DuckTape is a simple reverse proxy server which will serve up a directory of files and do simple proxying. It is quite handy when developing Web applications that do not depend on application servers and for local testing.
It is inspired by tape.
DuckTape is built on top of Python and Twisted.
pip install --user twisted
To install DuckTape, place the
ducktape executable somewhere in your path.
Every time DuckTape receives a connection, it check if the file exists in the folder it is serving; if the file exists it is served directly, if it does not DuckTape acts as a reverse proxy.
DuckTape also offers an option to check if the service that is being proxied is down and shutting down if that is the case
