    Kong ( | Gateway Senior Engineer | REMOTE Europe | Full-time

    The Kong Gateway is an API Management solution, which serves as a foundation for many other solutions by the company. The business model is open-core: an Open Source solution exists (, and there's an Enterprise version with more features and dedicated support.

    The tech stack is a modified Openresty with of Lua code on top. The ideal candidate would be someone who is already familiar with Kong. Alternatively, if you are familiar with Openresty or other API management solution, we also would love to talk with you.

    I am personally interested in finding people to join me in the European Gateway Team. The role involves adding features, fixing bugs, and collaborating with other teams. Here's that position:

    We have many projects and many teams all around the world (current headcount is ~450), using other technologies like Node in the Kong Manager or Go in the Koko project, and we are constantly looking for people. Please visit our careers page to find out more!

  • authelia

    The Single Sign-On Multi-Factor portal for web apps

    Project mention: Does this exist? | | 2022-05-15

    Check out Authelia. You can create SSO to access your containers and set up 2FA with it.

  • ingress-nginx

    NGINX Ingress Controller for Kubernetes

    Project mention: Nginx Modern Reference Architectures | | 2022-05-19

    If I'm not mistaken, the biggest user of openresty is the Kubernetes community-maintained nginx ingress controller [1].

    [1]: I took pains to say "community-maintained" because there's also an official nginx ingress controller from F5 (current corporate owner of nginx).

  • server-configs-nginx

    Nginx HTTP server boilerplate configs

    Project mention: NGINX treats | | 2021-07-05

    But don't worry, I got you. Check this out:

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • apisix

    The Cloud-Native API Gateway

    Project mention: Chopping the monolith - the demo | | 2022-05-23

    However, Reverse Proxies are rigid regarding configuration in general and route configuration in particular. For flexibility reasons, one may be inclined to use an API Gateway. For example, the Apache APISIX API Gateway allows changing route configuration on the fly via its REST API.

  • CapRover

    Scalable PaaS (automated Docker+nginx) - aka Heroku on Steroids

    Project mention: Ask HN: What should I use instead of Heroku? | | 2022-05-07

    I recommend Caprover. It's a simple container environment that hosts your services via sensible nginx configurations and Docker swarm, has a cli tool that can be utilized for CI purposes, and provides easy spin-up for common OSS web-apps.

    I utilize it to host many different PHP and Java apps.

  • Nginx Proxy Manager

    Docker container for managing Nginx proxy hosts with a simple, powerful interface

    Project mention: NGINX Proxy Manager | | 2022-05-23
  • ngxtop

    Real-time metrics for nginx server

    Project mention: Nginx Log Analysis Help | | 2022-01-20
  • v2ray-agent


    Project mention: ShadowsoclsR + V2Ray | | 2021-12-31

    Also, one other preferred thing, UUID instead of different ports. This is possible using this script, however, it is v2ray only and not stable enough for me. My plan is to use only 443 port.

  • ModSecurity

    ModSecurity is an open source, cross platform web application firewall (WAF) engine for Apache, IIS and Nginx that is developed by Trustwave's SpiderLabs. It has a robust event-based programming language which provides protection from a range of attacks against web applications and allows for HTTP traffic monitoring, logging and real-time analysis. With over 10,000 deployments world-wide, ModSecurity is the most widely deployed WAF in existence.

    Project mention: WordPress sites getting hacked ‘within seconds’ of TLS certificates being issued | | 2022-05-06

    Is anyone on HN doing WordPress administration? I recently 'inherited' a webshop built on WP/WooCommerce, and all the conflicting security advice in the WP space is making my head spin.

    There are a dozen competing 'security' plugins, with some saying 'you don't need any of them, WP is secure enough by default', and others saying 'you actually need ModSecurity [1] / Jeff Starr's nG firewall [2]'.

    The agency that (shoddily...) built the webshop installed Wordfence Free [3], so I've just kept that for now, though I feel it's kind of slow (but that might just be caused by the bottom-of-barrel performance of the shared webhost it's currently running on).




  • h5ai

    HTTP web server index for Apache httpd, lighttpd and nginx.

  • naxsi

    NAXSI is an open-source, high performance, low rules maintenance WAF for NGINX

    Project mention: HowTo: WAF with NAXSI for Plex | | 2022-01-05

    Ok, so whahaatt the fuckk is NAXSI? Well, NAXSI are a set of rules (aka MainRules) in the form of "does input match funky shit? blocckkked" for nginx. That's the gist of it. Nothing more to it. They're basically an industry standard and block 99% of funky shit.

  • devilbox

    A modern Docker LAMP stack and MEAN stack for local development

    Project mention: Creating docker environment for laravel project with Devilbox | | 2022-04-13
  • kubernetes-ingress

    Project mention: NGINX Ingress Controller v1.0.0 is released; it supports Kubernetes >= v1.19 including v1.22 | | 2021-08-26

    Well, let's give it a try:

  • flagger

  • arkade

  • ansible-collection-hardening

    This Ansible collection provides battle tested hardening for Linux, SSH, nginx, MySQL

    Project mention: How do you document your (whole) setup ? Looking for ideas. | | 2022-02-05

    To ensure SSH and other security related things are configured correctly, you can take a look at DevSec which helps you to apply proven security configuration principles. Also there is guides like "Secure Secure Shell" which can help you to better understand what you can do to increase the security of your servers (this one is from 2015 but many aspects are still relevant).

  • uwsgi-nginx-flask-docker

    Docker image with uWSGI and Nginx for Flask applications in Python running in a single container. Optionally with Alpine Linux.

    Project mention: Nginx/Uwsgi/Flask POST times out if body is too large | | 2022-03-28

    I'm using a dockerimage based on I am running a python app inside that accepts a POST, does some processing on the json body, and returns a simple json response back. A post like this:
