Example Voting App

A simple distributed application running across multiple Docker containers.

Getting started

Download Docker Desktop for Mac or Windows. Docker Compose will be automatically installed. On Linux, make sure you have the latest version of Compose.

Linux Containers

The Linux stack uses Python, Node.js, .NET Core (or optionally Java), with Redis for messaging and Postgres for storage.

If you're using Docker Desktop on Windows, you can run the Linux version by switching to Linux containers, or run the Windows containers version.

Run in this directory:

docker-compose up

The app will be running at http://localhost:5000, and the results will be at http://localhost:5001.

Alternately, if you want to run it on a Docker Swarm, first make sure you have a swarm. If you don't, run:

docker swarm init

Once you have your swarm, in this directory run:

docker stack deploy --compose-file docker-stack.yml vote

Windows Containers

An alternative version of the app uses Windows containers based on Nano Server. This stack runs on .NET Core, using NATS for messaging and TiDB for storage.

You can build from source using:

docker-compose -f docker-compose-windows.yml build

Then run the app using:

docker-compose -f docker-compose-windows.yml up -d

Or in a Windows swarm, run docker stack deploy -c docker-stack-windows.yml vote

The app will be running at http://localhost:5000, and the results will be at http://localhost:5001.

Run the app in Kubernetes

The folder k8s-specifications contains the yaml specifications of the Voting App's services.

First create the vote namespace

$ kubectl create namespace vote

Run the following command to create the deployments and services objects:

$ kubectl create -f k8s-specifications/
deployment "db" created
service "db" created
deployment "redis" created
service "redis" created
deployment "result" created
service "result" created
deployment "vote" created
service "vote" created
deployment "worker" created

The vote interface is then available on port 31000 on each host of the cluster, the result one is available on port 31001.

Note

The voting application only accepts one vote per client. It does not register votes if a vote has already been submitted from a client.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
