Can an app handle lazy loading or is coding needed?

Is there an app that will lazy load pages or is it something that has to be done with code?

This is an accepted solution.

I haven't ever found an app to lazyload images in shopify.

Most themes have proper lazyloading, usually when you hire a developer to add a new section they might forget to add lazyloading.

The simplest way to enable lazyloading is to add loading="lazy" to your image tags.

 

like < img src="whatever" c lass="stuff" alt="a thing" loading=lazy" >

Ok great. Thanks for that. I'm going through and optimizing images which hopefully should help as well!

Hey, not sure if you still need this but it might come in handy for people with similar problems. We've recently released an app called Lazify that can automatically lazy load description images with one click.

You can check it out here: https://apps.shopify.com/lazify-lazy-load-images-1

Hope that helps!
