Modules

Section offers a number of different modules that can be used in your edge deployment.

A module template is a combination of the module software (eg. Varnish Cache) and a set of default files to configure the module (eg. the default.vcl file).

If you want to experiment with different modules you can use our Developer Workflow to run your edge deployment on your local machine.
