Compression for SVG

  1. Is it possible to turn on compression for SVG files in a way it's made for text and JS files?

    Yes. You should be able to modify your web.config file to compress .svg files. Sample markup here.
  3. I've modified my web.config by adding this:

        <httpCompression minFileSizeForComp="10" staticCompressionIgnoreHitFrequency="true">
          <scheme name="gzip" />
            <add mimeType="image/svg+xml" enabled="true" />
        <urlCompression doStaticCompression="true" doDynamicCompression="true" />
    It does work, but not always - it looks like my website sends it compressed only when I reload the page to the browser. Compression for JS files works all the time. Should I specify any other parameters there?

    Please see this link. I vaguely remember it has something to do with the frequency of the requests.
  5. Thank you, your link helped a lot. It seems, that this:
    <httpCompression staticCompressionIgnoreHitFrequency="true">
    is useless. Only this:
    <serverRuntime frequentHitThreshold="1" frequentHitTimePeriod="23:59:59" />
