    1. If a UTF8-encoded Ruby string contains unicode characters, then indexing into that string becomes O(N). This can lead to very bad performance in string_end_with_semicolon?, as it would have to scan through the whole buffer for every single file. This commit fixes it to use UTF32 if there are any non-ascii characters in the files.
    1. What is the point of avoiding the semicolon in concat_javascript_sources

      For how detailed and insightful his analysis was -- which didn't elaborate or even touch on his not understanding the reason for adding the semicolon -- it sure appeared like he knew what it was for. Otherwise, the whole issue would/should have been about how he didn't understand that, not on how to keep adding the semicolon but do so in a faster way!

      Then again, this comment from 3 months afterwards, indicates he may not think they are even necessary: https://github.com/rails/sprockets/issues/388#issuecomment-252417741

      Anyway, just in case he really didn't know, the comment shortly below partly answers the question:

      Since the common problem with concatenating JavaScript files is the lack of semicolons, automatically adding one (that, like Sam said, will then be removed by the minifier if it's unnecessary) seems on the surface to be a perfectly fine speed optimization.

      This also alludes to the problem: https://github.com/rails/sprockets/issues/388#issuecomment-257312994

      But the explicit answer/explanation to this question still remains unspoken: because if you don't add them between concatenated files -- as I discovered just to day -- you will run into this error:

         (intermediate value)(...) is not a function
             at something.source.js:1
      

      , apparently because when it concatenated those 2 files together, it tried to evaluate it as:

         ({
           // other.js
         })()
         (function() {
           // something.js
         })();
      

      It makes sense that a ; is needed.

    2. And no need to walk backwards through all these strings which is surprisingly inefficient in Ruby.
    3. Since the common problem with concatenating JavaScript files is the lack of semicolons, automatically adding one (that, like Sam said, will then be removed by the minifier if it's unnecessary) seems on the surface to be a perfectly fine speed optimization.
    4. reducing it down to one call significantly speeds up the operation.
    5. I feel like the walk in string_end_with_semicolon? is unnecessarily expensive when having an extra semicolon doesn't invalidate any JavaScript syntax.

    1. The template language's restrictions compared to JavaScript/JSX-built views are part of Svelte's performance story. It's able to optimize things ahead of time that are impossible with dynamic code because of the constraints. Here's a couple tweets from the author about that

    1. It's fast. The Dart VM is highly optimized, and getting faster all the time (for the latest performance numbers, see perf.md). It's much faster than Ruby, and close to par with C++.

    1. In the vast majority of cases there’s nothing wrong about wasted renders. They take so little resources that it is simply undetectable for a human eye. In fact, comparing each component’s props to its previous props shallowly (I’m not even talking about deeply) can be more resource extensive then simply re-rendering the entire subtree.

    1. In some frameworks you may see recommendations to avoid inline event handlers for performance reasons, particularly inside loops. That advice doesn't apply to Svelte — the compiler will always do the right thing, whichever form you choose.
