With the Caddy v2 rewrite, is there any chance that auto-update will be added as a feature?
This Github issue beginning in 2016 suggests no: https://github.com/caddyserver/caddy/issues/576
While this thread from 2017 suggests it is planned to be implemented someday: Auto-updating Caddy
I’ll be honest, I don’t actually need auto-update, all I really need is an Ubuntu apt repository that isn’t woefully outdated, but that may also be a pipe dream. I have not figured out a better way to update Caddy v2 on a production server than to manually download the binary from Github every time I see there is a new version. (Homebrew for Linux or Snaps probably won’t cut it.)
Regardless, auto-update would be a really cool feature that sets Caddy apart from other web servers, and I wouldn’t mind seeing it.
