Upstream selection.

Project Description

R(outing)Ump(ire) is an experimenal upstream (i.e. server) selector for HTTP requests. It does not proxy the request but instead integrates with a load-balancer or reverse-proxy that exposes an upstream selection interface:


$ git clone
$ cd rump
$ mkvirtualenv rump
(rump)$ pip install -e .[tests]
(rump)$ py.test test/ --cov=rump --cov-report term-missing


Typically you can embed complex routing logic directly in a load-balancer or reverse-proxy (e.g. nginx lua, varnish vcl, etc) and that’s what should be done 99% of the time.

This is an experiment to see what writing a Python based HTTP upstream selector would look like and what flexibility that gives you.

Use it as a program or embed it as a lib in your proxy.


Install it:

Use it:

$ rump list
$ rump show -d my-router
$ rump edit -d my-router
$ service rumpd status


Get it:

$ pip install rump

Use it:

import rump

router = rump.Router(

upstream = router.match_upstream(router.request_type(wsgi_environ))
if upstream:
   server = upstream()
