Protocol capable of P2P (master to master) syncing key-value datastores. using c++ high performance web server with a redis backend. The path to requests is /rpc and takes only POST requests in JSON-RPC 2.0. The methods that have been implemented are:

  • datastorePut({ collection: String, changes: [Object] }) -> : sync objects to the server.
  • datastoreGet({ collection: String, all: Boolean, ids: [String] }) -> [Object]: retrieve all of the objects which are newer on the server.
  • datastoreMeta({ collection: String }) -> [id,mtime]: get last modification times of all objects upstream.

Arguments explanation:

  • collection: this is a string identifier of the collection we want to sync.
  • changes: this is an array of objects to save in the collection; every object can be anything (JSON object). Has three special properties:
    • _id: (always required) is the object key/id.
    • _mtime: is the last time the object was modified. This is a POSIX time in millisecons.
    • _delete: is set to true if we want to remove this object from the collection. If not it can be either false or not included.
  • all: this is a boolean which, when set to true, makes datastoreGet return all objects in the collection
  • ids: array of strings, specifies which objects to fetch from the database.

The implementation is integrated in Travis-CI, that will generate and publish automatically containers to easy deploy the application.


Download the container from the docker-hub

docker pull kanekotic/p2s

And execute with the next command

docker run -p <service port> -e PORT=<service port> -e REDIS_IP=<redis ip> -e REDIS_PORT=<redis port> --net=host kanekotic/p2s


Current development enviroment is based on un an Ubuntu machine. Please follow the next steps to setup the enviroment:

  • Basic building will require the next packages
sudo apt-get install redis-server libboost-all-dev gcc-5 g++-5 libgtest-dev cmake qt5-qmake qt5-default qtbase5-dev qttools5-dev-tools
  • To build gtest run
cd /usr/src/gtest
sudo cmake .
sudo cmake --build . 
sudo mv libg* /usr/local/lib/
  • you will also need to pull the dependency for the redis client trought
git clone 
cd cpp_redis 
mkdir build 
cd build 
cmake .. 
make -j 
sudo make install -j 
sudo cp /usr/local/lib/ /usr/lib/
  • the code can be build using the next command line on the directory


  • Use Qt Creator as development enviroment, it can be installed by:
sudo apt-get install qtcreator
  • Install and use Postman for integration testing (./test/Test_P2S_Postman.json).
