Demo Project

  • Available via kickstart skel:
    • node_expresjs: Basi hello world example with nodejs, nodemon

The Container comes with an nginx reverse_proxy mapping :8080 -> :80


The container will catch SIGTERM signal and will gracefully shutdown if the webserver is idle or non-responsive

Steps executed when a SIGTERM signal is received

  • Get the server status from the route /nginx-status
  • Check the http response status code
    • if status code is not 200, terminate the container immediately(Web Server is already not responding)
  • else (status code is 200), check in the http response body for requests being processed
    • if no requests are pending kill the container
    • else sleep 2 seconds and start the steps from the beginning and will continue until the container is terminated with a SIGKILL signal


Code debugging

To enable debugging, start nodemon with the --inpect= parameter.

This will start the debugger on Port 4200.
