JotCache 5.2.0 with integration to asset processing extensions

Published: 08 October 2015

Integration with JCH Optimize, Rokbooster and Scriptmerge

JotCache 5.2.0 has new feature, which was longer time expected from site administrators, allowing close collaboration with Joomla js&css optimization extensions. Four most used extensions were selected : JCH Optimize, Rokbooster, JBetolo and Scriptmerge. Each of them is using different internal processing to combine and compress website assets - html, javascript, css files. After evaluation on test servers were choosen three of them - JCH Optimize, Rokbooster and Scriptmerge for possible integration with JotCache. JBetolo was rejected because of unstable operation with page cache.

The selection of which of named extension shall be linked to JotCache operation is simple action on JotCache plugin setup form (Cache Operation Modes tab) :

But before the integration with JotCache set page caching off for carefull testing of asset processing in selected extension. It is not simple & fast operation because you have usually many different parameters for setup and you need carefully check site pages for optimal settings. When you are satisfied with asset processing then you can enable JotCache operation. JotCache can accept different settings of asset extension but for Rokbooster is required to set parameter 'Scan Method' to value - Joomla Header Scan :

The integration is working properly when all combined files (js and/or css) are loaded correctly with cached page even in case when combined files are cleaned from its own cache.
