  1. This is amazing and so valuable. Been looking for something like this to properly setup my headers. Thanks for the write up.

  2. Hi Team,

    I have added below code for caching but it’s not working, please suggest.

    location ~* \.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|ico|cur|gz|svg|svgz|mp4|ogg|ogv|webm|htc|svg|woff|woff2|ttf)\$ {
    etag on;
    if_modified_since exact;
    expires 30d;
    #add_header Pragma “public”;
    add_header Cache-Control “public, no-transform”;


  3. For SPA html – is it enough to use meta tag headers to tell the browser not to cache? Are they reliable? Or I must setup response headers on the server?
