composer require fasterize/magento2

Optional you can download the latest version here and install the decompressed code in your projects directory under app/code/Fasterize/Magento2.

Magento Marketplace

The Magento Marketplace is the recommended and easiest way to install the extension, however, this version might be a version or two behind the Composer version while the Magento Marketplace Quality Assurance Team approves the update. Please note that Magento is now preferring installation via Composer


After the installement of the module source code, the module must be enabled by the Magento® 2 CLI.

bin/magento module:enable Fasterize_Magento2

System Upgrade

After enabling the module, the Magento® 2 system must be upgraded.

If the system mode is set to production, run the compile command first. This is not necessary for the developer mode.

To upgrade the system, the upgrade command must be run.

Clear Cache

At last, the Magento® 2 should be cleared by running the flush command.

bin/magento cache:flush
