service-agent

3.0.1 • Public • Published

service-agent for node.js

Build Status

HTTP agent that connects to services defined in DNS SRV records, enabling transparent service discovery for any HTTP-based protocol.

Just add the agent to your request, and it will connect to the service.

Usage

Using the popular request module:

const ServiceAgent = require('service-agent');
const Request = require('request');
 
const request = Request.defaults({
  agentClass: ServiceAgent,
  agentOptions: { service:'_http._tcp.' },
  pool: {}
});
 
request('http://pkg.freebsd.org/', function(error, result, body) {
  …
});

Note that you need to set the pool option whenever you specify the service when creating the agent. Otherwise, request will mix multiple services together.

Options

  • service: Service designator to look for, prepended to the hostname. Defaults to _http._tcp..

Limitations

  • Services are not checked for connectivity. Currently, it will only select a weighted random service at the highest priority.
  • SSL is not supported.

Pull request to fix these issues are welcome.

Installation

$ npm install service-agent
