Improving performance

Caching can be used to improve the performance of Community Visualizations.

Using devMode

Looker Studio caches community components by default. Setting devMode to true in the manifest bypasses the cache, allowing you to load the latest version of your code. If devMode is not set, it defaults to false, which means that Looker Studio will serve a cached version of your community component.

The cached version of the component automatically updates every 12 hours. To bypass the cache for a previously cached component, set devMode to true and allow 12 hours for the cached devMode preference to expire.
