Wallboard API

A REST API to manage a list of widgets registered for the wallboard.


  • .Net Core sdk 2.0

  • or Docker

The dotnet docker images are quite large (as of Feb. 2018) so you have to be patient.

Run with .Net CLI

cd WallboardBack

dotnet restore
dotnet run

This will serve the API at http://localhost:5000/api/

Run with Docker

You have to set an environment variable "ASPNETCORE_URLS=http://+:5000" to allow the container to listen to all incoming ips.

cd WallboardBack
docker run --name wallboard-back -e "ASPNETCORE_URLS=http://+:5000" -p 5000:5000 -v ${PWD}:/app -w /app -it microsoft/dotnet

dotnet restore
dotnet run

This will serve the API at http://localhost:5000/api/

To resume a previously exited Docker container :

docker start wallboard-back
docker attach wallboard-back

dotnet restore
dotnet run

Build Docker image

We do not support multistage build for now so you need both Docker and .Net Core SDK to build the image.

dotnet publish -c Release -o out

docker build -t wallboard_dotnetapp .
docker run --rm -p 5000:5000 wallboard_dotnetapp

This will serve the API at http://localhost:5000/api/
