APISIX

15 Jan 2020

APISIX is a cloud-native microservices API gateway, delivering the ultimate
performance, security, open source and scalable platform for all your APIs
and microservices.

APISIX is based on Nginx and etcd. Compared with traditional API gateways,
APISIX has dynamic routing and plug-in hot loading, which is especially
suitable for API management under micro-service system.

APISIX has been incubating since 2019-10-17.

### Three most important unfinished issues to address before graduating:

 1. More Apache Releases and more committers act as release manager to
 release a version.
 2. More committers and PPMC members.
 3. Branding issues in the documentation, code, website, etc.

### Are there any issues that the IPMC or ASF Board need to be aware of?

 None

### How has the community developed since the last report?

 - We have some talks about the best practices of high-performance API
 gateway on COSCon 2019, Dec 8th and OpenTalk, Dec 8th.
 - We have solved the Apache APISIX major brand issues in documentation,
 code, website, etc.
 - We have 13 committers and 50 contributors (including 13 committers)
 contributing to Apache APISIX.
 - Over 19 company users have announced that they are using APISIX and
 more than 50% of them also submitted code or fixed the documentation for
 APISIX
 : https://github.com/apache/incubator-apisix/issues/487

### How has the project developed since the last report?

 The project has been quite health, with more than 29 pull requests, 25 of
 them have being merged in December. These pull requests are authored by a
 diverse set of contributors. We also suggest and guide users from QQ
 group to make issues at Apache APISIX mailing list, which is helpful for
 people who have the same issue and tracking bugs.

 This month's Pull Request is mainly divided into three aspects:
 - Fixing Apache APISIX bug.
 - Supporting more configuration items and optimizing the experience on
 Apache APISIX Dashboard.
 - Supplement Apache APISIX function manual

  search results of `APISIX` currently obtained through the search engine
  actually belongs to `Apache APISIX` and are completely controllable.
