Caddyfile - Example
View Caddyfile
config_server "https://etcd.local:2379"
service users {
endpoint: "/users",
proxy: "{{services.users.ip}}:{{services.users.port}}"
# In this example 'services.users' would be a directory with a json key for every user service container / application.
# Using this we could template the proxy and any other information in the services block, and it would just work with caddy.

Using runit as a supervisor for Caddy


A supervisor's main task, is to start a specified process (in a specified environment), watch it running, and do something when it ends - usually based on the exit code.


From my experience, the environment setup can be a complex task (consult some config management for the required ports, actualize the config file from the central config management...), and this is where the most featureful supervisor (systemd, AFAIK) falls short:

  • it can setup & manage the listening sockets, and pass it to your app (if it can accept it - not hard, just have to be ready for it),

The old automation program that produced Caddy builds for various platforms and bundled them into archives for distribution
View automate.go
// This program was used to build Caddy up to (but not including) v0.10.
// On April 20, 2017, it was replaced by a new releaser script that
// integrates with the autonomous build server. It bundles assets into
// an archive format that best fits the target OS. It could use `go build`
// to compile, but the way I configured it was to run the build.bash
// script that ensured the Caddy binary had proper version information
// embedded.
// I'm posting this here because it is no longer available in the Caddy
// repository and maybe you will find it useful for your own (simple?)

On Twitter the other day, I was lamenting the state of OCSP stapling support on Linux servers, and got asked by several people to write-up what I think the requirements are for OCSP stapling support.

  1. Support for keeping a long-lived (disk) cache of OCSP responses.

    This should be fairly simple. Any restarting of the service shouldn't blow away previous responses that were obtained. This doesn't need to be disk, just stable - and disk is an easy stable storage for most server
