Energy consumption is a crucial part of the mobile experience, and even though it is related to performance, it is worth having a separate. The end goal is:
- to provide a toolkit and guidelines to test energy efficiency of different parts of an app on different platforms;
- using this toolkit to fix the top battery drainers;
- notice regressions early by having tests in place.
Create a BoK for Energy efficiency testing: https://github.com/orgs/status-im/projects/18 a. test apps are created for both Android and iOS b. test cases are written and tools are created to measure the energy efficiency of both Status client (status-react+status-go) and tests apps (status-go exclusively). c. tests are run on a regular basis d. (stretch goal) tests are automated for both platforms
Fix obvious issues with energy consumption https://github.com/orgs/status-im/projects/17
- We have test cases and tools to check the energy efficiency of
- We can notice regressions/improvements caused, e.g. by updating the version of
go-ethereumor new features of Status;
- Top energy draining issues are identified and fixed.
KR: (1) foreground chat energy consumption is < 120% of the apps in a similar class (messengers) (2) background chat energy consumption is < 120% of the apps in a similar class (messengers) (3) foreground dapps energy consumption is < 120% of the apps in a similar class (browsers)
MVP (development): Identify top issues with CPU hogging in Status for Android
