This is a simple project made to play around with kubernetes with some fun extra stuff.
This project is available on github.
- Hosted with Kubernetes on AWS
- Basic OCR features
- Feed of messages
- Native node modules used
The server is implemented as a very simple
Nodejs native modules
The compose file consists of 3 services:
- The client
Which serves the Ember Fastboot server allowing server rendering of our Emberjs single-page application.
Two environment variables are required for the client.
- API_HOST=http://localhost:3000 - FASTBOOT_API_HOST=http://server:3000
FASTBOOT_API_HOST variables is the api url that will be used by fastboot when doing server rendering. For faster rendering, it should point to a server instance without leaving the amazon network and going through public routes. To put it simply, it is the private address to our server service.
Which serves the express server running our API.
It only requires one environment variable.
PG_CONNECTION_STRING is the connection string pointing to the postgres instance.
This is just a simple postgres instance without persistent volumes or state. Whenever it restarts, we lose all data.
