Description

Envoy is an L7 proxy and communication bus designed for large modern service oriented architectures. The project was born out of the belief that:

The network should be transparent to applications. When network and application problems do occur it should be easy to determine the source of the problem.

Programming language: C++
Tags: Web     Networking     Proxy Servers     Load Balancer     High-Availability

Contributing

Contributing to Envoy is fun and modern C++ is a lot less scary than you might think if you don't have prior experience. To get started:

  • [Contributing guide](CONTRIBUTING.md)
  • Beginner issues
  • [Build/test quick start using docker](ci#building-and-running-tests-as-a-developer)
  • [Developer guide](DEVELOPER.md)
  • Consider installing the Envoy development support toolchain, which helps automate parts of the development process, particularly those involving code review.
  • Please make sure that you let us know if you are working on an issue so we don't duplicate work!

Community Meeting
