I wanted to ask how long lists affect the loading times.
My to-do lists are getting longer day by day. I usually hide the completed tasks, but that doesn’t seem to have much of an effect on load times - does it?
List loading times are especially an issue when I want to quickly switch back and forth between different lists.
For a list with about 4000 entries, the page loads for about 8 seconds.
I myself have a fast internet connection (about 120 Mbps) and a PC with Ryzen Threadripper 1920x with 32 GB RAM. So it should not be caused by my system.
This mainly concerns my lists of “tasks” that are constantly growing. I also don’t want to permanently delete the completed tasks, as they may still provide important information at a later time and are, after all, a kind of “log”.
I was thinking that it might be possible to “unload” the completed tasks of a list - similar to hide/unhide them to load/unload them. In other words, save them in a form that still allows access to these entries but does not affect the performance of the current list.
Would this be useful or are there other ways to keep long lists fast?
