Packaging Caddy


(Sayem Chowdhury) #122

About that… can’t make time to post or update readme. PR is welcome :slight_smile:


(Federico Bruni) #123

Thanks Carl! I guess you’ll have to update (or remove) the Copr project?
I see that the spec is now here.

Dears, what about that?!

On the possibility of inserting all the available plugins/services in the compilation of the Caddy in Homebrew and Linuxbrew: => Zhiming Wang’s notes are very pertinent.


(Matthew Fay) #125

Generally speaking, adding an “all-plugins” version of Caddy is not advisable. I agree with zmwangx’s comment in the linked Github thread. If you or someone else were willing to commit not only to supporting it, but verifying the trustworthiness of the suite of plugins, maybe.


(Sayem Chowdhury) #126

This is possible on Caddy-X. But as zmwangx said, it’s not recommended. You could open a issue on Caddy-X and I will see what I can do!


(Carl George) #127

Thanks for the reminder, it’s removed now.

BTW caddy is already packaged for some distros/systems already:

  • Alpine Linux
  • Chocolatey (Windows)
  • EPEL 7
  • Fedora
  • FreeBSD
  • Gentoo
  • Homebrew (MacOS)

BTW anyone: You want to install Caddy from your distro, but still want to disable (or enable) telemetry? Not possible., at least when the Caddy devs do not decide otherwise.

They insist on a compile time configuration. So if you only have access to run-time stuff or don’t want to mess with binaries, without automatic upgrades, you have no way of disabling sending data to Caddy from your own web server.
