Is there any specific reasons on why you don't like Kong? We are using it on production.
Pretty much solves the problem at hand for us.

I've had immeasurable issues with the development lifecycle (in particular the feedback loop) when writing plugins for it (using the Go PDK bridge)

Nothing in particular. It actually looks great. I may even use it for a toy project first. I'm using haproxy for load balancer so I'm thinking I should try out its other features as well.

If you're just looking for a LB, you should check out nginx as well. FYI, Kong is just a wrapper around nginx.
