Local Development Deployment
Deployment profile dev-local-3nodes.
This deployment profile comes with default pre-generated keys and password. It is not meant to contain any real data nor be used in production. If you wish to do so, use instead the Network Deployment (network) deployment profile.
This deployment profile deploys 3 MedCo nodes on a single machine for development purposes. It is meant to be used only on your local machine, i.e.
localhost. The tags of the docker images used are all dev, i.e. the ones built from the development version of the different source codes. They are available either through Docker Hub, or built locally from the sources of each component.
First step is to clone the
medcorepository with the correct branch. This example gets the data in the home directory of the current user, but that can be of course changed.
git clone -b dev https://github.com/ldsec/medco.git
Next step is to build the docker images defined in the
Note that this will build the docker images defined locally. Because those are development versions, there is no guarantee that they will work at any point in time.
Next step is to run the nodes. They will run simultaneously, and the logs of the running containers will maintain the console captive. No configuration changes are needed in this scenario before running the nodes. To run them:
$ make up
Wait some time for the initialization of the containers to be done (up to the message: “i2b2-medco-srv… - Started x of y services (z services are lazy, passive or on-demand)”), this can take up to 10 minutes. For the subsequent runs, the startup will be faster.
In order to deploy new code in the running deployment, it is enough to stop and start again the running container(s). Example:
To confirm that a new version of the image has been deployed, Docker will output in the console "Recreating container ...".
First step is to clone the
glowing-bear-medcorepository with the correct branch.
git clone -b dev https://github.com/ldsec/glowing-bear-medco.git
Glowing Bear is deployed separately for development, as we use its convenient live development server:
Note that the first run will take a significant time in order to build everything.
In order to stop the containers, simply hit
Ctrl+Cin all the active windows.
In order to test that the development deployment of MedCo is working, access Glowing Bear in your web browser at
http://localhost:4200/glowing-bear/and use the default credentials specified in Keycloak user management. If you are new to Glowing Bear you can watch the Glowing Bear user interface walkthrough video. You can also use the CLI client to perform tests.
