- Cloudinary • Image and Video Upload, Storage, Optimization and CDN 🛠️
- better to store images locally in repo and use Cloudinary’s fetch API to proxy them and serve them from Cloudinary? easier than manually uploading those images to Cloudinary?
- or simpler to just have the images in Cloudinary with all their metadata so the source of truth is Cloudinary and there’s no duplication?
- idea for proxying them comes from Colby Fayock’s Netlify plugin
- Dynamic Folders | Cloudinary
- Why? To get access to more efficient Admin API endpoints, especially (Get resources by asset folder](https://cloudinary.com/documentation/dynamic_folders#new_admin_api_endpoints), which is only available when dynamic folders mode is enabled. That endpoint will help me avoid hitting the 500 requests per hour rate limit on the Admin API as I currently do when sending a separate request for each image on my site at build time.
