Spacess, CDN and CORS settings

Hey everyone :)

I’m still playing around using spaces for my web development and so far I really dig it.

However I’m facing an issue about using the right CORS setting, I’m not sure if it on DO space I need to set this or on my own server.

I’ve added 2 images, one with the CORS settng on DO and the next is the error.

Issue is that cross site access not allowed source We had a similar issue. Despite the fact that we loaded font awesome fonts from Droplet and not Spaces we got this error. That was due to relative link trying to load font from Spaces CDN. When we did set CORS at Spaces to allow access origin * we got a 404. We did however not want to use allow access origin all so we fixed the url and loaded from Droplet.

If you can set origin to specific location at Spaces CORS settings and do this for at least GET (PUT and POST probably not needed) that should get things working again. At least when fonts are on Spaces. And setting specific source (your website) will make it specific enough and thereby not inherently insecure.
