I recently learned about Crystal Language and really find it exciting. Trying out a few examples of my own, I came across CrystalShards.org and CrystalShards.xyz as useful sites to lookup existing shards. However, thinking that these sites cater to Crystal language users and would be built using Crystal themselves, I’m perplexed as to why they are sooo slow? Example request below took close to 7s. Can someone please explain why this is so?
Thank you in advance!
