river is a Reverse Proxy Application based on the pingora library from Cloudflare.

Current State

As part of the initial Kickstart Spike, we are working towards an early preview of the river tool.

Until further notice, there is no expectation of stability.

Demonstration steps

At the moment, river can be invoked from the command line. See --help for all options.

Configuration is currently done exclusively via configuration file. See test-config.toml for an example configuration file. Additionally, see toml-configuration.md for more configuration details.
