Kong Python Plugin Server

Project description


Plugin server for Python language support in Kong plugin.

Requires Kong >= 2.0.0.

Run the plugin server

git clone
python3 ./ install
kong-pluginserver -s KONG_PREFIX/go_pluginserver.sock

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.
  • If your plugin is CPU-hungry, consider run in a seperate thread. In current gevent model, spending too much time in CPU work will block other requests.
  • Currently you can't run Go plugins and Python plugins at the same time, as Kong only accepts one plugin server socket.


  • Tests
  • Hot reload
