Cloudflare adds support for http2 server push

Cloudflare pushes forward! Read the entire article for a good explanation on http2 and server push.

Today, we’re happy to announce HTTP/2 Server Push support for all of our customers. Server Push enables websites and APIs to speculatively deliver content to the web browser before the browser sends a request for it. This behavior is opportunistic, since in some cases, the content might already be in the client’s cache or not required at all.


In semi-related news: Laravel Forge recently made a nice change as well. If you install an ssl certificate on a Froge provisioned server, http2 will be enabled by default.

Freek Van der Herten is a partner and developer at Spatie, an Antwerp based company that specializes in creating web apps with Laravel. After hours he writes about modern PHP and Laravel on this blog. When not coding he’s probably rehearsing with his kraut rock band. He loves waffles and butterflies.
