What is Ocelot?

It is aimed at people using .NET running a micro services / service oriented architecture that need a unified point of entry into their system. However it will work with anything that speaks HTTP and run on any platform that ASP.NET Core supports. It manipulates the HttpRequest object into a state specified by its configuration until it reaches a request builder middleware where it creates a HttpRequestMessage object which is used to make a request to a downstream service.
Ocelot is a tool in the Microservices Tools category of a tech stack.
Ocelot is an open source tool with 4.3K GitHub stars and 935 GitHub forks. Here’s a link to Ocelot's open source repository on GitHub
