ConfigServer

The simplest way to serve configuration over HTTP. Currently support YAML files as configuration DB.

Example config.yml

#config.yml

production:
  api:
    db_host: prod.mydb.com
    s3_bucket: some-bucket-prod
  nginx:
    server_name: www.me.prod

staging:
  api:
    db_host: staging.mydb.com
    s3_bucket: some-bucket-staging
  nginx:
    server_name: www.me.staging

You have two options for running the server:

Option 1: Running With Docker

ConfigServer has a docker image on Docker Hub. To use it create a config.yml file and mount it into the container:

$ docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -v /path/to/your/config.yml:/usr/src/app/config.yml nanit/config_server

Option 2: Running Directly On Your Machine

Install config_server Gem

$ gem install config_server

Note: You might need to run eval "$(rbenv init -)" in order to reload the config_server binary shim if you're using rbenv.

Run The Server

$ CONFIG_FILE=/path/to/config.yml config_server

Querying The Server

To get a value just chain the key path as your HTTP request path:

GET /production/nginx/server_name to get the corresponding keys in your config.yml file.

Some examples:

  1. In the first example we get the production db host for the api service
  2. In the second example we ask for a non existing key and get a 404 response
  3. In the third example we ask for a key which has a hash value. We get a JSON representation of it.

Usage Examples

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake spec to run the tests. You can also run bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
