Published my first GitHub project ever: A small animated Christmas tree demo for the ESP32 microcontroller, specifically the LilyGO TTGO T-Display board with a built-in colour LCD display.
In addition to the animated tree, it also offers a WiFi hotspot and a web server for setting up the animation and the text displayed.
Instead of scripting the browser to click on the Start link, the easiest way to automatically start the test is to use a query string parameter like this:
The only problem is that WebPagetest will stop the test before it has completed, but you can work around that by setting the “Mininum test duration” under the Advanced tab. A value of 80 seconds seems suitable for most agents, but if you get incomplete Octane results for some test locations you might have to increase this.
Here are some example measurements for European locations, collected by making 9 test runs (first+repeat view) and collecting the lowest and the highest scoring runs:
|Ireland - EC2|
|Amsterdam, NL – Go Daddy|
|Amsterdam, NL – IISpeed|
|Frankfurt, Germany – Dynatrace|
|Germany - EC2|
|Prague, Czech Republic|
As you can see, the Prague location is actually the best performing one, followed by the IISpeed agent in Amsterdam.
I just created my blog based on MiniBlog

. It has the essential functionality of a blog and is very compactly written, exactly the way I like it.
