Nginx for API and Webapp
View Readme
So you want to build a HTML Webapp and then query your JSON Api. To avoid cross domain calls use NGINX to proxy only certain requests to the API. In my case I use the Accept: header from the HTTP request to specify return data format. If that format is application/json send it to the api, otherwise try to serve the static html.
