Short Description
Serverless framework using node.js
Full Description

node-dash


An experiment to build a serverless setup using node.js.

The repository and queue are implemented using Pouchdb, but
Couchdb will work as well.

Installation

There are 4 options to get this running:

  • git clone this repository and run npm install followed by npm start
  • docker run -d -p 8080:8080 seriousme/node-dash
  • use the docker-compose file in the docker folder
  • use kubectl create -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/seriousme/node-dash/master/k8/node-dash.yaml to create a deployment on a Kubernetes Installation.

Once it runs you can send your browser to http://\<your host\>:8080/ which will show you a web interface, on Kubernetes kubectl describe service apiserver will show the IP/port.
Alternatively you can use any REST client (e.g. CURL/Postman/etc) to talk to the API server

REST endpoints

The following endpoints are supported:

List of requests:

curl -X GET "http://localhost:8080/dash/requests"

Details of a request

curl -X GET "http://localhost:8080/dash/requests/:requestid"

Create a new asynchronous request

An example:

curl -X GET "http://localhost:8080/myactions/sum?a=1&b=2"

Create a new synchronous request

An example:

curl -X GET "http://localhost:8080/myactions/sum?a=1&b=2&sync"

List of actions

curl -X GET "http://localhost:8080/dash/actions"

Details of an action

curl -X GET "http://localhost:8080/dash/actions/:actionid"

Create a new action

An example:

curl -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{
  "_id": "/myactions/min",
  "code": "function main(params){ return { \"min\": Number(params.a) - Number(params.b)};}"
}' "http://localhost:8080/dash/actions/%2fmyactions%2fmin"

Update an action

An example:

curl -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{
  "_id": "/myactions/min",
  "code": "function main(params){ return { \"min\": Number(params.a) - Number(params.b)};}",
  "_rev": "1-dadb9a995a83675dea6954a1515e08bb"
}' "http://localhost:8080/dash/actions/%2fmyactions%2fmin"

Todo

Its an experiment, so don't use this in production unless you know what you are doing !
E.g. isolation between actioncode and the framework is based on node VM functionality
which offers some protection but is not bulletproof against hostile actions !

A better, and more elaborate, approach would be to inject the action code into a docker
container and then send the requests to that container. If the container is then idle for
say 5 minutes it can be shut.
