Overview Diagram

Getting Started

Step 1. Clone this repository:

$ git clone -o upstream -b master --single-branch \ labs-console
$ cd labs-console
$ npm install                   # Install project dependencies listed in package.json

Step 2. Launch Mongodb locally. You can do this with Docker via:

docker run --rm --detach -p 27017:27017 -P -e MONGODB_USER=mongo -e MONGODB_PASSWORD=mongo -e MONGODB_DATABASE=mongo -e MONGODB_ADMIN_PASSWORD=mongo openshift/mongodb-24-centos7
export MONGO_URL=mongodb://mongo:mongo@localhost:27017/mongo

Alternatively, you can use Homebrew to install Mongo DB on Mac OSX. Guide here

If running labs-console locally, you'll need to export the variables below before starting the front and back end services. For more information on what they mean and how you need to change them look at the variables section below.

cat << EOF > ~/labs-console-setvars.rc
export TOWER_URL=

Then source the file and ensure your environment variables are set

$ . ~/labs-console-setvars.rc
$ env |grep TOWER
 .... Should return the environment variable ....

Step 3. Build the front end UI

$ node run build

Step 4. Launch the node.js backend (ensure you have an instance of Mongo running first):

$ node server.js

You can now view the application running at

If you'd like to debug the UI with BrowserSync / HMR, run the UI in a new terminal:

$ node run.js

The app should become available at http://localhost:3000/.

You can also test your app in release (production) mode by running node run start --release or with HMR and React Hot Loader disabled by running node run start --no-hmr.

Environment Variables

The following environment variables should be set in OCP:

Build Variables

Key Value Description
BUILD_ENV production Ensures node_modules are pruned after build step

Deployment Variables

Key Value Description
OPENSHIFT_MONGODB_DB_URL mongodb://[user]:[pw]@mongodb.[project].svc.cluster.local/[db] Mongo CN
ADMIN_USER admin Default admin login
ADMIN_PASS password Default admin password
TOWER_URL https://[user]:[password]@[]/ Ansible Tower instance
ADD_INFRA_WORKFLOW_ID 0 Tower Add Infra Workflow ID
DESTROY_INFRA_WORKFLOW_ID 0 Tower Delete Infra Workflow ID
ADD_PROJECT_WORKFLOW_ID 0 Tower Add Project Workflow ID
NODE_TLS_REJECT_UNAUTHORIZED 0 Ignore self signed cert errors with Tower

How to Test

The unit tests are powered by jest.

$ npm run lint                  # Check JavaScript and CSS code for potential issues
$ npm run test                  # Run unit tests. Or, `npm run test:watch` or `npm run test:cov`

How to Build Production Assets

To build productions assets in public, run:

$ node run build --release
