Potential HTTP/2 Support

Hi everyone,

Just out of curiosity, has the team considered adding HTTP/2 support to OpenLMIS? Our target browsers (Chrome and FireFox) have supported it for a while, and it may make more efficient use of the weak networks over which we sometimes have to operate.

Kind regards,
Ben

Yes, though AFAIK AWS’ ELB (not ALB) doesn’t support HTTP/2, and that’s still part of our recommended deployment topology. If we could remove/transition-to-alb that while still making the recommended deployment topology easy to administer, then it’d be easy to have - though I’m not suspecting that for our use-case we’ll see huge gains.

In PCMT we’ve been working with Traefik to get around some of the things an ELB did for OpenLMIS. It’d be a bit duplicative to OpenLMIS’ Nginx service, however so far (early) it’s very easy to work with.

Thank you @joshzamor. That makes sense, and Traefik looks interesting!

Kind regards,
Ben
