This NGINX module enables the brotli compression for Accept-Encoding:"br".

Brotli is a recent compression format developed by Google.

Use the "--add-module=" when configuring NGINX to enable the module.

Config options:

brotli on/off - enable the module. When brotli is enabled, it takes precendence over gzip if Accept-Encoding has both gzip and brotli. brotli_comp_level num - the compression level used 1-11 brotli_min_length num - the minimal size of the resource to be compressed. Brotli will compress only resources larger than this value. If it is smaller it will let gzip to compress.

Currently tested only on Linux.
