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
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
this is currently and probably the tool gap i need filling as of this
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 ?
