Does anyone know of an Interface that can provide/manage text configuration snippets for nginx

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:

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.

Cheers,

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.
