  • The @layer0/react package - Provides a Prefetch component for prefetching pages
  • routes.js - A default routes file that sends all requests to Razzle. Update this file to add caching or proxy some URLs to a different origin.
  • sw/service-worker.js - The source code for your service worker, which enables prefetching when running on Edgio.
  • layer0.config.js - Contains configuration options for deploying on Edgio.
