Rango is part of OpenDAX Trading Platform


Rango is a general purpose websocket server which dispatch public and private messages from RabbitMQ. Rango is made as a drop-in replacement of Ranger built in ruby. It was designed to be very fast, scalable with a very low memory footprint.


To simplify the migration from Ranger all environement variables are the same:

RANGER_HOST0.0.0.0Hostname to expose the websocket connection
RANGER_PORT8080Websocket server port
RABBITMQ_HOSTlocalhostRabbitMQ hostname to connect to
RABBITMQ_PORT5672RabbitMQ port
RABBITMQ_USERguestUsername used to authenticate to RabbitMQ
RABBITMQ_PASSWORDguestPassword used to authenticate to RabbitMQ


Rango exposes metrics in Prometheus format on the port 4242.
