Product and Feature Updates about Kinja

Magma rendering of post pages

Today we’ve enabled our new rendering engine called Magma to power the Kinja post pages.

Magma was built using current technologies, allowing the dev team to move faster, without breaking things. We’ve been using it for rendering all the post stream pages (front, category, tag and seach) and video posts for a while now, and tested our changes in multiple A/B tests, but this is the release that will see the biggest pressure, due to the traffic that these post pages get.

Ideally, these changes should not be visible for our users, and have no negative effect on site performance, but we’re keeping our eyes on all the regular bug reporting channels.
