A free, locally hosted API management solution. A proxy for your api, statistics for your api & a powerful api of its own.

This is the aspect of the system which does the actual proxying. It sits in front of your API and does the authentication, key checking, queries per day/second checking. This is the bit you want if you want anything. More detail on the main site.
$ npm install apiaxle-api
This is the (optional) API for managing users, keys and endpoints. Once installed, run it with:
