kathisto (greek for render) is a lightweight docker base image that performs full server-side rendering using PhantomJS to serve cached, pre-rendered pages of your Angular2/4/React web-apps to search engine bots/crawlers. It also supports auto-recaching of all pages at hour intervals.
This project was developed after I came to the realization that bots and crawlers we're not indexing anything other than the head and un-rendered body of my Angular applications.
FROM entrik/kathisto:latest ADD dist/ /dist/
docker build myapp docker run --name myapp_container -p 80:80 myapp
docker build myapp docker run --name myapp_container -p 80:80 -p 443:443 -e CERT_FILE=/certs/domain.crt -e KEY_FILE=/certs/domain.key myapp
Due to the fact that PhantomJS seems to take slightly longer than headless chrome to render full pages, I'd like to implement headless chrome at some point.
