Envoy Proxy control-plane written in Python
The purpose of
sovereign is to supply downstream envoy proxies with
configuration in near-realtime by responding to discovery requests.
- Accepts data from source(s) e.g. file, http, custom
- (optional) Applies modifications to the received data
- Renders the data into a Jinja2 template (or returns a static response)
- Serializes the rendered configuration as JSON and returns it to the Envoy proxy
The idea behind this architecture is to enable high-extensibility.
Users can add their own entry point to the package (todo: documentation) which the control-plane will automatically use to retrieve data to be turned into configuration on the fly.
- Python 3.7+
pip install sovereign
