Kong Python Plugin Server

Project description


PyPI version

Plugin server for Python language support in Kong plugin.

Requires Kong >= 2.0.0.

Install the plugin server

pip3 install kong-pluginserver
# Replace the go-pluginserver with python plugin server
cp /usr/local/bin/kong-pluginserver /usr/local/bin/go-pluginserver

Configure Kong

Add the following line into kong.conf:


For example, to test examples, clone kong-python-pluginserver to /dir1/kong-python-pluginserver and set go_plugins_dir to /dir1/kong-python-pluginserver/examples

Enable the plugin

Same step as it's a Lua plugin.


  • All PDK API supported by Go Plugin Server is supported.
  • The plugin server is implemented by gevent module for now, thus only one CPU core will be used. If your plugin is CPU-hungry, consider run the plugin instance in a seperate process and implement a piping IPC.
  • Currently you can't run Go plugins and Python plugins at the same time, as Kong only accepts one plugin server socket.


  • Process per instance
  • Tests
  • Hot reload
