I'm really new to ProcessWire, maybe I missed the solution in the documentation.
I'm working on a site which involves a lot of image upload fields, and I'm always getting many timeout errors. I'm pretty sure it's because I generate too many variations on a single page load (around 20 images with 7 different sizes, for them to be responsive).
I can't use ImageSizerEngineIMagick to help (my host doesn't support it).
I was wondering if there was a way to hook to the process of client-side image resizing (https://processwire.com/blog/posts/processwire-3.0.63-adds-client-side-image-resizing/) to generate the different variations (as it seems really faster). If not, is there a way to generate the different variations on upload and not on page load ?
Any ideas and suggestions are welcome!

More than a year after I submitted a proposal, I finally was given the contract to build a new website for a regional promotion organisation, promoting a very sparsely populated part of NZ.
The original website I think was running CMS Made Simple, however it was not mobile friendly, and the organisation of directory listings into categories was unreliable, and edits required requests to the original developer.
My brief was to make the site mobile friendly, and user editable, although I also ended up providing some of the photography as some of the site owners were slow to come forward with material themselves. I didn't rewrite content as that was beyond the scope of what I was asked to provide.
Bootstrap 4 came out after I'd already started the project, so it's built using Bootstrap 3.
Modules I used:
Admin Restrict Branch (So owners of listings can log in and edit their own listings, but nothing more) AIOM+ - I found the LESS compilation handy, as I could work with the Bootstrap source files and adjust variables rather than overriding compiled bootstrap. Fieldtype Phone - so I could easily format phone numbers so that they would work both as URLs and display correctly. Social Share Buttons - although I created a modified colour set of icons. Jumplinks - to map URLs from old site to maintain SEO.
I'm building a site and i noticed that loading time is very slow when we enter the site address for the first time. It takes about 1 minute or more just to start loading files and displaying the content.
However, after that period it's very fast and everything is ok. Once the page(s) is/are loaded, i can refresh them quickly and without any delay.
any one faced like this problem? and what can i do to resolve it.

While I was reading Smashing Magazine, I discovered this handy tool called XRespond that lets you load webpages in iframes that are designed to simulate different devices, (similar to how browsers' mobile simulators work).
I think it's quite useful for local development. In fact it works for any website as long as it doesnt have `X-Frame-Options` headers set to `sameorigin`. I highly recommend using it with browser-sync with live loading as well. I use this settings when using it with PHPStorm to live reload my dev site on pw.dev.
// remember set cwd to /site/templates/ or call it from templates directory path/to/browser-sync.cmd start --proxy pw.dev --port 8080 --files "**/*.php" --files "assets/**/*.css" --files "assets/**/*.css"
What other tools/utilities do you use for testing your responsive designs?
