Hello!

I have a Rails monolith and have identified a few parts which can be chipped off and deployed as self-contained services, called by the monolith.

Each service will be a rack app presenting an API over HTTP.  For now everything will run on the same box.  The services shouldn't be exposed to the outside world.

I have almost built the first service and am now wondering how best to serve it.  For example:

- Does Unicorn alone suffice or should I front it with Nginx?
- To keep the services internal do I just listen to a port on the loopback interface?

Thanks in advance,

Andrew Stewart

This depends on how you want clients to connect.  Either the unicorns
need to listen on different addresses/ports, or you can set up nginx to
handle routing so clients only connect to nginx.

Any address:port (127.0.0.1:1234, 127.0.0.2:1234, ...), or unix socket.
