Nginx as an API proxy At 3scale we are big fans nginx. Few weeks ago we launched an open-source API proxy which is basically nginx with a set of custom lua scripts that allow for simple configuration of your API proxy. How easy? Check the how-to. It can’t get easier than that. There are many reasons why you should use nginx as your API proxy. One is because it is open-source. Nginx has a massive install base, it has a very strong community behind it and performance-wise is second to none. For us it is a no-brainer that if open-source solutions exist it is [insert your favorite word here] to rely on proprietary software that claims to do the same.
