Developers can use Netlify‘s platform to operate edge logic from preview to production, including build automation through git, atomic deploys to Netlify‘s multi-cloud edge network, site previews and instant rollbacks. Content and traffic are adjusted locally, without a roundtrip to an origin server.
- Frontend workflow: Frontend developers use their favorite tools in the Netlify platform to build, preview and deploy, while maintaining full control over how their content is served to the end user.
- Simplified customization at the edge: The Edge Handlers API can fetch, cache and update content, allowing developers to deliver a personalized, better web experience for visitors with minimal development work.
- Monitor and log activity: Detailed logs for Edge Handlers can be managed and viewed from within the Netlify UI, making it easy to track usage and resolve issues quickly.
- Validate and test locally: Coming soon, Edge Handlers can be created on a local machine or with Netlify developer tools, used with any frontend framework to proxy requests and test before shipping.
Netlify Edge Handlers are in Early Access and available on request.
