RFE: Put SQLite DB into a directory, so it can be hosted on docker volume (so it survives an image upgrade) #409

General information

  • OS Platform and Distribution (e.g., Linux Ubuntu 16.04): docker 17.12.0-ce on CentOS 7
  • ElasticHQ Version: v3.4.0 (current latest, 9f821357c54a)
  • Elasticsearch Version: N/A
  • Python version: N/A
  • Browser Vendor and Version (if applicable): N/A

Issue Description

Currently recreating a docker container containing an elastichq.db results in the loss of that file, and without an ugly workaround it's hard to relocate that file.

Source Code / Logs

The location of elastichq.db is hardcoded into ProdSettings:

Probable drawbacks

Of course, maybe this might require SQL Alchemy migrations.

This may be possible using an external settings.json.... this needs to be documented but is already supported. I have an open issue for this, and will update this when I've tested it. #407

That'd require mounting and maintaining an external settings file.

I currently use this "one liner" to put the DB file into a directory. ("db" already exists, it's just empty for some reason.)

docker run --detach \
           --restart=always \
           --net host \
           --volume elastichq:/src/db \
           --name elastichq \
           elastichq/elasticsearch-hq \
           sh -x -c 'sed -i -r -e "s/_sqlalchemy_database_uri =.*/_sqlalchemy_database_uri = \"sqlite:\/\/\/\" + os.path.join(BASEPATH, \"db\" , \"elastichq.db\")/" /src/elastichq/config/ && exec supervisord -c /etc/supervisor/supervisord.conf'

That's a heck of a one-liner. I will add this to the docs as well.
