APISIX is a cloud-native microservices API gateway, delivering the ultimate performance, security, open source and scalable platform for all your APIs and microservices.
APISIX is based on OpenResty and etcd. Compared with traditional API gateways, APISIX has dynamic routing and plug-in hot loading, which is especially suitable for API management under micro-service system.
If you are building a website, mobile device or IoT (Internet of Things) application, you may need to use an API gateway to handle interface traffic.
APISIX is a cloud-based microservices API gateway that handles traditional north-south traffic and handles east-west traffic between services.
APISIX provides dynamic load balancing, authentication, rate limiting, and other plugins through plugin mechanisms, and supports plugins you develop yourself.

APISIX Installed and tested in the following systems:
You now have two ways to install APISIX: if you are using CentOS 7, it is recommended to use RPM, other systems please use Luarocks.
We will add support for Docker and more OS shortly.
sudo yum install yum-utils sudo yum-config-manager --add-repo https://openresty.org/package/centos/openresty.repo sudo yum install -y openresty etcd sudo service etcd start sudo yum install -y https://github.com/iresty/apisix/releases/download/v0.6/apisix-0.6-0.el7.noarch.rpm
You can try APISIX with the Quickstart now.
luarocks install --lua-dir=/usr/local/openresty/luajit apisix
If you got some error like
unknow flag --lua-dir, this is because
luarocks version is too low.
We need to remove option
lua-dir and run again:
luarocks install apisix.
If all goes well, you will see the message like this:
