📦 plugin-client-redirects

Docusaurus Plugin to generate client-side redirects.

This plugin will write additional HTML pages to your static site that redirect the user to your existing Docusaurus pages with JavaScript.

production only

This plugin is always inactive in development and only active in production because it works on the build output.


It is better to use server-side redirects whenever possible.

Before using this plugin, you should look if your hosting provider doesn't offer this feature.


npm install --save @docusaurus/plugin-client-redirects
