Docker instalation


Instalation & run

  1. Build docker image by docker build -t output-gateway .
  2. Setup ENV variables by .env file or add -e VAR=VALUE to docker run. Env variables are described in .env.template.
  3. Run container by
docker run --rm \
    -p 3004:3004 \ # expose port 3004
    -e PORT=3004 \
    -e MONGO_CONN: mongodb://user:pass@mongo.dp_database:27017/dataplatform?authSource=admin \
    -e POSTGRES_CONN: postgres://user:pass@postgres.dp_database/dataplatform \
    output-gateway # docker image label (defined by step 1)

Local Installation



Install all prerequisites

Install all dependencies using command:

yarn install

from the application's root directory.

Build & Run


To compile typescript code into js one-time (production build):

npm run build

To run the app:

npm start


Run via TypeScript (in this case it is not needed to build separately, application will watch for changes and restart on save):

npm run dev-start

or run with a debugger:

npm run dev-start-debug

Runing the application in any way will load all config variables from environment variables or the .env file. To run, set all environment variables from the .env.template file, or copy the .env.template file into new .env file in root directory and set variables there.

Project uses dotenv package: https://www.npmjs.com/package/dotenv

Application is now running locally on port 3004 or on port specified in the environment variable.

Importing example data

Example data are stored in db/example/.

For importing example data run mongorestore -d $MONGO_DB_NAME ./db/example/mongo_data/dataplatform and psql -h $POSTGRES_HOST -U $POSTGRES_USER -d $POSTGRES_DB -f db/example/sql_dump.sql.


To run all test defined in /test directory simply run this command:

npm test

from the application's root directory. All tests should pass with the correct data. Test data are in the db/example directory. You can import them using the mongorestore -d $MONGO_DB_NAME ./db/example/mongo_data/dataplatform command. More: https://docs.mongodb.com/manual/reference/program/mongorestore/

You can also test the API against the Apiary documentation using dredd (https://dredd.org). To run the tests, make sure the app will be run on port 3004 (setting ENV variable or leaving the default) and run


from the application's root directory.


Logging uses Winston for standard logging with levels, morgan for http access logs and debug (https://www.npmjs.com/package/debug) for debugging.

All logs with silly and debug level are printed as standard log (if appropriate log level is set) using Winston as well as using debug module with "data-platform:output-gateway" settings.

You can set both LOG_LEVEL and DEBUG settings in ENV variables.


For generating documentation run npm run generate-docs. Typedoc source code documentation is located in docs/typedoc.

More documentation in docs/. Mainly new_dataset_integration.md for description on how to add a new dataset and create new API routes.

API documentation

Rest API documentation is placed in docs/apiary_docs.apib which is also up-to-date on golemioapi.docs.apiary.io (master), outputgatewaydev.docs.apiary.io (development).
