Load balancing with Consul & Nginx

#Load balancing #Service registry #Containers
The last few weeks I played with Docker, Consul and other tools, so I tried to load-balance multiple Docker containers with an API. I decided to share with you how I built the system so I wrote this blog post. I hope you find it useful in some way. We will use Consul, Docker, Docker compose, Nginx, Python and Supervisord to create a load-balancing system that gets its configuration updated when the group that load-balance scales up or down.
