Generic Reverse Proxy in Go. Useful to nest multiple services under supervisor and friends


go get

Practical Example

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
