Hi all... but mostly Igor, ;-)
I know many others have requested HTTP/1.1-to-upstream support for all kinds
of reasons. This request is perhaps slightly more focused.
I would *really* like to put nginx in front of my WebSocket servers (for
which I use node.js, but there are popular Python and Ruby implementations
There are lots of good reasons to put nginx in front of a WebSocket server:
you might want to serve static files (efficiently!) on the same port, only
worry about SSL in nginx and not the backend, or running multiple WebSocket
upstreams behind a load-balancing nginx frontend...
Igor, is this something you've considered or looked at, or would you wait
until it made sense to do an HTTP/1.1 (to upstream) implementation?
