What is Unlighthouse?

Unlighthouse is a powerful tool designed to optimize website performance by leveraging Google Lighthouse audits.

This utility provides users with a command-line interface to perform Lighthouse audits on local development environments.

Unlighthouse is Open source, fully configurable tool that scans your entire site using Google Lighthouse, with a modern UI, minimal config and smart sampling.

Since Unlighthouse builds on top of Lighthouse, It provide a number of advantages over Lighthouse, including:

  • Speed: Unlighthouse is significantly faster than Lighthouse, especially for auditing large websites.
  • Scalability: Unlighthouse can audit websites of any size, while Lighthouse can struggle to audit large websites without crashing.
  • Ease of use: Unlighthouse has a user-friendly interface that makes it easy to configure and run audits.
  • Extensibility: Unlighthouse is open source and extensible, so you can customize it to meet your specific needs.

Additionally, Unlighthouse allows you to audit multiple routes at a time, which is not possible with Lighthouse.

  1. Install Unlighthouse globally:

    • npm install -g unlighthouse
  2. Run an audit on your website using the following command:

    • npx unlighthouse --site <your-site> OR pnpm dlx unlighthouse --site <your-site>
