Simple thinx.cloud HTTP to HTTPS proxy server for your Raspberry Pi or another node.js capable machine.
### Standalone node.js app
node.js installed as a prerequisite.
git clone https://github.com/suculent/thinx-connect.git cd ./thinx-connect/ npm install .
### Docker image
There is also Docker image available here for installation via
docker pull suculent/thinx-connect
If you have local DNS server, make sure the IP you're running this proxy at is referenced with a
thinx.local name. Each THiNX device firmware should check this DNS name first before accessing the thinx.cloud backend directly.
You can run the proxy-server simply with
node app.js, but it's recommended to use some process-manager like
forever (warning: installing forever on Raspberry Pi 3 may take more than 30 minutes):
[sudo] npm install forever -g forever -o out.log -e err.log app.js
Running with Docker
THiNX-Connect is also available as a Docker image. The repository provides a
Dockerfile to build the THiNX-Connect HTTP/HTTPS proxy.
Warning: The binary works on Ubuntu 14.04 and the build is based on Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty.
Build the docker image from this repository
docker build -t thinx-connect .
Once the container is built successfuly create a container from the image
docker create --name thinx-connect thinx-connect
Start the container and keep it running (in background)
docker run -itd suculent/thinx-connect node /thinx-connect/app.js && bash
Start the container and keep it running (in foreground while inspecting the log)
docker run -p 127.0.0.1:7442:7442 -p 127.0.0.1:7443:7443 -p 127.0.0.1:1883:1883 -p 127.0.0.1:8883:8883 -itd suculent/thinx-connect node /thinx-connect/app.js > nohup.out & tail -f nohup.out
docker run -p7442:7442 -p7443:7443 -p1883:1883 -p8883:8883 -itd suculent/thinx-connect nohup forever /thinx-connect/app.js && tail -f nohup.out
