Stelace platform runner

Open-source backend and API stack empowering dev teams to build, run and scale enduring platforms and marketplaces faster than ever.

Stelace as-a-service

The easiest way to deploy and leverage Stelace is with our official managed infrastructure. You can have a fresh platform backend up and running in minutes with high-availability deployment, automatic scaling, built-in test and live environments and admin dashboard. SLA and premium support are also available for Enterprise customers.

What is included

All APIs listed in docs and API Reference.

Two features are not open-source and certainly won’t be unless community and staff collaborate to make this happen:

That’s it!

This means you can freely switch between any of our SaaS plans and self-hosting at any time if you don’t need Stelace support or SLA and you’re ready to build your own admin UI, or you don’t need one 👓.

Note: for your app UI, we also crafted open-source front-end templates.

Setup

Docker

Please go to Docker website to install Docker CE/EE. Choose the right installation guide for your system.

Install yarn

Please refer to official instructions.

Clone

git clone https://github.com/stelace/stelace.git

Development

We recommend using pre-configured Docker images for databases to ease development.

It’s how Stelace team develops and tests API server.

Please note that you should use proper databases in production though.

Start development databases

Build the Docker images:

docker-compose build

And start the databases:

yarn docker:db

Shorthand for: docker-compose up -d elasticsearch postgresql redis

Run server

Run yarn to install dependencies.

Run the database migration to automatically create or update tables:

yarn knex migrate:latest # or `npm run knex migrate:latest`

You can also seed the database with hard-coded development API keys, so you can always use the same keys for development with local server.

Tip: use one of our Stelace Instant open-source templates for blazing fast full-stack development.

yarn seed

Now you can start the server with:

yarn start # or `npm start`

Develop with API server container

Stelace server is built on and deployed to Linux machines (Ubuntu), and you may have some trouble running server with another OS.

Docker can solve this with ease.

You just have to change host from 127.0.0.1 to elasticsearch, postgresql and redis in your .env file when using containerized API and databases.

Here is how you can install dependencies and init database:

# ephemeral container with --rm option
docker-compose run --rm api yarn && yarn seed

Note: project root directory is used as a Docker volume during development, including node_modules that are shared. You need to re-install dependencies when switching between plain server and server container setups.

Run:

docker-compose up -d

Useful commands to run from project root:

  • Follow logs of a API container

docker-compose logs -f api

  • Stop and remove containers

docker-compose down

  • Remove volumes (can be useful to solve dev issues with corrupted data or after database upgrade)

docker volume prune

Tip: Use yarn docker:db:reset to reset containers and volumes during development. This can be useful if you have any issue with corrupted database or redis store data, or if you want to upgrade databases (warning: containers data & volumes will be lost).

Tests

Tests are mostly integration tests with databases up and running to cover full API functionality.

Run npm run test or yarn test with ElasticSearch, PostgreSQL and Redis running and appropriate environment variables (hosts, ports, credentials).

You can use database Docker containers (see Using API server container) with appropriate host (127.0.0.1) and ports (e.g. PostgreSQL: 6543).

Tests files are run in parallel with AVA, using multiple schemas in PostgreSQL database.

Tests are quite CPU-intensive and you probably want to have 4 CPU cores to run them in good conditions.

Please find more details in server docs (testing).

Logs

Getting server logs in real-time can be very useful during development or tests.

You just have to set an environment variable:

ROARR_LOG=true yarn test

To see the output of console.log calls during AVA tests, add --verbose flag:

yarn test --verbose

Using API server container

Stelace team uses an API server Docker image in production, so do CI tests.

You can use an API server container to run tests locally too.

Ensure ElasticSearch, PostgreSQL and Redis are running once you’ve started database containers:

# Install dependencies used by API server container if not done yet
docker-compose run --rm api yarn
# Checking that databases are up and running
docker-compose run --rm api /bin/sh -c \
'until nc -z -v -w30 elasticsearch 9200 && nc -z -v -w30 postgresql 5432 && nc -z -v -w30 redis 6379
do
  echo "Waiting for PostgreSQL, ElasticSearch and Redis…"
  sleep 2
done';

Run tests with containerized API:

docker-compose run --rm api yarn test
# instead of standard local server with `yarn test`

Versioning

Stelace API public versions introducing breaking changes are publicly dated like 2019-05-20 but the repository itself follows semver rules. Dated version are the equivalent of major updates, as in semver major.minor.patch.

Old dated versions are supported thanks to transformers, inspired by great examples.

When introducing breaking changes (denoted by a new major version in this repository according to semver):

  • Dated version is added to src/versions/index.js
  • Appropriate transformers are added to request, response and validation subfolders
  • Changes are documented using a description field in request transformers
  • Conventional commit messages are used to keep track of breaking changes
