• SuperAPI turbocharges APIs, making them 10 times faster by transforming fetch APIs into cacheable wonders.
• Solving the cache conundrum, SuperAPI monitors and makes non-cacheable APIs cacheable, ensuring real-time data invalidation and minimal latency.
• With an average latency of 30ms, pre-caching strategies, and features like reactive client updates, SuperAPI transcends traditional CDNs, shaping a future of optimized, turbocharged API performance.
In the bustling world of applications, where speed and responsiveness is of essence, SuperAPI emerges as the hero, revolutionizing how APIs are handled. Founded in 2022 by Adithya Kavuluru, SuperAPI is not just another gateway. It's a programmable force transforming fetch APIs into supercharged, cacheable wonders, slashing response times by 10 times.
The Cache Conundrum
Picture this: application APIs deemed non-cacheable due to ever-changing data, the complexity of GraphQL, or the use of REST APIs fetching via POST. Enter SuperAPI, the problem-solver extraordinaire. It monitors incoming POST/PUT/PATCH API calls and database updates, making these non-cacheable APIs cacheable.
Real-time invalidation magic
One might wonder, can SuperAPI truly eliminate stale cache data? The answer is a resounding yes. SuperAPI's prowess lies in its ability to watch and listen, not just to your APIs but also to the heartbeat of your database.
Every incoming API call triggering potential data modifications is meticulously observed, ensuring instantaneous invalidation and guaranteeing users an experience free of outdated information.
Latency? What latency?
With an average latency of a mere 30ms and a p99 latency of 55ms, SuperAPI puts latency concerns to rest. The secret? A vigilant eye on API traffic patterns. SuperAPI proactively pre-caches your most frequently used APIs, a clever move that significantly contributes to faster first-load timings.
Dynamic APIs? No problem!
But what about APIs with intricate application logic, you ask? SuperAPI's got it covered. Import your functions into the configuration file, and voila! Your existing code runs seamlessly without the need for additional coding efforts. SuperAPI's adaptability is not limited; it thrives on making your life easier.
Reactive clients, anyone?
Hold on tight; it gets better. SuperAPI introduces a paradigm shift with its POP locations. Now, your clients can effortlessly subscribe to API changes. As soon as a modification occurs, SuperAPI springs into action, instantly pushing updates to your subscribed clients. Reactivity at its finest!
Beyond the CDN dilemma
How does SuperAPI differ from traditional Content Delivery Networks (CDNs)? Unlike CDNs, built for static content with low update frequency, SuperAPI is tailor-made for dynamic application APIs that evolve rapidly. Most importantly, it relieves developers of the burden of manual cache invalidation mechanisms, ensuring that API changes are reflected promptly.
In essence, SuperAPI is not just a gateway; it's the game-changer you didn't know you needed. It's the silent force behind blazing-fast APIs, rendering latency a distant memory. As the world of applications races forward, SuperAPI stands as a testament to innovation that doesn't just keep up; it propels the industry into a future where API performance is not just optimized—it's turbocharged.
Let SuperAPI be the fuel that powers your API-driven journey, making every interaction swift, seamless, and superbly responsive.
