Webp Images Module

Module overview

Convert product images and cms content to webp format.

Module compatibility

This module is compatibile with Magento Community versions: 2.3.

How it works

After installing and enabling module in Stores > Aurora > webP - Product image conversion. Module will automaticly start cron that converts all product images to webp format.
Filling Quality of conversion with number from 1-99 defines how much information loss will be applied when converting image.
Enable automatic conversion for static content starts automatic conversion for all pages/blocks on your site. You can also convert cms content manually using buttons over the grid in Content > Pages or Content > Blocks.
All automatic conversions starts at 00:00 am.
Due to the fact that magento2 is not compatible with webp format - pictures converted will appear as broken in cms edit content sections. They will appear fine in your front.
