Prerender plugin to cache responses in Amazon S3

Prerender S3 Cache plugin

This is a plugin meant to be used with your Prerender server to cache responses in Amazon S3.

Run this from within your Prerender server directory:

$ npm install prerender-aws-s3-cache --save
server.js
const prerender = require('prerender');
const server = prerender();

server.use(require('prerender-aws-s3-cache'))

server.start();
Test it:
curl http://localhost:3000/render?url=https://www.example.com/

A GET request will check S3 for a cached copy. If a cached copy is found, it will return that. Otherwise, it will make the request to your server and then persist the HTML to the S3 cache.

A POST request will skip the S3 cache. It will make a request to your server and then persist the HTML to the S3 cache. The POST is meant to update the cache.

You'll need to sign up with Amazon Web Services and export these 3 environment variables.

$ export AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=<aws access key>
$ export AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=<aws secret access key>
$ export S3_BUCKET_NAME=<bucket name>

Warning! Your keys should be kept private and you'll be charged for all files uploaded to S3.

If Prerender is hosted on a EC2 instance, you can also take advantage of IAM instance roles so that you don't need to export your AWS credentials.

You can also export the S3_PREFIX_KEY variable so that the key (which is by default the complete requested URL) is prefixed. This is useful if you want to organize the snapshots in the same bucket.

Options

REGION

By default, s3HtmlCache works with the US Standard region (East), if your bucket is localized in another region you can config it with an environment variable : AWS_REGION.

$ export AWS_REGION=<region name>

For example :

$ export AWS_REGION=eu-west-1

S3_PREFIX_KEY

Allows you to prefix your keys if you want all of your snapshots to live in a specific folder inside your S3 bucket

export S3_PREFIX_KEY=prerender

default: none
