Add Content-Type image/avif

Hello Guys,

For some reasons, I need to open the AVIF file directly instead of referencing it on HTML.

But Caddy does not seem to have the Content-Type of AVIF

I try to add it manually:

header /path/to/file.avif {
	Content-Type "image/avif"

It works, but I don’t want the path. Is there a wildcard method?


You can do it with a path matcher like this:

@avif path *.avif
header @avif Content-Type "image/avif"

For what it’s worth, the content types are provided by your system’s mime package (which the Go stdlib just references). You could look into whether it has it or not.

Looks like it was added to xdg-mime only a year ago, so it might not have landed on your system yet :man_shrugging: but just making a wild guess as to what mime implementation you have.

Thank you!
I checked the Ubuntu shared-mime-info package information and it is indeed out of date.
