V2: Pre-compressed Assets

I’ve been fussing with this a bit and am concluding that serving pre-compressed assets (for example, gzip via zopfli and brotli) isn’t something one shouldn’t be doing with Caddy 2 quite yet. Does that sound right?

I found threads on gzip and brotli, however in both cases I’m finding the solutions troublesome; Often the browsers want to download the content directly as though the content is application/octet-stream.

Yeah, it’s a known issue…

So it’s still a TODO. Happy to have discussion around a design spec!


Cool! I can’t say I have any opinions on it yet, but it’s nice to know it’s something you want to do right.

For whoever finds this in the future, this is now possible since v2.4.0, using the file_server directive’s precompressed option.
