Speed is 🔑
Apps built for Slack by their nature are real time. All facets of speed are critical factors for creating a great user experience. And with performance as our guide I am very pleased to say we support the entire Slack Web API in a 7kb (not gzip’d) payload that has been solidly tested for all LTS versions of Node and modern evergreen browsers.
Being so tiny means this library loads super fast which makes it perfect for AWS Lambda and browser-based applications where cold start responsiveness is critical.
