Agendash

Build Status Slack Status Known Vulnerabilities

A Dashboard for Agenda


Features

  • Job status auto-refreshes (2-second polling by default)
  • Schedule a new job from the UI
  • Dive in to see more details about the job, like the json data
  • Requeue a job (clone the data and run immediately)
  • Delete jobs (Useful for cleaning up old completed jobs)

Notes

  • Automatically creates additional indexes on several columns (See #24).

Install

npm install --save agendash

Note: Agendash requires mongodb version >2.6.0 to perform the needed aggregate queries. This is your mongo database version, not your node package version! To check your database version, connect to mongo and run db.version().

Standalone usage

Agendash comes with a standalone Express app which you can use like this:

./node_modules/.bin/agendash --db=mongodb://localhost/agendaDb --collection=agendaCollection --port=3001

or like this, for default collection agendaJobs and default port 3000:

./node_modules/.bin/agendash --db=mongodb://localhost/agendaDb

If you are using npm >= 5.2, then you can use npx:

npx agendash --db=mongodb://localhost/agendaDb --collection=agendaCollection --port=3001

Middleware usage

Agendash provides Express middleware you can use at a specified path, for example this will make Agendash available on your site at the /dash path. Note: Do not try to mount Agendash at the root level like app.use('/', Agendash(agenda)).

var express = require('express');
var app = express();

// ... your other express middleware like body-parser

var Agenda = require('agenda');
var Agendash = require('agendash');

var agenda = new Agenda({db: {address: 'mongodb://127.0.0.1/agendaDb'}});
// or provide your own mongo client:
// var agenda = new Agenda({mongo: myMongoClient})

app.use('/dash', Agendash(agenda));

// ... your other routes

// ... start your server

By mounting Agendash as middleware on a specific path, you may provide your own authentication for that path. For example if you have an authenticated session using passport, you can protect the dashboard path like this:

app.use('/dash',
  function (req, res, next) {
    if (!req.user || !req.user.is_admin) {
      res.send(401);
    } else {
      next();
    }
  },
  Agendash(agenda)
);

Other middlewares will come soon in the folder /lib/middlewares/. You'll just have to update the last line to require the middleware you need:

app.use('/agendash', Agendash(agenda, {
  middleware: 'koa'
}));

Note that if you use a CSRF protection middleware like csurf, you might need to configure it off for Agendash-routes.

Additional options

The second argument to Agendash is an optional object. Valid keys are:

  • middleware: Currently only 'express' is supported. I'd like to use 'koa' soon.
  • title: Defaults to "Agendash". Useful if you are running multiple Agenda pools.

Help appreciated

There are several things I would like help with:

  • I'm rusty with Backbone. Clean up the client code. I wasn't sure on the best way to trigger and handle update events.
  • Write some tests!
  • Use Agendash and submit issues!
