We launched the new Layer0 docs to help you understand Layer0 better. Whether you are interested in understanding how to deploy your web application to the Layer0 Edge Network, deploy static and dynamic Jamstack sites that run on Layer0’s serverless functions, scale and secure your GraphQL API using the Layer0 global CDN, or protect your applications without sacrificing performance, we’ve put together a comprehensive documentation that’s growing, functional, and feedback-driven.
Product newsletters are back! We, at Layer0, have been busy joining forces with Limelight, one of the largest, private CDN networks on the planet, and have exciting updates. Read on to learn about caching GraphQL APIs at the edge, using our platform as a web CDN for any backend platform or front-end framework, and how to test drive EdgeJS for low latency and high performance.
Cache GraphQL APIs at the edge with serverless hosting on Layer0 for better performance and less traffic at your origin. Create powerful custom caching logic based cookies, authentication, URL patterns, and HTTP headers.
Track your serverless code’s memory usage to diagnose and avoid out-of-memory issues, especially in production code where these issues may occur intermittently or gradually over time. Other platform updates include CLS enhancements, Next.js 11 support, and configuring redirects without code.
Developers at Layer0 are continuously working to improve the console to increase your team's velocity and improve your overall experience. Our latest updates include framework support for Razzle, and monitoring enhancements such as Sourcemaps, Routes.js Caching Statistics, and Alerts.
Google is once again updating its algorithm--and it’s big. The Core Web Vitals update rolls out in May, and it’s all about speed and the user experience. More specifically, Google will start measuring all of the following: Largest Contentful Pain (LCP), First Input Delay (FID), and Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS).
Set to roll out in May 2021, Google's Page Experience update will change the ranking algorithm, based on Core Web Vital scores, and will include a visible indication of a website’s speed on Google SERP. Only 13% of eCommerce websites are ready for this update.
Layer0, the performance-focused home for all headless front-ends that makes them faster and easier to manage, announced it has joined the MACH Alliance, an independent group of tech companies dedicated to advocating for open, best-of-breed technology ecosystems.
CDNs and hosting solutions have evolved over the years to become much more than just infrastructure for storing website assets. Many modern application delivery networks now offer additional features to boost developer productivity and simplify the process of deploying, previewing, experimenting on, monitoring, and running a modern frontend or single-page application.
Ensuring sub-second load times for your eCommerce site is hard work. At Layer0, we've tried to make it a much simpler process, and Layer0 is here to help you achieve this milestone. What we've done here is to create a checklist which you can follow to ensure that your production site is blazingly fast, and you spend the least amount of time accomplishing it.
When developers choose a framework to use in their projects, they tend to focus on traits such as popularity, documentation, talent availability or community. While these considerations are important, we know that in the case of modern frontends, such as eCommerce Single-Page Applications (SPAs), the focus is on the user experience. And website speed is a fundamental element of that.
In this article, we analyze the performance of the modern frontends: Angular, Next.js, Nuxt.js, React and Vue.js. We quickly found that Nuxt.js leads the pack, followed by Vue.js and Next.js. Read on for our detailed finding.
Here are possible ways to get Salesforce Commerce Cloud (SFCC for short) up to speed and run a fast, highly performant website that ranks high in Google’s search results. Instead of spending the precious dollars trying to shave a single second off the load times, you can deliver an instant-loading website with half the effort.
Google's upcoming Page Experience Update introduces a new ranking algorithm. This presents an opportunity for Magento 2 websites who want to look beyond the meat-and-potatoes speed optimization tactics and go sub-second.
The key benefits of going headless include: frontend portability, website speed and SEO improvements, and support for future use cases. See which eCommerce platform has the best readiness to go headless.
Layer0 analyzed real-user data from Google’s Chrome User Experience Report to provide travel and hospitality website speed benchmarks. Six Flags is the fastest of the pack with an impressive 71.86% of its pages loading in under a second, on mobile.
React PWAs and SPAs now have a compelling offering for accurately measuring client-side navigations (i.e. browsing speed). This is critical because most synthetic performance tools (such as Lighthouse) typically measure only the first-page load, even though browsing makes up the bulk of the user experience.
Checkout is the most important part of your entire web experience because that is where all the work you’ve put into customer acquisition, education and retention actually converts to revenue and ROI. If your mobile checkout flow is bad - they don’t buy and there’s no ROI.
We conducted research on a subset of the over 250 mobile experiences we power to understand: does the ease of using PayPal translate to higher conversion rates? PayPal has a 14% lower conversion rate than users who choose to pay by credit card.
