YoLocation

YoLocation is a sample project for using location data with Yo.

High level overview:

  • Written in Go (golang.org)
  • Uses Revel web framework (revel.github.com)
  • Autobuild docker container (mtsgrd/yolocation)

Try it out!

Send a Yo to STARBUCKSMAP to get a yoback link to the nearest Starbucks that's currently open.

To run your own instance, consider using a container-optimized Google Compute Engine image: https://cloud.google.com/compute/docs/containers/container_vms.

Howto

containers.yaml

$ cat > containers.yaml
version: v1beta2
containers:
- name: yolocation
  image: mtsgrd/yolocation
  ports:
  - name: http
    hostPort: [external port]
    containerPort: 8080
  env:
  - name: YO_API_URL
    value: http://www.justyo.co/yo/
  - name: YO_API_TOKEN
    value: string
  - name: GOOGLE_API_KEY
    value: string (must have Places API enabled)
^CTRL-D

$ gcloud compute instances create [new server name] \
    --project [project name]
    --image container-vm-v20140925
    --image-project google-containers
    --metadata-from-file google-container-manifest=containers.yaml
    --tags http-server
    --zone us-central1-a
    --machine-type f1-micro

Note: You must manually open the external port in the gcloud firewall.

Yo API Account

The Yo API account configuration determines the query used against the Google Places API. To configure the account to ping back the closest Starbucks location, use the following:

CALLBACK URL: http://[xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]:9000/starbucks/
