Node.JS and MongoDB on OpenShift

This git repository contains "farmstand", a sample application written on the OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service.

Running on OpenShift

Create an account at http://openshift.redhat.com/

Install the RHC client tools if you have not already done so:

sudo gem install rhc

Create a NodeJS application

rhc app create -a <appname> -t nodejs-0.6

Add MongoDB

rhc app cartridge add -a <appname> -c mongodb-2.0

Add this upstream repo

cd <appname>
git remote add upstream -m master git://github.com/openshift/farmstand-nodejs-mongodb-example.git
git pull -s recursive -X theirs upstream master

Then push the repo upstream

git push

That's it! You can now check out your application at:

http://<appname>-<domain>.rhcloud.com

OpenShift's pre-build hooks will populate your empty mongodb instance with the right database and the farmstand locations, originally taken from data.gov.
