running a sissyfight server
The sissyfight server code runs under node.js. The original server is running on Heroku.
Sissyfight uses MySQL for persistent storage of user and score records, Redis for user sessions, and a service to send out emails, e.g. for password resets.
We use a MySQL server hosted by Dreamhost, but you can run your own or use any commercial MySQL service. To connect your MySQL server to your sissyfight node application, set the environment variable
SISSYFIGHT_DB=mysql|DB SERVER|DB NAME|DB USER|DB PASSWORD
DB_SERVER is the domain name of your database server,
DB NAME is the name of the database, and
DB USER and
DB PASSWORD are the username and password for that database.
In your MySQL database, you can set up the user, score, and text tables according to the structures in database_tables.sql.
We use a Redis server hosted by Redis Labs, but you can run your own or use any commercial Redis service. To connect your Redis server, set the environment variable
REDIS SERVER is the domain name of the Redis server,
PORT is the port number,
NAME is the username and
AUTH is the password or authentication token.
We use SendGrid's Email API to send emails, but you can use any email service that is supported by the Nodemailer module. To connect sissyfight to your your email server, set the environment variable
MAILSERVICE is the name of the email service you are using (see Nodemailer's documentation), and
PASSWORD are your authentication info for the email service.
