Question

Do Digital Ocean App Specifications support wildcards for URL rewrites and redirects?

Hi Digital Ocean Community,

I host a static personal website on Digital Ocean App Platform. I want every request that excludes the .html extension to redirect to the .html page. Currently I have to write each of these rules individually per page, as shown below.

For example: tobkin.us/contact ->302-> tobkin.us/contact.html

Is there any way I can use a wildcard instead to condense this App Specification? Or even better, rewrite all *.html pages to have no extension so there is no redirect?

ingress:
  rules:
  - component:
      name: tobkin-static-html
    match:
      path:
        prefix: /
  - match:
      path:
        prefix: /index
    redirect:
      redirect_code: 301
      uri: /index.html
  - match:
      path:
        prefix: /resume
    redirect:
      redirect_code: 301
      uri: /resume.html
  - match:
      path:
        prefix: /contact
    redirect:
      redirect_code: 301
      uri: /contact.html
  - match:
      path:
        prefix: /office-hours
    redirect:
      redirect_code: 301
      uri: /office-hours.html
