Generic Reverse Proxy in Go. Useful to nest multiple services under supervisor and friends
go get bitbucket.org/aldrinleal/revproxy/revproxy
Suppose you’ve want to nest three different services, so you want to reverse-proxy:
- /app to localhost:8001
- /api to localhost:8002
- /static to localhost:8003
A sample line would be:
$ revproxy [-port <port>] /app:8001 /api:8002 /static:8003
It was created with AWS Elastic Beanstalk in mind, since it only allows a single EXPOSE port, instead of dealing with the need to install nginx/manage.
Things that revproxy (or its author) doesn’t want to do:
- Log your requests (however, we’d like to add some tracing and instrumentation into it)
- Validate data in general
Its more like a kludge. However, further versions are likely to include support for etcd as well as WebSockets.
A Big thank you goes to azer/boxcars, which gave me the impetus to try my own stab at it
