We discuss the advanced techniques available within nginx for URL manipulation and content generation. We will cover using rewrite and location rules, differences between internal and external redirects (and HTTP status codes), using and blocking cookies with upstream servers, and actual web-page generation all within nginx, without necessarily using any resources external to the configuration file itself.
The material will be based on the experience of running semantic URL services like mdoc.su and bxr.su, as well as on-the-fly modification of the behaviour of applications like the Java-based OpenGrok with the help of nginx.conf.
Attendees will gain a clear understanding of how URL manipulation works within nginx, and will be able to design deterministic URL shortening services using semantic URL schemes.
