Is it bad for performance to always use backticks for strings?

My apps are in Spanish and therefore I need to use backpacks often. Now I default to always use back-ticks because sometimes I would forget and the accents would look like unicode.

Is there any performance penalization for always using back-ticks?

Assuming you’re talking about using without embedded expressions there’s no runtime overhead when using backticks (check output).

P.S there are some unicode related work in progress so we are likely to use default double quote string literals in the future.


there are no performance issue. as @amiralies mentioned, we are working on to make the double quote has the same semantics with backtick
