Technical questions

Can I expose only specific ports for a service?

By default, Preevy exposes all the public TCP ports of a service defined in the Compose file.

You can explicitly specify the ports to be exposed by defining a preevy.expose label on the service with the comma-separated list of port numbers to be exposed.

Labels can defined in the Compose file (compose.yaml or docker-compose.yaml) as follows:

build: ...
preevy.expose: 8000,8001
