Just a small experiment in replicating the API gateway pattern for microservices.

Manifest Format

// service name, used in logging and metrics
service printerfacts

// https backend to reverse proxy to

// healthcheck endpoint. This should return 2xx.

// twirp blocks establish HTTP routes for both JSON and Protobuf twirp clients.
twirp (
  // use assumptions for this service based on the twirp version in question.
  require v5

  // public <package> <service> <method>
  // This defines a public API call. This also will require the application/json
  // or application/protobuf Accept and Content-Type header with a POST verb
  // where the path is built from the version assumptions + the twirp metadata.
  public us.xeserv.api Printerfacts Fact
  
  // private <scope> <package> <service> <method>
  // This defines a private API call scoped to users with the given permission
  // for this service. This also will require the application/json or 
  // application/protobuf Accept and Content-Type header with a POST verb where 
  // the path is built from the version assumptions + the twirp metadata.

// http blocks establish arbitrary http routes. For sanity and hygene reasons,
// all services will have their routes prefixed by the service name. In this
// example, the resulting routes on the API gateway would be `/ponyapi/all`, 
// etc.
