I have been working through a 6-week long nightmare of trying to get various plugins and their rabbit-holes of configurations trying to make my sites as optimized as possible, and serving .webp to compatible browsers has been the biggest headache of them all.
I thoroughly enjoy optimizing and getting this stuff to work, but I got a little trigger-happy with a .webp configuration I was trying to do and now I’m scrambling to get my clients’ images working on older/safari browsers. At this point, I’ve completely removed anything related to .webp because it seems to be way too volatile when mixed with caching and CDNs.
Roots is all about not reinventing the wheel, and I thought there MUST be a conventional way to serve .webp that this community already employes, but I can’t find anything anywhere.
And so here I am, presenting my plea for help! How do I serve WebP?!
Thank you for your time.
