Web server with automatic HTTPS.

Web server
Our review

What we like

Fast and easy to configure. Sets up HTTPS for public domains automatically using Let’s Encrypt. Can also be a reverse proxy. Configuration via a simple text file and/or via a JSON API so it can be managed programmatically. Has OpenTelemetry & Prometheus integrations. Open source and provided as a static binary for every platform (written in Go).

What we don't like

Requires a bit more work to get local HTTPS working, but that’s just due to how the custom root CA needs to be explicitly installed and trusted.
