Order Server

Go Report Card

This service for Element43 takes market data off the orders queue from NSQ (generated by emdr-to-nsq) and stores it for later retrieval via the API. The orders are stored as Snappy compressed JSON strings bundled by market (regionID+typeID) in a PostgreSQL instance.


Either use the prebuilt Docker images and pass the appropriate env vars (see below), or:

  • Clone this repo into your gopath
  • Run go get
  • Run go build

Deployment Info

Builds and releases are handled by Drone.

Environment Variable Default Description
LOG_LEVEL info Threshold for logging messages to be printed
PORT 8000 Port for the API to listen on
NSQ_URL nsqd:4150 Hostname/IP of the NSQD instance to connect to
POSTGRES_URL postgres://order-server@localhost:5432/order-server?sslmode=disable URL to this service's Postgres database


  • Improve compression story, no gzip support so far (saves CPU time)
  • Add proper caching backend (dynamic invalidation as new market data comes in)
  • General code cleanup (this is my second Go project), add performance metrics collection


Prefix: /api/orders/v1

URL Pattern Description
/region/:regionID/ Get all orders in a region - this can be a lot of data, think around 60MB of JSON for The Forge!
/type/:typeID/ Get all orders of a type
/region/:regionID/type/:typeID/ Get all orders of a type in a region. Similar to the market view in game

The return values share a similar schema. Truncated example output for api/orders/v1/region/10000002/type/34/:
