Hi,im a newbie to Nginx. I'm in search of an Interface that can provide/manage "text configuration-snippets" for Nginx. As my server is intended to serve as a reverse proxy for multiple sites with dynamic fast-changing sub_filter configurations. can anyone point me to a starting point ? if such an interface doesn't exist and you had to develop one, how would you go upon doing it for best performance on Linux (software architecture/language) ? hope its clear and my question is in the right place. thanks

Tools like these, which don't explicitly include a GUI, are where much good work is being done these days: * http://community.opscode.com/cookbooks/nginx * https://github.com/puppetlabs/puppetlabs-nginx > if such an interface doesn't exist and you had to develop one, how would > you go upon doing it for best performance on Linux (software > architecture/language) ? Given that you say you're new to nginx, may I suggest you don't jump straight in to fill what you perceive as a tools gap. Perhaps you should get some experience running it in production so you know what would /actually/ be important to you, hence which tooling gaps need filling and which really don't.

Thanks for your answers Jonathan.very interesting. as to the second part of the question: I have a very specific need which has lead me to use Nginx: Im using it as a Reverse proxy, specifically for it's sub_filter capabilities, to manage text substitution at the output chain buffer level. Since Nginx sub_filter module derives its configuration from included *.conf files, and since my intention is to use plenty of them in a hierarchical structure (almost like xml files are used as a Data source) in large amounts changing them very often, I need to be able to comfortably generate/edit large amounts of these config text snippets, preferably from an interface which i intend to customize. this is currently and probably the tool gap i need filling as of this moment. hopes this makes my question more clear. I have already setup a server and found it suitable for my needs. I know these are deep waters and i might be over my head here, but what i'm looking for is a good starting point or tool that can get me going. if such don't exist, what programming language would be suitable to interface with the Nginx configuration snippets ? Thanks again.
