✨ Features

This plugin provide a way to cache HTTP requests in order to improve performance. It's get inspired by varnish cache which is a popular caching solution.

The cache content is stored by a provider, which can be either an in-memory provider, a redis connection, a file system, or any other custom provider. You can set a strategy to tell what to cache and how much time responses should be cached. The cache will be invalidated when the related Content-Type is updated, so you never have to worry about stale data.
