hydra-plugin-http

Hydra plugin that enables traditional HTTP requests, routing and proxy capabilities to your micro-service infrastructure based on hydra.

v1.x+ uses fast-proxy (17791.10 reqs/sec) instead of http-proxy (408.97 reqs/sec)

Usage

Install Dependencies

npm i hydra-plugin-http --save

This plugin requires hydra version >1.2.10

Register the plugin

const hydra = require('hydra');
const HydraHttpPlugin = require('hydra-plugin-http').HydraHttpPlugin;
hydra.use(new HydraHttpPlugin());

// ...
await hydra.init({
    hydra: {
        'serviceName': 'your-hydra-service-name',
        'serviceDescription': 'Just another hydra service...',
        'serviceIP': '127.0.0.1',
        'servicePort': 0,
        'serviceType': 'native',
        'serviceVersion': '1.0.0',
        'redis': {
            'host': '127.0.0.1',
            'port': 6379,
            'db': 15
        },
        'plugins': {
            'hydra-plugin-http': { // the plugin can be configured in this point or using the constructor
                'lb': {},
                'proxy': {}
            }
        }
    }
});
await hydra.registerService();

Use it ;)

Making HTTP requests to internal/external micro-services using axios:

// GET request targeting an internal endpoint in the cluster
let res = await hydra.http.request('/v1/email/config');

// POST request targeting an internal endpoint in the cluster
res = await hydra.http.request.post('/v1/email/send', {
    to: 'account@email.com'
    // ...
});

// GET request targeting an external endpoint
res = await hydra.http.request('https://www.google.de/?q=hydra+microservices');

The request object is literally an instance of axios, with automatic URL resolving for internal micro-services. As simple as it can be ;)
Any URL with the schema /:servicename/:route or /:route, will be automatically translated into a valid URL in the micro-service cluster.

Capturing request events for pre/post processing

hydra.on('http-plugin-request', e => {
    // example of how to set the Authorization header on internal calls
    if ('request' == e.name && 'info' == e.name.level && e.data.targetHydraCluster) {
        e.data.headers['Authorization'] = `Bearer ${getJwtToken()}`;
    }
});
