Note: this module is not distributed with the Nginx source. Installation instructions can be found below.

Table of Contents

Description

nginx_substitutions_filter is a filter module which can do both regular expression and fixed string substitutions on response bodies. This module is quite different from the Nginx's native Substitution Module. It scans the output chains buffer and matches string line by line, just like Apache's mod_substitute.

Example

<geshi lang="nginx"> location / { subs_filter_types text/html text/css text/xml; subs_filter st(\d*).example.com $1.example.com ir; subs_filter a.example.com s.example.com; subs_filter http://$host https://$host; } </geshi>

Directives

subs_filter_types

syntax: subs_filter_types mime-type [mime-types]

default: subs_filter_types text/html

context: http, server, location

subs_filter_types is used to specify which content types should be checked for subs_filter, in addition to *text/html*. The default is only text/html.

This module just works with plain text. If the response is compressed, it can't uncompress the response and will ignore this response. This module can be compatible with gzip filter module. But it will not work with proxy compressed response. You can disable the compressed response like this:

proxy_set_header Accept-Encoding "";

subs_filter

syntax: subs_filter source_str destination_str [gior]

default: none

context: http, server, location

subs_filter allows replacing source string(regular expression or fixed) in the nginx response with destination string. The variables in matching text is only avaiable under fixed string mode, which means the matching text could not contain variables if it is a regular expression. Substitution text may contain variables. More than one substitution rules per location is supported. The meaning of the third flags are:

  • g(default): Replace all the match strings.
  • i: Perform a case-insensitive match.
  • o: Just replace the first one.
  • r: The pattern is treated as a regular expression, default is fixed string.

subs_filter_bypass

syntax: subs_filter_bypass $variable1 ...

default: none

context: http, server, location

You can sepcify several variables with this directive. If at least one of the variable is not empty and is not equal to '0', this substitution filter will be disabled.

Installation

To install, get the source with subversion:

git clone git://github.com/yaoweibin/ngx_http_substitutions_filter_module.git

and then compile nginx with the following option:

./configure --add-module=/path/to/ngx_http_substitutions_filter_module

Known issue

  • Can't substitute the response header.
