As many of you might know, the plugins http.hugo, http.jekyll and http.filemanager were all based on a side-project of mine called File Browser. We’ve now been working on version 2.0 and we decided to remove Hugo and Jekyll support on this version. You can still run costum commands so basically it is the same, but different. Just requires a bit more configuration from the user.
The main changes on Caddy land are the deprecation of http.hugo, http.jekyll and http.filemanager in favour of http.filebrowser. But why? There are a few reasons:
- We wanted the name to match with the actual project.
- There are some breaking changes so I’m pretty sure most people will take a look at them if it’s a completely new plugin than if it remained with its previous name.
For you, that were using http.filemanager: if you have a database file with many users that you don’t want to create manually again, I recommend you to take a look at our CLI upgrade tool to upgrade de DB. If there are DB changes in the next versions, no manual action will be needed since we now store the database structure version on itself.
So, http.filebrowser is already out and here’s the docs: https://docs.filebrowser.xyz/installation#caddy!
Hope you enjoy it and file bugs and feature requests!
