Hi there benevolent developers and people with knowledge about the intricacies of image processing in hugo and golang: What is your view on implementing webp into the image processing functionality and what keeps you from doing it?
I know it must be a technical issue, because the browser threshold supporting this went over 87% recently, so it can be considered a usable format. I don’t want to incense a religious discussion about the pro and con’s of webp, but I think Hugo should be able to easily compile my ugly 5mb jpg into a nice fast loading 200kb webp image.
PS: Asking because the issues on Github about webp get more and more passive-agressive by the week.
PPS: It’s more or less not a “please come one and do it finally now or I will go back to WordPress” question but one of “what keeps you from doing it and what is the timeline (in months?) to have this feature running” question
