Generate configuration files from template, DNS A and SRV records
Full Description


Generate configuration files from defined template and SRV record defined in DNS server or Consul.

ECT Template

Create directory (e.g. template/) and config file

  • template/ with dns server ip, service defined in DNS

    module.exports =
    dns: ''
    service: [
  • template/src/*/.ect in *.ect format

The following is to cache both a and srv record @[servivce name] into variable and reference the first node oauth2.a[0] IP to generate the nginx config file.

<% oauth2 = @['oauth2.service.consul'] %>
location /org/ {
  proxy_pass http://<%- oauth2.a[0] %>:3000/;
  proxy_set_header Host $host;
  proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Protocol $scheme;
  proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $host;

The following is to reference the first node mobile.srv[0].name and .port to generate nginx config file

<% mobile = @['mobile.service.consul'] %>
location /mobile/ {
  proxy_pass http://<%- mobile.srv[0].name %>:<%- mobile.srv[0].port %>/;

Start docker image

docker run -v ${PWD}/template:/usr/src/app/template --name config -d twhtanghk/dns-template

Trigger configuration files generation

curl -X PUT http://dns-template.service.consul:1337/template/ect
  • check template/dst folder for the generated config files
