Let’s decipher Magento full page cache and see how it works
We are going to try to explain how Magento full page cache works by looking at the code, it’d be cool if we’d have talked with some of the folks at Magento to get a better information but hey you should always trust xdebug over humans’ words, right?
Our approach is very simple, look at the workflow and try to translate it into words. So we are doing some reverse engineering here… take the code and explain the logic back.
Why write about Magento’s full page cache?
Two of the most requested articles I have been asked to write so far have been about magento’s full page cache and Magento’s SEO.
Today we are going to try to tackle the former and hope to get 2 things out of it:
- Magento’s Full Page Cache: how does it work and…
- How you can write your own module to handle Full Page Caching.
This article is pretty ambitious and we may need to write a follow up to crush all doubts. Don’t hesitate to use the comment section or twitter for clarification.
