Relay Rest Gateway is an API layer built on LibRelay. It runs locally on a bot or monitor server and exchanges accepts requests via http://localhost:8086. Relay Rest Gateway simplifies building Forsta bots and monitors, and provides developers greater flexibility in the technologies they use.

LibRelay is licensed under GPLv3. Relay Rest Gateway provides appropriate API separation between LibRelay and bot or monitor code to allow developers to choose how to license bots and monitors they build on Forsta.


Docker is the easiest way to install and run Relay Rest Gateway:

docker run -p 8086:8086 forstalabs/relay-rest-gateway
