Cloudflare workers - where in the chain does it sit?


#1

Interesting blog post regarding Cloudflare workers, but where exactly does it operate in relation to other parts of Cloudflare that modify your site (apps, scrapeshield etc).

I can see an interesting use case where I could modify tags on my page to include a nonce=value tag and update my content security headers with this in order to fix problems I have with things like Cloudflare’s email obfuscation being insecure (from a CSP viewpoint)

Hi @saul,

It actually varies, but generally speaking it happens after security related features and before non-security related features.

Is there information about how Cloudflare workers affect site speed? Their code executes before each request, and therefore always add some lag.

But I couldn’t find any information about the time cost of Cloudflare workers in the Beta post nor elsewhere.
