Did you know that Hitch is now available as a container image on the dockerhub? I'm asking because it's time to revisit an blog post of mine (4 years, time flies!) and to streamline things a bit. Nowadays containers are ubiquitous, so we can skip the basics, and thanks to the dockerhub images, we don't even need to write our own Dockerfile like we used to. Ain't that nice?
Our base will look a lot like the previous setup, but for this specific blog post, we are going to focus almost exclusively on how to integrate Hitch with Varnish. As you will see it is very straightforward thanks to upstream work, but it will be an opportunity to explore a few interesting notions along the way.
