There have been some questions about List.js performance. How many items can it handle? How fast is the indexing, sorting and searching in larger lists?
Today I have an answer: Try it yourself at http://listjs.com/examples/performance-test.html
But for you who just want some quick stats have I done some benchmarking myself.
Important: All these stats are based on first runs (read more about first runs in the last paragraph of this blog post). And I have a new Macbook Pro and Chrome, so these stats are first run-best cases):
One thing worth mentioning when it comes to List.js and performance is that the default settings (changeable) only allows 200 items to be visible at the same time. This is to boost performance and helps A LOT for larger list.
(Hint: In future releases the handling of larger lists will be much smoother, promis)
