Google’s Lighthouse auditing tool for websites is a great open-source resource for benchmarking and improving the accessibility, performance, SEO, and best practices of your site.
This plugin allows you to trigger Lighthouse audits on websites and track them.
- Track multiple websites’ audit performance over time using the main metrics that Lighthouse outputs:
