Every page load calls 104.27.177.120?

    Why does Akaunting need to phone home on every page load? If internet disconnects, then the app does not work on the local network.


     


    Normal page loads here are about 900ms which is disgusting.

    Are those calls for the update check? Which URL is called?

    No idea. I didn't have time to look into it. I only opened windows 10 network monitor and saw PHP call this address everytime

    Can't edit, but why need to check updates every page?

    Just figured out what's happening: Akaunting is checking for new notifications from their API:


     


    https://akaunting.com/api/apps/notifications


     


    You can disable calls by editing app/Traits/Modules.php:


    Look For "getRemote" function and instantly return false instead if making the call.

    Yeah, made the loadNotifications return false and shaved off 200ms. Offline mode is still hindered by Google fonts though, will copy the theme and make a version with local fonts.
