Flightpath has been deprecated since the release of Ingress Gateway in Consul v1.8.0.
This repository is now in read only mode and will not accept community contributions.
Flightpath is an Envoy Control Plane that integrates with Consul Connect and provides L7 routing at edge.
The need for Flightpath emerged from desperately wanting to deploy Consul Connect to production and frustration of not being able to route public traffic to a connect enabled service.
Getting started with Flightpath is unfortunately not a one command experience. Flightpath itself is not capable of handling traffic or proxying requests. It provides a simple gRPC server for Envoy xDS API and serves configuration to Envoy. Traffic handling and routing is all performed by Envoy.
To watch Flightpath in action you will need a basic apparatus that is easy to setup on your local machine. Please see the Documentation on how to setup a local test environment and go on a test flight.
