A pyramid based proxy application for proxying requests between plone instances.

Project description


ftw.bridge.proxy is a small pyramid based web application for proxying requests between multiple plone instances. It’s purpose is to isolate the plone instances by routing through this proxy. This allows to easily move plone instances to other servers.

Maintenance mode

Each configured client (plone site) can be switched into maintenance mode on the bridge. When maintenance mode is enabled, the bridge answers every request to this client with a HTTP 503 (Service Unavailable).

The maintenance mode can be enabled in the manage view of the bridge (/manage).

Installing the bridge

Install pyramid and ftw.bridge.proxy and configure the bridge in the pyramid .ini configuration file:

use = egg:ftw.bridge.proxy

clients.intranet.aliases = dashboard
clients.intranet.ip_addresses =
clients.intranet.internal_url =
clients.intranet.public_url =

clients.otherapp.ip_addresses =
clients.otherapp.internal_url =
clients.otherapp.public_url =

bridge.admin.username = admin
bridge.admin.password = secret

Installing the plone addon

For interacting with the bridge there is a plone addon package named ftw.bridge.client, providing a PAS plugin for authenticating requests from the bridge and providing tools for making requests. See the readme of ftw.bridge.client for more details.
