Cloud Foundry Twitter Search
This is a distributed application containing 2 components:
- twitter2rabbit: A standalone Spring Integration application that periodically polls twitter for tweets containing the word "cloud" and places them in a Rabbit queue.
- rabbit2socks: A node.js application that consumes tweets from the Rabbit queue and pushes them to the browser using Sock.js
Prior to deploying the app, update the file public/index.html to the URL you plan to provide for the application:
var sock = new SockJS("http://mytwittersearch.cloudfoundry.com/socks");
Package the application dependencies by running 'npm install'. To deploy the application to Cloud Foundry, simply use the provided manifest.yml file. You need only to provide the application with a name and URL (make sure you use the URL you specified in public/index.html):
cd rabbit2socks npm install vmc push Would you like to deploy from the current directory? [Yn]: Application Name: mytwittersearch Application Deployed URL [mytwittersearch.cloudfoundry.com]:
Open a browser and navigate to http://mytwittersearch.cloudfoundry.com. The page will be blank initially, but watch for dynamically added tweets once you've deployed twitter2rabbit.
Simply use the provided manifest.yml file to deploy the application to Cloud Foundry. You need only to provide the application with a name.
cd twitter2rabbit mvn package vmc push Would you like to deploy from the current directory? [Yn]: Application Name: twitter2rabbit
Now just keep an eye on http://mytwittersearch.cloudfoundry.com and watch those new tweets pop up every 5 seconds!
If you would prefer to use Gradle to build twitter2rabbit, simply run "gradle installApp". Then update the path and command in the manifest.yml file:
applications: build/install/twitter2rabbit: ... command: bin/twitter2rabbit
