After Dark makes JIT requests for some external assets to cut down on resource consumption and increase page performance.

Take the Code Highlighter stylesheet for example:

{{< highlight css >}} {{< include “themes/after-dark/static/css/syntax.css” >}} {{< /highlight >}}

The stylesheet code shown above is itself highlighted using a JIT request. Confirm by viewing the network requests for this page and observe the fetch request for the syntax.css file as depicted here:

jit-requests (document)
├── lazysizes.min.js (fetch)
├── syntax.css (fetch)

Using Fetch Injection a JIT request is issued to begin downloading the highlighter stylesheet on-the-fly in parallel with other resources and the base layout takes care to ensure the CSS is only requested on pages that need it.

Create your own JIT requests using Custom Layout and Fetch Injection.
