Foxx reference

Each Foxx service is defined by a JSON manifest specifying the entry point, any scripts defined by the service, possible configuration options and Foxx dependencies, as well as other metadata. Within a service, these options are exposed as the service context, which is also used to mount routers defining the service’s API endpoints.

Foxx also provides a number of utility modules as well as a flexible sessions middleware with different transport and storage mechanisms.

Foxx services can be installed and managed over the Web-UI or through ArangoDB’s HTTP API.
