Docker Static Server
Static file server designed for serving files not websites
Sometimes, you just need a simple container to host some static files. Whether that be files for download, images to show, or a directory of files.
# Why not just use Nginx?
If you’re not really bothered, the default
nginx container will work just fine for you, however this container has a few modifications which make it more suited to serving static files:
- Use environment variables for customization
- Healthcheck endpoint
- GZIP all files
X-Forwarded-Forheader when getting client IP
Previously I had created
tstatic to do this, but Nginx is far better as a server than node. The less node in my stack, the better!
