EasyHAProxy

Service discovery for HAProxy

EasyHAProxy dynamically creates the haproxy.cfg based on the labels defined in docker containers.

EasyHAProxy can detect and configure HAProxy automatically on the following platforms:

  • Docker
  • Docker Swarm
  • Kubernetes

Features

EasyHAProxy will discover the services based on the Docker Tags of the containers running on a Docker host or Docker Swarm cluster and dynamically set up the haproxy.cfg. Below, EasyHAProxy main features:

  • Use Letsencrypt with HAProxy.
  • Set your custom SSL certificates
  • Balance traffic between multiple replicas
  • Set SSL with three different levels of validations and according to the most recent definitions.
  • Set up HAProxy to listen to TCP.
  • Add redirects.
  • Enable/disable Stats on port 1936 with a custom password.
  • Enable/disable custom errors.

Also, it is possible to set up HAProxy from a simple Yaml file instead of creating haproxy.cfg file.

How Does It Works?

You don't need to change your current infrastructure and don't need to learn the HAProxy configuration.

The steps are:

  • Run the EasyHAProxy container;
  • Add some labels to the containers you want to be parsed by EasyHAProxy (see detailed instructions below);
  • EasyHAProxy will automatically detect the containers, set up, and reload the HAProxy configurations for you without downtime.
