Loadcat is an Nginx configurator that allows you to use Nginx as a load balancer. The project is inspired by the various Nginx load balancing tutorial articles available online and also the existence of Linode's load balancer service NodeBalancers. So far the tool covers some of HTTP and HTTPS load balancing features, such as SSL termination, adding servers on the fly, marking them as unavailable or backup as necessary, and setting their weights to distribute load fairly. Loadcat parses a TOML encoded configuration file. In case one is not found, Loadcat will create one with same sane defaults. The location of the configuration file can be specified with the -config flag.
