FAQ

Does APART work with CSS image backgrounds?

APART are working on a solution for handling basic CSS image backgrounds in upcoming releases

What image file types does APART support for streaming?

JPG and PNG.

Why are my website images blurry after implementing the APART script?

When blurry images are shown this is most likely a result of prefixing images on pages where the APART script is not implemented in the head tag. Make sure that the APART script is added to every page where the APART prefix is used.

Why are the images not streamed when I’m testing the website in a local development environment?

APART requires the images to be publicly accessible over the internet. If not, APART will fallback to the original image.

How does the solution work?

The first time an image is requested, e.g. when a visitor is access a page (or a crawler), a request for the image will be sent to the APART server. Since this is the first time the image is being requested, the image is not transcoded, so the visitor will simply be redirected to the original image source. In parallel the image will be downloaded and transcoded be APART. When transcoding of the image is completed, the following image requests will be streamed to any user visiting the site.
