What is Summit?

Summit is the upcoming synchronization server for the Everest REST client. It will facilitate the synchronization of your Everest projects between multiple devices and multiple members of your team.

It will be available as a subscription-based cloud-service. Plans will be declared early next year when Everest is officially released.

Summit will be written in Node.js.



  • Summit will primarily be powered by a RESTful API. Everest will make calls to it through SummitDataManager which will implement DataManager and thus can be managed by SyncManager.
  • This API shall provide endpoints for all the core data structures in Everest such as the ProjectState and its sub-structures such as Request, for example.
  • Almost every endpoint will support GET, POST, PATCH and DELETE requests.
Get all requests from a project
GET /api/projects/<ProjectID>/requests/
Change the target and HTTP method of a particular request
PATCH /api/projects/<ProjectID>/requests/<RequestID>

    "target": "",
    "httpMethod": "POST"
  • This API will use Express.

Live Sync

  • For team projects, when one team member makes some changes to the Everest Project, they will need to be communicated to other members of the team.
  • Summit will need to push them to these clients. This will be achieved using Socket.IO.
  • Everest will implement a new SummitDataManagerAsync class which will contain callbacks which will react to events received from the Socket.IO channel.


  • Summit will use MongoDB as a database.

Open Source

Summit is licensed under the Apache 2.0 License. It is made open-source so that users have the option to self-host the server and configure their Everest installations to use it.
