embed loads slow and overrides prevailing CSS

Joel 8 months ago updated 8 months ago 2

I am encountering some issues with embedding my bibliography. Please see: https://www.theglobalmontessorinetwork.org/history-bibliography

The page takes approx. 12 seconds to load.

The JS appears to override the site's existing CSS.

Is it possible to optimize the pageload and override the style imposed by the JS?

Your bibtex file contains over 3,000 entries and is 2MB big. When formatted by BibBase the resulting HTML is 15MB. Yes, that will take a while to download on most connections. I'm afraid there isn't too much that can be done to speed that up. I would recommend breaking up the page into several with smaller sub-sets of the entire list, maybe one per keyword?

CSS overrides each other, yes, but all of BibBase's proprietary CSS is namespaced (prefixed with bibbase_) so that shouldn't interfere. BibBase does load bootstrap though and that sometimes clashes with other rules. What specifically is not working? If in doubt, you can always force your own rules to supersede anything else by adding "!important" behind them, if that's an option for you.

Oy! I didn't realize how big the resulting HTML file was. :)

The bibliography I am creating will continue to grow and will ultimately be somewhere in the tens of thousands. Do you have any recommendations for scalable options?
