Traefik is a modern HTTP reverse proxy and load balancer that makes deploying microservices easy.


This container itself is quite simple but note that lots of customization will be needed for the client apps you will be routing with Traefik. You'll need to use DockSTARTer overrides, more specifically editing docker-compose.override.yml to add labels, etc, to your client apps to configure Traefik routing.


You can configure Traefik itself with a traefik.yml file. You should create this at ${DOCKERCONFDIR}/traefik which is by default volume mapped to /etc/traefik inside the container.
