Onionspray is a fork from EOTK and stands largely on the experience of work Alec Muffett led at Facebook to create www.facebookcorewwwi.onion1, but it owes a huge debt to Mike Tigas's work at ProPublica to put their site into Onionspace through using NGINX as a rewriting proxy -- and that he wrote the whole experience up in great detail including sample config files.

Reading this prodded Alec to learn about NGINX and then aim to shrink & genericise the solution; so thanks, Mike!

Also, thanks go to Christopher Weatherhead for acting as a local NGINX sounding board :-)

And back in history: Michal Nánási, Matt Jones, Trevor Pottinger and the rest of the FB-over-Tor team. Hugs.
