Lighthouse: The lighthouse in the digital ocean

In the world of web design and development, it is essential to have tools that help us measure and improve the quality of our websites. One of these crucial tools is Lighthouse which was developed by Google. Lighthouse is part of the "Content & Web Analysis" module of Eye-Able Report. In this article, we dive into the world of Lighthouse to understand why it is important, how it works and what its key values and categories are.

What is Lighthouse?

Lighthouse is an automated tool for improving the quality of websites. It is integrated into Google Chrome and can also be used as a node module or via the command line. Lighthouse analyzes websites in various categories such as performance, accessibility, progressive web apps, SEO and best practices.

Why is Lighthouse important?

In today's digital landscape, it is crucial that websites are not only functional, but also fast, accessible and user-friendly. Lighthouse provides a comprehensive analysis of these aspects and gives developers and web designers concrete advice on how to improve their websites. This leads to a better user experience, higher conversion rates and ultimately a successful online presence.


Accessibility is another important aspect. An accessible website is usable for all users, including those with disabilities. Just like the tests of Eye-Able® Audit tests, Lighthouse checks whether a website complies with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) by analyzing aspects such as contrast, keyboard usability and ARIA attributes. All Ligthouse tests are already included in Eye-Able® audit and report included. Nevertheless, it can be interesting to observe the Lighthouse evaluation of individual pages.

Best Practices

In this category, Lighthouse checks whether a website follows general best practices. This includes security aspects, such as the use of HTTPS, as well as performance aspects, such as the optimization of images and scripts.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Search engine optimization is crucial for the visibility of a website. Lighthouse offers an SEO analysis that checks whether a page is optimized for search engines. This includes checks for meta tags, titles, links and whether the site is mobile-friendly.

Progressive Web Apps (PWAs)

PWAs are a type of web application that provide a high-quality user experience. Lighthouse evaluates how well a website performs as a PWA by checking factors such as offline capability, responsiveness and adherence to PWA best practices. If your site cannot implement a PWA, this rating is less important to you.


Lighthouse is an important tool for every website operator and a comprehensive extension of Eye-Able Report. It not only provides a detailed analysis of the various aspects of a website, but also gives practical recommendations for improvement. By using Lighthouse, you can ensure that a website is not only functional, but also user-friendly, accessible and performant.
