Prefetch for Fresh

Fresh plugin for prefetching pages powered by Google’s quicklink.

According to Google’s web development guidelines, prefetching leads to faster load times, resulting in higher conversion rates and better user experiences. Prefetching can be implemented using the link tag.


To use this plugin, just add to your fresh config:

import prefetchPlugin, { Options } from ''

const options: Options = {
  throttle: 4 // 4 concurrent requests
  // ...

await start(manifest, {
  plugins: [

Start your fresh server, access your page. All anchor tags containing a relative href attribute should be prefetched. To make sure it’s working, open the Chrome DevTools Network tab and make sure the pages are being prefeetched.

All serializable options accepted by quicklink are also accepted by this plugin.
