APItools Middleware Repository Build Status

This is a collection of Middleware that you can use in APItools Traffic Monitors. Either On Premise or Cloud.

You can use almost all of Lua Standard Library with some exceptions.

Creating Middleware

We provide simple rake task to get started with middleware template. You just have to have Ruby, install dependencies, run rake middleware and fill out the questions.

rake middleware

Testing Middleware

When you generate a middleware by rake middleware a spec will be created for you. Then you can run all the tests by running make.

Test Dependencies

To run all the tests you need: lua (5.1) (or luajit) with luarocks. Then you can install dependencies via make dependencies.

If you can't get it installed on your machine, you can use vagrant. Run make vagrant to automatically execute all tests in vagrant machine.


If you have homebrew, you can just install luarocks lika brew install luarocks --with-luajit and run make dependencies.
