  • shenyu-client : user fast access with Spring MVC, Dubbo, Spring Cloud.

  • shenyu-common : framework common class

  • shenyu-disruptor : based on disruptor Enclosure

  • shenyu-register-center : rpc type register for shenyu-client

  • shenyu-dist : build project

  • shenyu-metrics : metrics impl by prometheus.

  • shenyu-plugin : ShenYu provider plugin collection.

  • shenyu-spi : ShenYu spi define.

  • shenyu-spring-boot-starter : support for the spring boot starter

  • shenyu-sync-data-center : provider ZooKeeper, HTTP, WebSocket, Nacos to sync data

  • shenyu-examples : the RPC examples project

  • shenyu-web : core processing packages including plugins, request routing and forwarding, and so on


  • ShenYu provides ability such as current limiting, fusing, forwarding, routing monitoring and so on by its plugins.

  • Support HTTP, RESTFul, WebSocket, Dubbo, GRPC, Tars and Spring Cloud Proxy.

  • Plug-in hot plug, users can customize the development.

  • Selectors and rules are dynamically configured for flexible matching.

  • Support for cluster deployment.

If you want to customize, see custom-plugin

Selector & rule

According to your HTTP request headers, selectors and rules are used to route your requests.

Selector is your first route, It is coarser grained, for example, at the module level.

Rule is your second route and what do you think your request should do. For example a method level in a module.

The selector and the rule match only once, and the match is returned. So the coarsest granularity should be sorted last.

Data Caching & Data Sync

Since all data have been cached using ConcurrentHashMap in the JVM, it's very fast.

When user have changed the configuration in the background management, ShenYu wiil dynamically updates its cache by listening to the ZooKeeper node, WebSocket push, HTTP longPull.


  • JDK 1.8+
