Perhaps this is a noob question since I am not very familiar with front-end. Is it "client rendered" in GB? This is why I am asking: Does the client try to reach the backend/api directly from the browser? (Setting the
API_HOST
to
<http://localhost:3100>
never worked despite the fact this url was working from inside the container)

do you happen to know if the request is made from the browser directly to the api?

If you are self hosting
It is up to you if put a proxy or cdn in front of the api
Or server from a local cache

OK so in case I don't put anything and it is just the api, the browser will hit the api, right?
