  • Take a look at traefik, even if you don't use containers

    Sticky sessions are supported:, and yes it's pluggable so you could write your own LB policy. Very easy, just copy the code from Caddy's source to write your own plugin. Let us know if you need help.

    Also yes, Caddy does service discovery if you use, configuration via Docker labels. Or you can use dynamic upstreams (built-in) to use A/AAAA or SRV DNS records to load your list of upstreams.

    It handles the routing to multiple dockerized projects on one server, by scanning docker compose files for labels and automatically setting up the required caddy configuration.

    My go to is always this instead:

    Single label to a docker container and with correct DNS you’ll have an automatically managed certificate right away.

    I have had a great experience with using this:

    It combines caddy with docker-compose labels, making it super easy to spin up new projects that can immediately be exposed.

  • Caddy is the first and only web server to use HTTPS automatically and by default

    If you want a slightly heavier but more robust solution, caddy-docker-proxy[0] is a plugin that listens to the Docker socket and automatically updates the Caddy configuration based on Docker labels you add to containers.

    I.e. it makes Caddy act a bit more like Traefik. Most of the time, you'll just add the label `caddy.reverse_proxy={{upstreams http 8080}}` to your containers and the plugin will regenerate Caddy's configuration whenever the container is modified.

    I disagree, Caddy works great in Docker. See, and CDP is a project that autoconfigures Caddy from labels Regarding plugins, it's super simple to write a Dockerfile to add plugins, we ship a builder image variant that can be used to compile in any plugins you want.

    This way, Caddy will buffer the request and give 30 seconds for your new service to get online when you're deploying a new version.

    Ideally, during deployment of a new version the new version should go live and healthy before caddy starts using it (and kills the old container). I've looked at and but haven't had time to prioritize it yet.
