Updates

For updates and release notes, please read the CHANGELOG.

Migrating to Minetrack 5? See the migration guide.

Installation

  1. Node 12.4.0+ is required (you can check your version using node -v)
  2. Make sure everything is correct in config.json.
  3. Add/remove servers by editing the servers.json file
  4. Run npm install
  5. Run npm run build (this bundles assets/ into dist/)
  6. Run node main.js to boot the system (may need sudo!)

(There's also install.sh and start.sh, but they may not work for your OS.)

Database logging is disabled by default. You can enable it in config.json by setting logToDatabase to true. This requires sqlite3 drivers to be installed.

Docker

Minetrack can be built and run with Docker from this repository in several ways:

Build and deploy directly with Docker

# build image with name minetrack and tag latest
docker build . --tag minetrack:latest

# start container, delete on exit
# publish container port 8080 on host port 80
docker run --rm --publish 80:8080 minetrack:latest

The published port can be changed by modifying the parameter argument, e.g.:

  • Publish to host port 8080: --publish 8080:8080
  • Publish to localhost (thus prohibiting external access): --publish 127.0.0.1:8080:8080

Build and deploy with docker-compose

# build and start service
docker-compose up --build

# stop service and remove artifacts
docker-compose down

Nginx reverse proxy

The following configuration enables Nginx to act as reverse proxy for a Minetrack instance that is available at port 8080 on localhost:

server {
    server_name minetrack.example.net;
    listen 80;
    location / {
        proxy_pass http://localhost:8080;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection 'upgrade';
    }
}
