FakkelBrigade server reservations

Build Status Dependency Status Code Climate Coverage Status

A web-interface to reserve TF2 gameservers

Requirements

  • Ruby, preferbly 2.1, but other versions might work. You should use ruby-build to install Ruby.
  • A Steam API key for user sign in
  • Memcached
  • A Source game dedicated server installation, only tested with TF2 on linux for now.
  • Gameserver started with -port PORTNUMBER -autoupdate in the startup line

Installation

  1. Make sure you've installed the requirements.
  2. Review the yaml files in the config directory.
  3. Enter your Steam API key in config/initializers/steam.rb: STEAM_WEB_API_KEY = your_api_key_here
  4. Install the required gems using bundler: gem install bundler && bundle
  5. Edit the seed data in db/seeds.rb
  6. Change the value of variable chdir in config/thin.yml to the path to your app: chdir: /path/to/the/application
  7. Setup and migrate the databases: rake db:create db:migrate db:seed RAILS_ENV=production
  8. Start the webserver: thin -C config/thin.yml start
  9. Add exec reservation.cfg to the server.cfg of the gameserver

Servers

There's currently no web interface for adding/editing servers (pull requests welcome). So you'll have to enter them manually in the database or using the rails console.

Here's how you add a local server:

LocalServer.create(:name => "Name",
                   :ip   => "server_ip_or_hostname",
                   :port => "server_port",
                   :path => "/absolute/path/on/file/system")

The local servers should run with the same user as the web application, if you don't like this, use the ssh interface for managing 'remote' servers.

And this is how you add a remote server:

SshServer.create(:name => "Name",
                 :ip   => "server_ip_or_hostname",
                 :port => "server_port",
                 :path => "/absolute/path/on/file/system")

The user running the web application needs to be able to ssh to the remote server, you should use passwordless key-based authorization for this, add an entry in ~/.ssh/config for each remote machine.

Host server_ip_or_hostname
  Hostname server_ip_or_hostname
  Port remote_ssh_port_if_not_22
  User remote_user
  IdentityFile ~/.ssh/id_rsa_for_remote_server

API

There's a simple JSON API to create and stop reservations. It typically returns a prefilled JSON response, which you can edit and send to one of the URLs listed in the "actions".

Authentication

All requests should have the API key as the HTTP parameter api_key. Donators can find the API key in their settings page, or you can contact me to get yours.

Step 1

curl -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" 'http://serveme.tf/api/reservations/new?api_key=your_api_key'

This will return a prefilled JSON response, which you can POST to the action "find_servers"

{
  "reservation": {
    "starts_at":"2014-04-13T18:00:20.415+02:00",
    "ends_at":"2014-04-13T20:00:20.415+02:00"
  },
  "actions": {
    "find_servers": "http://serveme.tf/api/reservations/find_servers"
  }
}

Step 2

POST a reservation with starts_at and ends_at filled in to find_servers.

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"reservation":{"starts_at":"2014-04-13T18:00:20.415+02:00","ends_at":"2014-04-13T20:00:20.415+02:00"}}' 'http://serveme.tf/api/reservations/find_servers?api_key=your_api_key'

This will return a prefilled JSON response with available servers, whitelists and server configs included:

{
  "reservation": {
    "starts_at": "2014-04-13T18:00:20.415+02:00",
    "ends_at": "2014-04-13T20:00:20.415+02:00",
    "server_id": null,
    "password": null,
    "rcon": null,
    "first_map": null,
    "tv_password": "tv",
    "tv_relaypassword": "tv",
    "server_config_id": null,
    "whitelist_id": null,
    "custom_whitelist_id": null,
    "auto_end": true
  },
  "servers": [
    {
      "id": 64,
      "name": "FritzBrigade #10",
      "location": {
        "id": 8,
        "name": "Germany",
        "flag": "de"
      }
    }
  ],
  "server_configs": [
    {
      "id": 2,
      "file": "etf2l_6v6"
    },
    {
      "id": 3,
      "file": "etf2l_9v9"
    }
  ],
  "whitelists": [
    {
      "id": 2,
      "file": "etf2l_whitelist_6v6.txt"
    },
    {
      "id": 3,
      "file": "etf2l_whitelist_9v9.txt"
    }
  ],
  "actions": {
    "create": "http://serveme.tf/api/reservations"
  }
}

Step 3

POST a complete reservation to the "create" action

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"reservation":{"starts_at":"2014-04-13T18:00:20.415+02:00","ends_at":"2014-04-13T20:00:20.415+02:00","rcon":"foo","password":"bar","server_id":1337}}' 'http://serveme.tf/api/reservations?api_key=your_api_key'

If there's any errors, you'll get a HTTP 400 and a new prefilled reservation JSON with errors:

{
  "reservation": {
    "starts_at": "2014-04-13T18:00:20.415+02:00",
    "ends_at": "2014-04-13T20:00:20.415+02:00",
    "server_id": null,
    "password": "bar",
    "rcon": "foo",
    "first_map": null,
    "tv_password": "tv",
    "tv_relaypassword": "tv",
    "server_config_id": null,
    "whitelist_id": null,
    "custom_whitelist_id": null,
    "auto_end": true,
    "errors": {
      "server": {
        "error": "can't be blank"
      },
      "starts_at": {
        "error": "can't be more than 15 minutes in the past"
      }
    }
  },
  "actions": {
    "create": "http://serveme.tf/api/reservations"
  },
  "servers": [
    {
      "id": 64,
      "name": "FritzBrigade #10",
      "flag": "de"
    }
  ],
  "server_configs": [
    {
      "id": 19,
      "file": "wptf2l"
    }
  ],
  "whitelists": [
    {
      "id": 9,
      "file": "wp9v9_whitelist.txt"
    }
  ]
}

If everything went alright, you'll get a HTTP 200 and shown your reservation details:

{
  "reservation": {
    "starts_at": "2014-04-13T19:00:20.415+02:00",
    "ends_at": "2014-04-13T20:00:20.415+02:00",
    "server_id": 64,
    "password": "bar",
    "rcon": "foo",
    "first_map": null,
    "tv_password": "tv",
    "tv_relaypassword": "tv",
    "server_config_id": null,
    "whitelist_id": null,
    "custom_whitelist_id": null,
    "auto_end": true,
    "id": 12345,
    "last_number_of_players": 0,
    "inactive_minute_counter": 0,
    "logsecret": 298424416816498481223654962917404607282,
    "start_instantly": false,
    "end_instantly": false,
    "errors": {}
  },
  "actions": {
    "delete": "http://serveme.tf/api/reservations/12345"
  }
}

Step 4

After the match is over, you can end your reservation

First, you can check your reservation details:

curl -X GET -H "Content-Type: application/json" 'http://serveme.tf/api/reservations/12345?api_key=your_api_key'

This JSON response will tell you if the reservation hasn't ended by itself already with the "ended" boolean. If you want to end it yourself, you need to send a HTTP DELETE to the "delete" action URL:

curl -X DELETE -H "Content-Type: application/json" 'http://serveme.tf/api/reservations/12345?api_key=your_api_key'

The "delete" action will respond with a 204 if the reservation was deleted before it was started, else it will respond with a 200 and the reservation's information.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
