ASP.NET Monsters #92: Saving CPU Cycles with Static Resource Hashes
In today's episode, Monster Dave prototypes an approach to generating static resource URLs to potentially improve the performance of an ASP.NET Core application. Borrowing ideas from a recent blog post by the Facebook engineering team.
First, we create a tag helper to generate static resource URLs based on a hash of the file's contents. Next, we write some custom middleware to rewrite those new URLs to the actual file and to always return 304 not-modified for all conditional requests.
