I think I started looking at creating a RewriteOptions object, but got side tracked and this project has been idle for a little while. I just updated it this weekend for the latest mod_pagespeed, and put it out there.
Cool. As you get time to push this forward, please don't hesitate to ask questions.
I like how the instaweb API is designed, and how you provide "backend
functionalities" through adapter objects (if I remember correctly). With nginx extensive subrequests mechanism, fetching external resources shouldn't be too difficult.
Thanks! It was a goal up front to make ports like this possible.
This Makefile could definitely help. I was also wondering if there was a
python lib that could make sense of Google's internal build files ?
I'm not 100% sure -- we are not experts in the .gyp file system ourselves although there is doc here: http://code.google.com/p/gyp/wiki/InputFormatReference. What problem are you trying to solve?

Out of curiosity, have you defined a mechanism to configure nginx to use any of the predefined filters? It looks like you were aware of RewriteOptions, which is the API-based equivalent to pagespeed.conf, but you are not using it yet in https://github.com/mtourne/ngx_instaweb/blob/master/ngx_http_instaweb_module.cpp .
The next step in your nginx integration looks to be resource-handling and fetching. Specifically, you need to define a way to fetch external HTTP resources referenced on a page, and a way to handle fetches for rewritten resources. We can help you if you have any questions feel free to reach out.

We've been working along the same lines you have: starting with a mod_pagespeed build, generate a linkable library that has the kernel of functionality needed to integrate mod_pagespeed's parser & algorithms into a new platform.
