Varnish - Web Application Accelerator.

  •        2799

Varnish Cache is a web application accelerator also known as a caching HTTP reverse proxy. You install it in front of any server that speaks HTTP and configure it to cache the contents. Varnish Cache is really, really fast. It typically speeds up delivery with a factor of 300 - 1000x, depending on your architecture.

Skipper is an HTTP router and reverse proxy for service composition. It's designed to handle >100k HTTP route definitions with detailed lookup conditions, and flexible augmentation of the request flow with filters. It can be used out of the box or extended with custom lookup, filter logic and configuration sources.Skipper provides a default executable command with a few built-in filters. However, its primary use case is to be extended with custom filters, predicates or data sources. Go here for additional documentation.

nginx-jwt - Lua script for Nginx that performs reverse proxy auth using JWT's


nginx-jwt is a Lua script for the Nginx server (running the HttpLuaModule) that will allow you to use Nginx as a reverse proxy in front of your existing set of HTTP services and secure them (authentication/authorization) using a trusted JSON Web Token (JWT) in the Authorization request header, having to make little or no changes to the backing services themselves.IMPORTANT: nginx-jwt is a Lua script that is designed to run on Nginx servers that have the HttpLuaModule installed. But ultimately its dependencies require components available in the OpenResty distribution of Nginx. Therefore, it is recommended that you use OpenResty as your Nginx server, and these instructions make that assumption.

LittleProxy - High Performance HTTP Proxy


LittleProxy is a high performance HTTP proxy written in Java atop Trustin Lee's excellent Netty event-based networking library. It's quite stable, performs well, and is easy to integrate into your projects. A proxy server like LittleProxy contains always a web server, too. If you get an URI without scheme, host and port in originalRequest it's a direct request to your proxy. You can return a HttpFilters implementation which answers responses with HTML content.

jwtproxy - An HTTP-Proxy that adds AuthN through JWTs


The JWT proxy is intended to be used as a complementary service for authenticating, and possibly authorizing requests made between services. There is a forward proxy component, which can be configured to sign outgoing requests to another service, and a reverse proxy component, which can be used to authenticate incoming requests from another service.The JWT forward proxy is used to sign outgoing requests with a JWT using a private key.

gziphandler - Golang middleware to gzip HTTP responses


This is a tiny Go package which wraps HTTP handlers to transparently gzip the response body, for clients which support it. Although it's usually simpler to leave that to a reverse proxy (like nginx or Varnish), this package is useful when that's undesirable.The docs can be found at godoc.org, as usual.

redbird - A modern reverse proxy for node


Handling dynamic virtual hosts, load balancing, proxying web sockets and SSL encryption should be easy and robust.With redbird you get a complete library to build dynamic reverse proxies with the speed and robustness of http-proxy.

docker_auth - Authentication server for Docker Registry 2


The original Docker Registry server (v1) did not provide any support for authentication or authorization. Access control had to be performed externally, typically by deploying Nginx in the reverse proxy mode with Basic or other type of authentication. While performing simple user authentication is pretty straightforward, performing more fine-grained access control was cumbersome. Docker Registry 2.0 introduced a new, token-based authentication and authorization protocol, but the server to generate them was not released. Thus, most guides found on the internet still describe a set up with a reverse proxy performing access control.

ngrok - Introspected tunnels to localhost


ngrok is a reverse proxy that creates a secure tunnel between from a public endpoint to a locally running web service. ngrok captures and analyzes all traffic over the tunnel for later inspection and replay. You can give this URL to anyone to allow them to try out a web site you're developing without doing any deployment.
