Using the Cache API

Use the Cache API to store responses in Cloudflare's cache.

async function handleRequest(event) {  const request = event.request  const cacheUrl = new URL(request.url)
  // Construct the cache key from the cache URL  const cacheKey = new Request(cacheUrl.toString(), request)  const cache = caches.default
  // Check whether the value is already available in the cache  // if not, you will need to fetch it from origin, and store it in the cache  // for future access  let response = await cache.match(cacheKey)
  if (!response) {    // If not in cache, get it from origin    response = await fetch(request)
    // Must use Response constructor to inherit all of response's fields    response = new Response(response.body, response)
    // Cache API respects Cache-Control headers. Setting s-max-age to 10    // will limit the response to be in cache for 10 seconds max
    // Any changes made to the response here will be reflected in the cached value    response.headers.append("Cache-Control", "s-maxage=10")
    // Store the fetched response as cacheKey    // Use waitUntil so you can return the response without blocking on    // writing to cache    event.waitUntil(cache.put(cacheKey, response.clone()))  }  return response}
addEventListener("fetch", event => {  try {    const request = event.request    return event.respondWith(handleRequest(event))  } catch (e) {    return event.respondWith(new Response("Error thrown " + e.message))  }})
