Build Status


Option 1: using docker

The quickest and easiest way is do use the docker-compose file that comes with this repo

First time starter

git clone
cd errbuddy
echo MYSQL_PASSWORD=i-changed-this > .env
echo SERVER_URL= >> .env
echo >> .env
docker-compose up

You should now be able to point your Browser to http://localhost:9000 and login with username admin and password admin. To Change the URL the app is using you can add SERVER_URL= to .env.

This way all needed Databases are started in docker.


git pull
docker-compose restart app

The app takes care of updating DB schemes.

Option 2: runnable jar



You will need to install and configure:

  • mysql/mariadb
  • elasticseach version 1.7.x
  • redis
  • java8


Download the example configuration from and align the Database configuration to your need e.g.

String mysqlHost = ""
String mysqlDatabase = "errbuddy"
String mysqlUser = "errbuddy"
String mysqlPassword = "123345"
String redisHost = ""
String redisPort = "6379"
String elasticsearchHost = ""
String elasticsearchPort = "9300" // it is important to use the transport port of elasticsearch and not the http api!

Application Startup

Download the latest war from Releases and start the war with:

java -jar -Dgrails.env=production -Derrbuddy.config.location=/path/to/config.groovy errbuddy.war

Option 3: deploy it to a Appserver (At your own risk)

The recommended Appserver for errbuddy is tomcat8. It might work on other appservers to but it is untested so far!


See Option 2 for general Database setup needed

Create Warfile

  • Clone the repo git clone
  • in build.gradle change compile "org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-tomcat" to provided "org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-tomcat"
  • if you have build the project before: rm -f .asscache && rm -f build/
  • run ./gradlew -Dgrails.babel.node.path=.nodejs/node-v10.10.0-linux-x64/bin/node -Dgrails.env=prod :clean :npmInstall :assetCompile :package
  • you might have to adjust the node path depending on your system. If you are on macOS it would be .nodejs/node-v7.4.0-linux-x64/bin/node. You can find out what to use here by first just running ./gradlew npmSetup and then check what's in ./.nodejs/
  • you will find the created warfile in ./builds/libs
  • Follow the instructions in configuration step of Option 2
  • move the aligned config.groovy to /opt/errbuddy/errbuddy.groovy
  • Deploy the warfile into your application server
