Overview

Speedster by Fooman

• Combines multiple Javascript and CSS files into a single Javascript file and single CSS file, to enable faster page load times
• Reduces the total size of files to be loaded as well as the number of HTTP requests, for empty and primed caches
• Fully automated once installed, with automatic versioning when Javascript/CSS files are updated
• Compresses files without requiring gzip support on your server
• Creates far future expire headers for the combined Javascript and CSS files
• Multi store capable
• Uses the Minify library by Steve Clay (released under a BSD license)

Fooman Speedster is now controlled by an advanced self testing framework. You can only enable Speedster once the configuration has been set up correctly and all self tests run successfully.

Note that the self test does not include testing for existing Javascript errors on your site - it's still important to do this separately before installing Fooman Speedster (see below for details).

Important - Before you Install Fooman Speedster

Please ensure you read and understand all installation and troubleshooting instructions
Ask your Magento developer to install the extension if you don't understand something in the instructions. If you do not follow all steps in the installation and troubleshooting instructions, the installation of Fooman Speedster could fail and generate errors on your site.

Always install Fooman Speedster first on your test site, before installing it on your live site
If any errors occur, it is far preferable to complete our troubleshooting instructions on your test site so your live site will remain unaffected.

Always test for existing Javascript errors on your site before installing Fooman Speedster
Fooman Speedster relies on all Javascript on your store being completely error free. If your store contains existing Javascript errors, these will be magnified when installing Speedster and could cause issues with your store's frontend. The Speedster self test does not include testing for existing Javascript errors on your site. It is important to do this separately before installing Fooman Speedster (you can test with http://jslint.com). If there any existing Javascript errors are identified on your site, ensure these are completely fixed before installing Fooman Speedster.

Ensure your site meets all system requirements (see below)

We provide Fooman Speedster as a free extension to the Magento community. Please be fair to us and do not post negative reviews for errors which can be avoided by following the installation and troubleshooting instructions (these are comprehensive and cover 95% of all issues reported to us since 2008). Unfortunately the majority of recent negative reviews that have been published via Magento Connect describe errors where either system requirements were not met, or instructions were not followed correctly. Please take care to follow all instructions correctly, and if you believe you have found a genuine error, contact us to report it in the first instance rather than leaving a negative review via Magento Connect. Thank you.

We wish you a successful installation and hope that you are impressed by the results Fooman Speedster can deliver on your store.

System Requirements - Is Fooman Speedster right for my Store?

System Requirements
Fooman Speedster works out of the box using an Apache platform run on Linux. In addition:
• Mod_rewrite (a standard Apache module installed by default on most Linux servers) must be enabled
• .htaccess must be supported
• CSS images must be available under the same domain as the store

Note: Several developers have also successfully installed Fooman Speedster on different platforms by adapting the installation process. For further reading see the ISAPI2 and Nginx threads.

Risk of Javascript Errors
Fooman Speedster has been tested with the default Magento themes and successfully installed on tens of thousands of Magento stores since 2008. However, there is always a risk that minifying and combining Javascript files can produce Javascript errors. We do not recommend using Fooman Speedster without thorough testing on a test site if:
• Your store already contains minified files
• Significant Javascript customisation work has been done on your store and the added non-default Javascript files do not follow best practice Javascript (you can test with http://jslint.com/)
• Your store uses Jquery (or has extensions installed which use Jquery) - although a workaround is provided in the instructions, almost 100% of reported errors are from stores which also use Jquery

Speedster Advanced
Fooman Speedster Advanced uses an advanced caching strategy which combines, compresses and caches JS and CSS files. Click here to see if this extension is right for your store.

About the Developer

Speedster by Fooman is rated 1.0 out of 5 by 188.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Borked Magento This plugin borked my CE installation and totally ruined the way that CSS was served, making the site unusable on the back and front end. I don't know if there is decent support or not, because I just uninstalled it and moved on with my life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good extention I installed this plugin on all (three) of our webshops, and it really speeded up the stores! Our stores are on Magento 1.7.0.2 and 1.4.1.1 Support was great, they helped me out via email.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from CSS can't render Site looked like CSS is broken after installing. Immediately removed and the site works. Not good.
Date published: 2013-04-17
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful Extension - Works on 1.7.0.2 The built-in Magento JavaScript combiner broke our site so we installed this extension instead. It is working well for us (crowdoutlet.com) and provides a noticeable speed improvement. We have a ton of CSS and JavaScript files, and this extension successfully combines and minifies them to reduce server requests and load times. We had trouble getting it working with APC. There was simply nothing we could do to get them to jive together. However, it works fine with eAccelerator and memcached, which honestly were faster for us than APC, anyway. Support was quick and helpful when we had questions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Destroys site - no support provided. Use at own risk. With over 59,397 downloads of this extension...we had high hopes. Hopes were dashed though, after seeing this extension thrash the frontend AND the admin area on TWO separate sites. Documentation is sorely lacking. Support doesn't exist - not even if you offer to pay for it. So sad...this is a perfect example of where open-source defeats itself. There needs to be a paid edition. In fact, the first revision after the initial free offering should have had a price on it. If half of the total downloaders paid $30 - Fooman Speedster would have almost 900k in development dollars poured into it by now. Just think...of how much better it would be - and how much better off all of us users would be - and how much happier all of our clients would be...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This extension seems to work flawlessly I just installed it onto our website http://peruzzi-high-fashion.com and for now it's working like a charm!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never worked but great support I posted the previous comment about the 503 error. I installed the extension but for some reason it crashed my front and backend. I must not have gone through the installation instructions correctly. I emailed extension support and they kindly provided me the details for how to uninstall. Contacted my hosting provided and turns out after the install magento went into maintenance mode. So I had to delete the maintenance file in my root folder and everything was back working. Going to give install another go :)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Site Crash Hi, I installed the extension but my front and backend has totally crashed. I get "error 503:service unavailable Service Temporarily Unavailable The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to maintenance downtime or capacity problems. Please try again later." My domain is www.nurserykingdom.co.uk Any help would be great cause I cant access my prodcuts and more. Thanks
