A basic starter kit that demonstrates routing, simple synthetic responses and overriding caching rules.
Use this starter
Using the Fastly CLI, create a new project using this starter somewhere on your computer:
Or click the button below to create a GitHub repository, provision a Fastly service, and set up continuous deployment:
- Allow only requests with particular HTTP methods
- Match request URL path and methods for routing
- Build synthetic responses at the edge
Understanding the code
This starter is intentionally lightweight, and requires no dependencies aside from the
@fastly/js-compute npm package. It will help you understand the basics of processing requests at the edge using Fastly. This starter includes implementations of common patterns explained in our using Compute@Edge and VCL migration guides.
The starter doesn't require the use of any backends. Once deployed, you will have a Fastly service running on Compute@Edge that can generate synthetic responses at the edge.
The template uses webpack to bundle
index.js and its imports into a single JS file,
bin/index.js, which is then wrapped into a
bin/index.wasm using the
js-compute-runtime CLI tool bundled with the
@fastly/js-compute npm package, and bundled into a
.tar.gz file ready for deployment to Compute@Edge.
Starters are a good way to bootstrap a project. For more specific use cases, and answers to common problems, try our library of code examples.
