Add Compression to Express in Node.js

In this tutorial we will use the Node.js Express compression middleware package to implement basic compression our server. Compression encodes information into a smaller size than the original, decreasing the bandwidth usage of an application and providing faster download speeds for clients.

By the end of this tutorial, you should be able to:

  • Enable compression of responses
  • Check response size using DevTools
