Have Netlify serve out dotfiles


Netlify currently does not serve out dotfiles, for some reason.

A workaround is instead of saving dotfiles directly, save them as non-dotfiles, and use _redirects to have request paths with dotfiles to serve out the non-dotfiles.

This is especially useful for applications that need to access a .well-known folder.

So, let's say you had a folder that reads /v1/.well-known. Save it instead as /v1/well-known (note: the dot right before `well-known is missing).

Then, in your _redirects file, you'd have the following line:

/v1/.well-known/* /v1/well-known/:splat 200!
