Hello, 

 

Currently working on adding some custom features to the customize theme section. These features include a lot of blocks where the client can drop in more information that gets styled in a specific way on the front end. I want to add more of these blocks but I have hit a 256kb limit.

 

Is there anyway around this?

Shopify support said there is a 256KB limit on ALL theme files as of 2/20/2020, they are submitting a ticket to increase the limit for settings_data.json and settings_schema.json to 512KB.  They are hesitant to increase them because of possible site speed issues, but settings_schema.json should only be loaded by the Theme Editor...

It would be nice if they minified the files on their end before checking the filesize or serving them just to give us a few more KB.
