I've been working on my manga GraphQL API recently and I've noticed that getting information on series/manga takes upwards of 4 seconds on every request. This is mostly attributed to having to scrape mangaupdates.com for the info.

However, I realized that it isn't a good experience for consumers and can lead to more request to mangaupdates. So I decided to cache any requests, so future requests will be faster and use less resources.

Adding redis reduce request times from 2-3 seconds to 77 ms upon requesting for the same data.

If you want to try out the changes:

My friend (Arjun) and I have been working on this app for the past summer. We know the stress that students have when trying to sign up for a popular course that just fills up. While there are other websites/apps that have a similar feature, we don’t prioritize paid users and have working notifications.

trackRU is a Rutgers course tracker/sniper app, which notifies the user whenever their tracked course is open. It send a push notification to the user, prompting them to open webreg.
