Container for running REST Quest server
Full Description

Server container for REST Quest

Original REST Quest Project:
Docker REST Quest Project:

Run the server

docker run -d --name rqserver -p 3000:3000 toughiq/rest-quest

This will start the container in background, assign "rqserver" as name and bind to port 3000 on localhost. You now can access the server via http://localhost:3000

Run simple test client

docker run -d --link rqserver toughiq/rest-quest node client.js

This will start the client job in background, link it to the REST Quest server and execute the client script "node client.js"

To get 2 clients to play against each other, just launch a second client container with the exact same command from above.

Use docker-compose for autoplay

docker-compose up -d

This will start up a server container and 2 clients acccording to the docker-compose.yml file. After each tournament the clients will shut down and be restarted by the restart: always directive. From time to time the server or one of the clients may crash and cause the autoplay to stop. In this case just restart all components by

docker-compose restart

To see whats happening inside the containers you can use the standard docker commands. eg:

docker logs -f [containername]
where containername being rqserver, rqclient1 and rqclient2 in this scenario.

docker-compose logs or docker-compose logs [containername(s)] gives the ability to see all containerlogs combined.

Build container from Dockerfile

docker build -t toughiq/rest-quest

Build a local docker image named "toughiq/rest-quest" using the Dockerfile from GitHub repo. If you want to make changes to the Dockerfile itself, just clone the repo using

git clone

Make your changes to the Dockerfile and build the container again from local sources:

docker build -t "toughiq/rest-quest" .
