Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
New FrankenPHP feature: package your PHP apps as standalone, self-executable binaries
5 projects | /r/PHP | 8 Dec 2023
Fun fact, the website is "dynamically static", it's just markdown files being processed and rendered by Caddy itself using https://caddyserver.com/docs/caddyfile/directives/templates. It's also how the https://caddyserver.com/ is built as well. Also includes syntax highlighting for Caddyfile config, using a library called Chroma; I wrote the Caddyfile lexer myself a while back! I think it's pretty neat that Caddy can syntax highlight its own code 😁
Has anyone had any success setting Authentik up behind Caddy for a reverse proxy?

Caddy for Certs and Istio for Reverse Proxy

A Guide To Self-Hosting Web Apps On Ubuntu Servers

Caddy is a web server like nginx. The biggest advandage of Caddy over nginx is, that it handles HTTPS automatically. You can find the script to install Caddy in their documentation.
A Blazingly Fast Open-Source Federation V1/V2 Gateway

This approach offers a level of customizability similar to what xcaddy does for the Caddy server, eliminating the complexities associated with writing Rhai scripts to customize a precompiled binary, as is the case with the Apollo Router.
HTTP/2 Zero-Day Vulnerability Results in Record-Breaking DDoS Attacks

Go is patching it soon: https://github.com/caddyserver/caddy/issues/5877#issuecommen...

The Bogus CVE Problem
4 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 21 Sep 2023
Unfortunately, the CVE database(s) are too noisy to be useful. It could benefit from higher standards and more thorough vetting. (Maybe take some lessons from academia.)
A "security researcher" once filed a CVE for a regular bug in Caddy , making claims that were totally provably false. It was assigned 7.5... the same as Heartbleed  -- yes, the one that leaked almost all the private encryption keys on the Internet back in 2014.
More recently I inadvertently discovered a 0-day RCE in acme.sh . (ACME clients are security-sensitive contexts since they typically deal with private keys and download signed credentials.) Anyway, it was assigned a CVSS 3.x score of * 9.8 *  -- I imagine that should be like "cyber-nuclear meltdown" territory, but no, this was actually benign as far as we can tell. Probably deserves more like a 5 or 6 or something.
Anyway, the whole system is broken, and I'm effectively ignoring CVEs now. But if someone tells me to patch my , I'll probably just do that.

https://caddyserver.com/ is implemented in Go, production-ready, and easy to setup with a one-liner (though personally I would use official binaries or compile from source rather than use the builds from a distro package manager)8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Sep 2023
It’s had an Apache-2.0 license for at least the last 4 years: https://github.com/caddyserver/caddy/blob/master/LICENSE
