Why LSCache Plugins are Better Than Rewrite Rules

Rewrite Rules can be used to configure LSCache, but if there is a plugin available for your web application, we strongly recommend you use the plugin.


Here's the short answer:

With rewrite rules, there is no ability to purge the cache, and so you can only cache items for a very short time, otherwise you run a great risk of serving stale content. Plugins have more cache-management controls, including the ability to purge the cache at will.

The long answer will require some more writing. It's coming soon.
