Bubble servers really sucks it can't load fast


Why is Bubble site and associated service is very slow to load?
I’m building a web app, but the time I’m spending waiting the site to load is longer than what I’m spending building my app.


Your total available capacity governs the entire stack. That’s pretty much it. Bubble effectively throttles HTTP requests. So one sees a lot of “loading, xxx package” messages before the DOM even begins readying. It’s just life in Bubble.

With enough capacity, this dissipates. The total number of units to bring this to Squarespace response times is unknown, but it’s costly. But on the other hand, you can instantiate entire multi-user apps in a button click. What’s that worth?
