Description Niklas Laxström 2013-04-10 12:50:26 UTC
Evaluate which resource loader modules really need position => top and remove it from others.
Comment 1 Andre Klapper 2013-04-10 13:23:44 UTC
I assume this was meant for ULS, hence correcting component.
Comment 2 Siebrand Mazeland 2013-04-10 13:25:13 UTC
Added Roan and Timo on CC. Just in case they are interested.
Comment 3 Amir E. Aharoni 2014-01-30 09:25:01 UTC
The evaluation was done and implemented in November.
Comment 4 Niklas Laxström 2014-01-30 09:58:46 UTC
If someone actually did this, I am not aware of it.
Comment 5 Bartosz Dziewoński 2014-01-30 11:51:54 UTC
Are there any notes from this available, or any commits made as a result?
Comment 6 Nemo 2014-02-24 07:56:06 UTC
This is the only blocker currently left for bug 56292, can it be prioritised?
Comment 7 Amir E. Aharoni 2014-03-21 10:51:05 UTC
Santhosh, can you please explain how you made the decisions about this?
Comment 8 Santhosh Thottingal 2014-08-25 11:58:56 UTC
This is bit old, anyway, there were lot of refactoring around the RL modules of ULS. I am listing a set of bug reports and patches, that addressed this in direct and indirect way. The commit message and bug report discussions will provide history

* Avoid loading jquery.jStorage for logged in users
* Delay loading of jquery.uls.grid (merged)
* Move button styles to separate module (merged)
* Use unescaped Unicode (merged to upstream, merged)
* Refactor ime lazy loading (merged)

The main idea was to keep only RLs with position top that affects the page flicker if not top loaded- mainly the ones that affect the page rendering. Following are the top loaded modules in master code right now:

1. ext.uls.nojs
2. ext.uls.init
3. ext.uls.inteface
Comment 9 Santhosh Thottingal 2014-11-19 11:22:28 UTC
Closing the bug, assuming details given above are sufficient.
