How to use the CDN.


Bundling combines or bundles multiple files into a single file. You can create CSS, JavaScript and other bundles. Fewer files means fewer HTTP requests and that can improve first page load  performance.

Minification performs a variety of different code optimizations to scripts or css, such as removing unnecessary white space and comments and shortening variable names to one character. Consider the following JavaScript function. Minification is autoenabled for bundles.

Compression can provide faster transmission times between the CDN and client browsers that can accept compressed files. Formats that are compressed:

To access a bundle:

JQuery (currently version 1.10.2)


Moderizr (currently version 2.6.2)

Bootstrap (currently version 3.0.0)

Custom Bundles (for example pharmacy)

Non-bundles items

Images (for example pharmacy)

CDNs are meant for caching

The CDN pulls from the original source and then caches it for 7 days. It must be manually purged to serve before the 7 day expiration.

The CDN is set to cache every unique URL. So it will will treat //cdnuc.azureedge.net/bundles/pharm/slp/js?1 as different than //cdnuc.azureedge.net/bundles/pharm/slp/js?2
