  • CompressedStaticFiles core middleware to send compressed static files to the browser without having to compress on demand, also has support for sending more advanced image formats when the browser indicates that i has support for it.

    By contrast, I've always found ASP.NET Core's middleware pipeline fairly easy to understand and highly flexible. Adding functionality like compressed static files or MSAL is as simple as installing a NuGet package and adding a few lines to the startup sequence.

    Microsoft's YARP is exactly this.

    Caddy is a great web server/reverse proxy, and very easy to configure. I prefer it over nginx for my personal stuff.
