Shopify Theme Inspector for Chrome
The Shopify Theme Inspector for Chrome is a browser plugin that visualizes Liquid render profiling data in a flame graph. You can use this graph and the profiling data to identify the parts of your theme code that are slowing down an online store.
Even if a theme is designed with performance in mind, apps and customizations made to theme code can cause the online store to slow down. Liquid customizations often contribute to these slowdowns. Slow Liquid templates impact server response times, which increases the time it takes for a page to start rendering.
After you identify the code that's slowing down the store, you can optimize it to make the store faster and convert more visitors.
The Shopify Theme Inspector for Chrome can be used to analyze Liquid on your personal store, or stores that you have collaborator access to.
Optimizing your Liquid code can improve the experience, conversion rate, and discoverability of an online store. Learn more about online store and theme performance.
