Powprox: Nginx proxy for Pow apps

  • Serve Pow apps with SSL and HTTP/2
  • Doesn't muck with your Pow setup at all. Only port 443 is proxied, not port 80.
  • No certificate mismatch errors in the browser
  • Automatically manage SSL certs
  • Optional per-app nginx config

Inspired by @paulnicholson's powssl for Stud which raised the bar from a simple wildcard SSL proxy to a smooth, browser-friendly setup.
