How it works

Speed Kit uses Service Workers to accelerate the requests made by your website


1

Frontend

When your website loads a resource (e.g. an image or script), Speed Kit intercepts the HTTP request. If your config does not exclude the content type or URL, Baqend handles the request.
2

Network

Speed Kit routes the request through Baqend's caching infrastructures. In most cases, the response is already cached and returned with very low latency.
3

Backend

Whenever content changes, you call the Baqend API (or click the button), so Baqend immediately refetches changed content. Baqends caching algorithms automatically update all caches in realtime (including users' browser caches).
