In a recent site profiling, I found that the output from a D8 Views REST export wasn't getting gzipped.
The Chrome Audit reported that gzipping would reduce the payload size by ~ 2/3 (~69.4 KB).
Add the following to
# Force enable compression of any JSON output. # mod_deflate will only compress if client supports it. # https://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/mod/mod_deflate.html # Don't use this with reverse proxies, lest the compressed response # get cached for all clients. <IfModule mod_deflate.c> AddOutputFilterByType DEFLATE application/json application/hal+json </IfModule>
