    HTTP tunnel over Websocket

    In this post, we will focus on understanding the basic concepts and read prototypical and simpler one root-gg/wsp. wsp is developed by root-gg, which is a reverse HTTP proxy over WebSocket, whose aim is to securely make call to internal APIs from outside. It is difficult to use in production, but it is a good learning material to explain the design of reverse proxy over WebSocket.

    HTTP tunnel over Websocket (by hgsgtk)

    However, maintenance has stopped since the days of Go 1.6, so I'll proceed with this post based on code hgsgtk/wsp that I forked and modified for the Go situation in 2021 (Thank you root-gg).
