Deploying a Toshi app requires a few processes to run:
This is a client we provide (similar to the iOS or Android client) that provides a wrapper around the Toshi backend services. It also handles end-to-end encrypting all messages using the Signal protocol. It is written in Java and runs in the background, proxying all the requests to and from your bot.
We use redis pub/sub to provide a connection between the toshi-headless-client and your bot.
This is where all your app logic lives.
Postgres is used to store session data so you can persist state for each user who talks to your bot (similar to cookies in a web browser).
