Otoroshi is a layer of lightweight api management on top of a modern http reverse proxy written in Scala and developped by the MAIF OSS team that can handle all the calls to and between your microservices without service locator and let you change configuration dynamicaly at runtime.
The Otoroshi is a large hairy monster that tends to lurk on the top of the torii gate in front of Shinto shrines. It’s a hostile creature, but also said to be the guardian of the shrine and is said to leap down from the top of the gate to devour those who approach the shrine for only self-serving purposes.
You can install and run Otoroshi with this little bash snippet
curl -L -o otoroshi.jar 'https://dl.bintray.com/maif/binaries/otoroshi.jar/1.4.2/otoroshi.jar' # run the following line if you want to use the admin UI in your browser sudo echo "127.0.0.1 otoroshi-api.foo.bar otoroshi.foo.bar otoroshi-admin-internal-api.foo.bar" >> /etc/hosts # Java 8 java -jar otoroshi.jar # Java 9 and 10 java --add-modules java.xml.bind -jar otoroshi.jar
or using docker
docker run -p "8080:8080" maif/otoroshi:1.4.2
