Lazy caching for instant response

To maximise responsiveness and minimise loading on, Magic Data Developer implements a lazy caching strategy for integrating marketplace data. This cache is independent of your site cache and is only refreshed when Magic Data Developer's cache management jobs are run.

See the documentation and have a look at my support pages for some examples of what you can do.


To use Magic Data Developer, as a minimum you will also need Magic Data and the free addons Magic Data Templates and Magic Data Symbols.

From version 1.5 this addon is compatible with php7. To update a site to php7 you will need to make core updates (at time of writing only on github and not released). You will also need to ensure that other addon packages are php7 compatible.
