Full Description

Dtk Server

What it is?

Dtk Server is a Ruby based application that handles requests from Dtk Client and sends requests to Dtk Repoman. It manages tenant users, installed and imported component and servie modules, creates and converges service instances and performs all node orchestration.


Deploying Dtk Server with Docker

Fastest way to deploy Dtk Server is with a Docker container. Docker image getdtk/dtk-server contains all required services and components for deploying Dtk Server.


  • Install Docker

  • Select a directory on the host (host volume) which will be used by the Docker container for persistence (e.g. /usr/share/docker/dtk), and create dtk.config (e.g. /usr/share/docker/dtk/dtk.config) with following content:

    PUBLIC_ADDRESS=<public address of the docker host>
    ## optionally set git user and email for script
    # GIT_EMAIL=
    # GIT_USER=

More information about the dtk.config file can be found in dtk.config.example

Bootstrap Method

Run this command to spin up a Dtk Server instance, along with dtk-arbiter:

\curl -sSL | bash -s /usr/share/docker/dtk

The last argument should be the previously created host volume. Once the command completes successfully, Dtk Server should be listening on the default 8080 port.

Manual method

Starting the container

Start the Dtk Server docker container with the directory from above used as a volume. The docker container requires some ports to be forwared, for example: HTTP, ActiveMQ and SSH port. Example of starting a Docker container:

docker run --name dtk -v /usr/share/docker/dtk:/host_volume -p 8080:80 -p 6163:6163 -p 2222:22 -d getdtk/dtk-server

This will pull the latest available Dtk Server Docker image (getdtk/dtk-server).

Example of starting a Dtk Server Docker container from a tagged Docker image.

docker run --name dtk -v /usr/share/docker/dtk:/host_volume -p 8080:80 -p 6163:6163 -p 2222:22 -d getdtk/dtk-server:v0.9.0

Connecting to Dtk Server Docker container

After the container is up and running (will take a minute on the first start), you can connect to it via dtk-client, by running the dtk command.

Installing Dtk Client

Bootstrap method

Run this command to automatically install and configure Dtk Client.

\curl -sSL | bash -s /usr/share/docker/dtk
Manual method

Assuming the docker container was started as described above, Dtk Client can be installed and configured automatically running the script:

./ [-u user] [-p port] configuration_path

configuration_path   - location of dtk.config file directory
user                 - user on which to install and configure dtk-client
                       defaults to new user named 'dtk-client
port                 - port where Dtk server is listening
                       defaults to 8080

In case the dtk-client gem is installed standalone without the script, in the Dtk Client prompt you can enter the values set in dtk.config (username, password and instance address).

Unless you have SSL, after the prompt, values for secure_connection and http_port in ~/dtk/client.conf should be changed to false and forwared http port values respectively.

Note that if you need to forward GIT SSH port to a different one, you can use the -e GIT_PORT=<desired_port>.

Upgrading the container

To upgrade Dtk container to a newer release, simply rerun the bootstrap script:

\curl -sSL | bash -s /usr/share/docker/dtk

To get the latest docker image which is built from master branch:

\curl -sSL | bash -s -- -t latest /usr/share/docker/dtk
