  • Random and fixed routes with Apache APISIX
    3 projects | dev.to | 13 Jun 2024
    My ideas for blog posts inevitably start to dry up after over two years at Apache APISIX. Hence, I did some triage on the APISIX repo. I stumbled upon this one question:
  • Ask HN: Are there any open source forks of nomad smd consul?

    > I think etcd is basically a k8s only project now

    I hate etcd with the best of them, but etcd is used in a lot more places than just kubernetes:




    https://github.com/purpleidea/mgmt/tree/0.0.26/etcd (this one shows up on HN quite a bit)


    It's actually one of the major reasons I wouldn't touch those projects

  • Multi-layer Caching in API Gateway Tackles High Traffic Challenges
    1 project | dev.to | 26 Jan 2024
    Through this intelligent caching mechanism, APISIX efficiently utilizes system resources when handling a large volume of requests, thereby improving overall system performance and stability. APISIX, with its advanced LRU cache, provides developers with a reliable and efficient API gateway solution, facilitating smooth communication with external services.
  • Apache APISIX plugin priority, a leaky abstraction?
    2 projects | dev.to | 14 Dec 2023
    The main issue is that priority is documented in the config-default.yaml file, while the phase is buried in the code. Worse, some plugins run across different phases. For example, let's check the proxy proxy-rewrite plugin and, more precisely, the functions defined there:

  • 10 Reasons for Choosing API7
    4 projects | dev.to | 20 Nov 2023
    API7 takes Apache APISIX as its robust foundation, which is open-source and has an active community with over 600 contributors all over the world. The nature of open source allows users to examine the source code, which promotes transparency. This transparency helps users understand how APISIX works, verify its security, and identify and fix any potential vulnerabilities or bugs.
  • How is Apache APISIX Fast?

    But the best part is that the libraries mentioned here and Apache APISIX are entirely open source, meaning you can look under the hood and modify things yourself.

  • Custom Plugin Development For APISIX With Lua And ChatGPT

    4. Plugin definition: It is a really important part of plugin implementation that we define as a table with properties for the version, priority, name, and schema. The name and schema are the plugin's name and schema defined earlier. The version and priority are used by APISIX to manage the plugin. The version typically refers to the version that is currently in use like API versioning. If you publish and update your plugin logic, it is going to be 1.1 (You can set any version you wish). But you need to be very careful in choosing priority. The priority field defines in which order and phase your plugin should be executed. For example, the 'ip-restriction' plugin, with a priority of 3000, will be executed before the 'example-plugin', which has a priority of 0. This is due to the higher priority value of the 'ip-restriction' plugin. If you're developing your own plugin, make sure that you followed the order of plugins not to mess up the order of existing plugins. You can check the order of existing plugins in the config-default.yaml file and open the Apache APISIX Plugin Development Guide to determine.
