Cadmium is a fork of the Caddy HTTP server

I like caddy. I don't like telemetry. I especially don't like telemetry that stays enabled even if you pass the “disable telemetry” option.

Rather than sticking with 0.10 for the rest of my life, I need to build my own binaries, perhaps with a few small tweaks. That's what this project is for.

Another fork - called Wedge - exists, but was created to solve a different problem and hasn't been updated beyond 0.10 anyway.


The code in here isn't actually the whole caddy tree, forked. That's hard to maintain. Instead, it's a set of scripts - and possibly a few small patches - that can take a git reference, check out the Caddy source tree, and produce a binary from it. The binary is named cadmium, but it still reads a Caddyfile.

A hard-coded list of modules is compiled in. Open an issue or merge request if you'd like a module to be added to that list, I don't mind.


Caddy licenses downloaded binaries under some peculiar terms for binaries you download directly from them. I'm under no obligation to follow the same terms for cadmium, and indeed I don't. My terms are a lot more peculiar.

Individuals and social enterprises (or equivalent category elsewhere in the world) may use and redistribute the binaries under the same terms you received them.

In the event of a disagreement about whether a particular case matches these terms, the view of the Cadmium author prevails.

Note that social enterprises can - and frequently do - engage in commercial activities. It's OK to be selling things and using Cadmium, as long as you meet the above definition.

If you're not covered by the above, you should instead compile your own, or purchase a commercial license from the good folks at Caddy.

No license currently exists for the files in this repository, which means they are “All Rights Reserved”. As a courtesy, and in the spirit of openness, you are permitted to view them, including the necessary making of any transient copies required to do so. Using them to generate a binary, or derivative works in general, is prohibited.

Gosh, this licensing stuff is hard.
