Content Delivery Network #
Duet serves all of its static assets through a Content Delivery Network for better performance and stability. CDN also makes it faster to implement and use our packages in production.
A content delivery network is a system of distributed servers that deliver pages and other static web content to users based on their geographic location, the origin of the webpage, and the content delivery server. Some of the benefits of using Duet’s CDN includes:
- Faster load times for all users.
- Better site performance and shared assets across different apps.
- Scales very rapidly during heavy traffic.
- Minimizes risk of traffic spikes at point of origin, ensuring stability.
- Decreases infrastructure costs due to traffic offloading.
- Faster to get up and running with development work, as teams don’t have to install the packages.

Subresource Integrity #
Subresource Integrity is a security feature that enables browsers to verify that resources they fetch from a CDN are delivered without unexpected manipulation. It works by allowing you to provide a cryptographic hash that a fetched resource must match (source: MDN).
Our documentation provides cryptographic hashes for the latest available package versions, but you can also generate these hashes yourself for older versions using e.g. openssl command line tool. To enable SRI verification, use the following tags in the
