Hi guys! I know that Shopify's default flow is to load the theme first before the apps. But since our store is kinda slow, it takes roughly 1.5-2 seconds for the variant swatch app to show up -- and my boss hates it. It does not look good. I reached out to the app dev and the theme dev. None of them can help. Does anyone have an idea?

Here is a link to the product page so you can see whats happening: https://nuroco.com/collections/iphone-cases/products/luxury-star-case-for-iphone-6s-6-s-plus-iphone-...

 

I'd appreciate any help you could give. Thanks a million!

This is an accepted solution.

Shopify will load the APPs after the on load event: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/Window/load_event

This fire after all the page resources (images, styles, js...) are loaded.

 

The only way to speed the APPs, in this current setup,  is to improve your theme load speed.

That page loads around 6MB, including the APPs.

Hi Mircea! Thanks for the tip! I would most certainly want to make my store load faster. I already reduced my apps to the bare minimum, and optimized my images. But it really doesn't load fast. Any tips on this topic please? Anything you'd wanna change on my store?
