This item was not updated in last three versions of the Radar. Should it have appeared in one of the more recent editions, there is a good chance it remains pertinent. However, if the item dates back further, its relevance may have diminished and our current evaluation could vary. Regrettably, our capacity to consistently revisit items from past Radar editions is limited.

At AOE, we want to keep a permanent eye on the metrics of the Web Vitals for our projects.

Lighthouse CI is a collection of free tools that facilitate the use of Lighthouse for performance monitoring. With Lighthouse CI we get a history of evaluation results and can compare them over time. It is also possible to set performance budgets to ensure that a website's performance does not deteriorate through regression.

Although performance monitoring is the most common use case for Lighthouse CI, other aspects of Lighthouse can also be monitored, such as SEO or accessibility. Thus, the use of Lighthouse CI can help ensure an overall good user experience.
