Use WURFL Device Detection With NGINX for Mobile-Optimized Website, Faster Loading Images

WURFL InFuze NGINX Plus Load balance

Here is a great video of our Founder and CTO Luca Passani speaking at NGINX Conf 2017. Luca gives a quick overview of how to use WURFL InFuze Device Detection with NGINX  to develop a mobile-optimized website. He then dives into the problem that images pose. Today, the average webpage is over 2 MB, and 64% of that is images. This payload is too large for mobile devices, and the result is slow page loading. There are many approaches to solving the problem, but one of the most elegant is ImageEngine. It combines WURFL Device Detection, Image Optimization, and Smart CDN service […]

Slow Loading Images in Responsive Web Design? Solve with ImageEngine and NGINX Plus

ImageEngine solves slow loading images, reduces page load time

[the following was originally published on the NGINX Blog] Responsive web design (RWD) has been around for some time, making it through the “hype cycle” and finding its way to the “plateau of productivity”. With RWD, web developers possess frameworks and guidelines on how to make their design adjust dynamically to the browser window and, to some extent, to the form factor of users’ devices. However, all that glitters is not gold. Handling images in RWD has emerged as the major issue to address when website performance matters. In the case of classic one-size-fits-all image content, web developers are left with presenting a […]

Embracing Enterprise: WURFL is now a Certified Module for NGINX Plus

Luca Passani, CTO @ScientiaMobile “A man who is not a Liberal at twenty has no heart. A man who is not a Conservative at forty has no head.” – Attribution is controversial At the beginning of my professional career I was a staunch supporter of Open Source. As a young engineer, I had no budget, I was not supposed to have a budget, and I had been trained by my years in college to do things without a budget. After all, why use money on projects when using time to hack things together was so much cheaper?

Load Balance for NGINX with WURFL InFuze

Load Balance with NGINX with WURFL InFuze

NGINX provides flexible software-based load balancing. And now with the WURFL InFuze for NGINX Plus module, you can quickly inject WURFL’s device intelligence into NGINX Plus’ load balancing logic. NGINX Load Balancing Based on Smartphone, Tablet, or Other Device Form Factor WURFL provides a number of options for load balancing criteria within Open Source NGINX or NGINX Plus.  We can envision load balancing by operating system, browser type, or the price of the smartphone. In our following example (which will work for both Open Source NGINX and NGINX Plus), we load balance based on the device’s form factor.

You are not a man until…(WURFL InFuze and Raspberry PI)

“A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.“ Pretty much everyone must have heard several instances of the “you are not a man until…” sentence followed by some more or less moronic action. When it comes to C APIs, I suspect that the programming counterpart recently has become “You did not build a real C API until you can compile and run it on a Raspberry PI“. In fact, there seems to be a race to run every bit of software ever conceived on a Raspberry PI. So, it didn’t take much before someone in our […]

HTTP and Mobile: The Missing Header

“Everything you always wanted to know  about your HTTP Clients, but were afraid to ask.” Woody Allen, in a slightly more frivolous context    I cannot count the times I heard someone wonder why on earth device manufacturers never added an HTTP header that would make it obvious that an HTTP request is coming from a mobile device. I typically had witty answers to that question. ‘The header existed. It was called UAProf. Apple killed it’. Jokes aside, the answer to that question lies in the economics of the whole thing: mobile stakeholders do not agree on who is entitled […]
