Preload images in background idle time.
A simple function to preload images in background idle time.
Queueing resources' requests download is important for optimization. Normally preload important images resources can be done with
<link rel="preload> but what if there're a lot of requests?
Would you like to increase size on HTML file? like:
<link rel="preload" href="/mock1.jpg"><link rel="preload" href="/mock2.png"><link rel="preload" href=">...50 more resources to be preloaded.
Ouch! That's a lot of kB wasted!
Why even waste that spaces when you can just simply:
And can even be configured:
Or wait until images's request is loaded
// or inside async functionawaitconsole
And the package size is just only 1kB!
Now you can just preload image without touching HTML. (Imagine you use React.js, Vue.js. You can just preload them directly!)
