Recommendation

If your application is based on a development platform with a language included in our current list of supported SDKs, we recommend that you use an SDK instead.

2. When should I use the Hackle Proxy?

If the language used to create your application and webpage is not supported by any of the Hackle SDKs, your application can still be linked to Hackle using our Hackle Proxy. However, if there is an SDK that supports the language you are using, it is recommended that you integrate using SDK. In special cases such as PHP, it can be used at the same time as SDK.

A list of development platforms supported by SDK can be found in the SDK Integration document.

5. Best Practices

This varies depending on different situations but the best practice is something to always consider in general.

5.1 How many Proxy instances should I deploy?

Proxy is typically implemented to scale from lower specifications. It is recommended that you deploy at least two instances for a reliable configuration.

5.2 Using the Load Balancer

It is recommended that you use a load balancer for routing traffic for reliable expansion for Proxy instances. With AWS, you can use AWS Elastic Load Balancer to reliably scale up your Proxy instance as internal traffic increases.
