Slow-loading websites are a pain to use, and they can cost you users. Plus, there’s no excuse for a sluggish website considering how many ways there are to speed up performance, including caching. There are a lot of ways to implement caching, as well as tools that can help you get the job done. In this…
Caching therefore plays an essential role in optimizing websites to deliver high-performance. Not only does it help support faster load times than otherwise possible, but it also helps in reducing latency. The information can be stockpiled at every level right from the original server to intermediate proxies to the browser.
For some purposes it may be necessary to have content, or content elements, that may vary according to a certain time period, and therefore require a cache invalidation according to a certain duration. This is for example the typical case of a list of future and/or past events, which must invariably change over time. Drupal 8 has three cache systems:
Serving dynamic content, while maintaining the cacheability of a Drupal 8 site, used to be a tedious task. Drupal 8 did introduce a Lazy Builder way back when, but using it requires a fair amount of coding. Instead, we’ll take advantage of the BigPipe module which was included as a stable module since Drupal 8.3.
