Hipache Router

Hipache is a distributed HTTP and websocket proxy.

tsuru uses Hipache to route the requests to the containers. Routing information is stored by tsuru in the configured Redis server, Hipache will read this configuration directly from Redis.

Adding repositories

Let’s start adding the repositories for tsuru which contain the Hipache package.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:tsuru/ppa -y
sudo apt-get update


In order to install Hipache, just use apt-get:

sudo apt-get install node-hipache


In your /etc/hipache.conf file you must set the redisHost and redisPort configuration values. After this, you only need to start hipache with:

sudo start hipache
