Docker support

1. Build docker container yourself

$ docker build -t videk .

2. Pull from Docker Hub

$ docker pull sensorlab6/videk

3. Optionally create persistent data storage

$ docker create --name datavidek videk

4. Run docker container

Forwarding docker port 80 (and 443 for HTTPS) to your host port. Optionally using data container, host SSH key and domain name setup. If WS address is not the same as domain use WS and optionally use HTTPS. Rundeck password should also be changed and ansible user set. Optionally you can setup github webhook port and tokens. GITHUB_TOKEN is used to push build results to github release and SECRET_TOKEN is secret which is shared with each webhook request. Finally set your gmail account to send monitoring alerts.

$ docker run -p 80:80 (-p 443:443) --volumes-from datavidek \

Installation in Linux

Installation was performed on Ubuntu 12.04 & Ubuntu 14.04 .


SMS requires git, node.js, mongodb and npm.

1. Install git

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install git

2. Install node.js

We will cover two different methods of how to install node.js. First is using a apt package manager and the second is using a PPA (personal package archive) .

Install the Distro-stable version

Install the Distro-stable version using apt package manager. This version of node.js is not the latest, but it should be stable.

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install nodejs
$ sudo apt-get install npm
Install using a PPA

Second method is to add PPA maintained by Chris Lea. This will give you more recent versions of node.js than the official repositories.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:chris-lea/node.js
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install nodejs
Test node.js
$ echo -e '// Call the console.log function.\nconsole.log("Hello World");' |  tee test_node.js
$ node test_node.js

As result you should get "Hello World" .

3. Install MongoDB

Import the public key

$ sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv 7F0CEB10

Create a list file for MongoDB

$ echo 'deb dist 10gen' | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb.list

Reload local package database

$ sudo apt-get update

Install the MongoDB packages

$ sudo apt-get install mongodb-org

Start the MongoDB
