Requestly Oct’22 Updates

Hey Requestlian 👋,

This is Sachin – Founder & CEO, Requestly. In this newsletter, I bring the latest Requestly developments in the month of Oct’22. If you are from a SaaS Company and your Javascript tag is installed on external websites, you might want to test your changes directly on the live customer website but if your customers have content-security-policy enabled then browser won’t load your tag. But here’s a good news you can use Requestly to bypass content-security-policy.

Here’s a quick tutorial to understand content-security-policy and how you can bypass it using Requestly Modify Headers Rule 🔥

Loading local JS files in live/production sites (Map Local) ⚡️

We recently published an article(& a youtube video) that helps you learn how you can load your local javascript files in live/production sites.

This technique is very helpful for web developers to:

  • Test local changes directly in production env and saves deployment time
  • Debug issues directly on production env (No need to setup the entire thing & reproduce issues)

Have a quick look at the video and Unlock your productivity:
