Full Description

Apache OpenWhisk runtime for Node.js version 6

Source for this image located in Github apache/incubator-openwhisk-runtime-nodejs

Looking for the Node.js version 8 checkout the image openwhisk/action-nodejs-v8

Give it a try today

To use as a docker action for Node.js 6

wsk action update myAction myAction.js --docker openwhisk/nodejs6action

This works on any deployment of Apache OpenWhisk

To use on deployment that contains the rutime as a kind

To use as a kind action using Node.js 6

wsk action update myAction myAction.js --kind nodejs:6

Local development

For Node.js 6

./gradlew core:nodejs6Action:distDocker

This will produce the image whisk/nodejs6action

Build and Push image for Node.js 6

docker login
./gradlew core:nodejs6Action:distDocker -PdockerImagePrefix=$prefix-user 

Then create the action using your image from dockerhub

wsk action update myAction myAction.js --docker $user_prefix/nodejs6action

The $user_prefix is usually your dockerhub user id.

Deploy OpenWhisk using ansible environment that contains the kind nodejs:6 and nodejs:8
Assuming you have OpenWhisk already deployed locally and OPENWHISK_HOME pointing to root directory of OpenWhisk core repository.

Set ROOTDIR to the root directory of this repository.

Redeploy OpenWhisk

cd $OPENWHISK_HOME/ansible
ANSIBLE_CMD="ansible-playbook -i ${ROOTDIR}/ansible/environments/local"
$ANSIBLE_CMD setup.yml
$ANSIBLE_CMD couchdb.yml
$ANSIBLE_CMD initdb.yml
$ANSIBLE_CMD wipe.yml
$ANSIBLE_CMD openwhisk.yml

Or you can use wskdev and create a soft link to the target ansible environment, for example:

ln -s ${ROOTDIR}/ansible/environments/local ${OPENWHISK_HOME}/ansible/environments/local-nodejs
wskdev fresh -t local-nodejs


Install dependencies from the root directory on $OPENWHISK_HOME repository

./gradlew install

Using gradle for the ActionContainer tests you need to use a proxy if running on Mac, if Linux then don't use proxy options
You can pass the flags -Dhttp.proxyHost=localhost -Dhttp.proxyPort=3128 directly in gradle command.
Or save in your $HOME/.gradle/


Using gradle to run all tests

./gradlew :tests:test

Using gradle to run some tests

./gradlew :tests:test --tests *ActionContainerTests*

Using IntelliJ:

  • Import project as gradle project.
  • Make sure working directory is root of the project/repo
  • Add the following Java VM properties in ScalaTests Run Configuration, easiest is to change the Defaults for all ScalaTests to use this VM properties
