This is a Server based on Golang, which allows you to serve WebP images on the fly. It will convert jpg,jpeg,png files by default, this can be customized by editing the config.json..

e.g When you visit https://a.com/1.jpg´╝îit will serve as image/webp without changing the URL.

For Safari and Opera users, the original image will be used.

Compare to n0vad3v/webp_server
