Session vars


#1

Are session variables sent to the server with every request and back
to the browser with every render? Or only the latter? Or not even?
I ask because I’m trying to design my site to skimp on bandwidth.

Session variables are stored on the server and available to the app at
any point. They are not shuttled back and forth between the client
and server. They will help you to skimp on bandwidth and also to
avoid a bunch of data manipulation in order to have data across
requests.
