Edge Functions Examples / Rewrite with Edge Functions

Rewrite with Edge Functions

You can rewrite requests on one URL to resources available on another URL using an Edge Function.

import type { Context } from "netlify:edge";

export default async (request: Request, context: Context) => {
  return context.rewrite("/something-to-serve-with-a-rewrite");

Pro tip!

You can combine geolocation data with URL rewrites to serve different URLs powering internationalized content.

What are Edge Functions?

Using JavaScript and TypeScript, Netlify Edge Functions give you the power to modify network requests to localize content, serve relevant ads, authenticate visitors, A/B test content, and much more! And this all happens at the Edge — directly from the worldwide location closest to each user.

To use Edge Functions on Netlify, add JavaScript or TypeScript files to an edge-functions directory in your project, and add [[edge_functions]] entries to your netlify.toml file.

Learn more in the docs.
