TellForm Installation Instructions

Local deployment with Docker

Refer to docker_files.

AWS AMI Deployment

Prerequisites

Instructions here are tested on an Amazon Linux AMI. First, set up your fresh new AMI by setting the environment variables:

$ sudo vim /etc/environment

LANG=en_US.utf-8
LC_ALL=en_US.utf-8

Next, update and install build tools:

$ sudo yum update -y
$ sudo yum groupinstall "Development Tools" -y

Install docker

$ sudo yum install -y docker
$ sudo service docker start

To ensure docker can be run without sudo each time:

$ sudo usermod -a -G docker ec2-user
$ logout

SSH back in, and test that docker info runs successfully.

Install docker-compose

$ sudo -i
$ curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.15.0/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m` -o /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
$ sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
$ logout

Clone our repo

$ git clone https://github.com/datagovsg/formsg.git

Prepare .env file

The .env file for remote deployment (or production) is slightly different from that of local deployment. Create .env file at project root folder. Similarly, fill in MAILER_SERVICE_PROVIDER, MAILER_EMAIL_ID, MAILER_PASSWORD and MAILER_FROM. Note that now you have to fill in the public IP of your instance in BASE_URL.

APP_NAME=FormSG
APP_DESC=
APP_KEYWORDS=
NODE_ENV=production
BASE_URL=<PUBLIC IP OF YOUR INSTANCE>
PORT=4545
DB_PORT_27017_TCP_ADDR=<PRIVATE IP OF YOUR MONGODB HOST>
REDIS_DB_PORT_6379_TCP_ADDR=formsg-redis
username=formsg_admin
MAILER_SERVICE_PROVIDER=<TO-FILL-IN>
MAILER_EMAIL_ID=<TO-FILL-IN>
MAILER_PASSWORD=<TO-FILL-IN>
MAILER_FROM=<TO-FILL-IN>
SIGNUP_DISABLED=false
SUBDOMAINS_DISABLED=true
DISABLE_CLUSTER_MODE=true
RAVEN_DSN=
PRERENDER_TOKEN=
COVERALLS_REPO_TOKEN=

Install npm, bower and grunt

$ curl -o- https://raw.githubusercontent.com/creationix/nvm/v0.32.0/install.sh | bash
$ . ~/.nvm/nvm.sh
$ nvm install 6.11.2
$ npm install -g bower
$ npm install -g grunt-cli
$ npm install grunt

Install dependencies

$ npm install --production

Build docker image

$ docker-compose -f docker-compose-production.yml build

Run docker containers

$ docker run -d -p 27017:27017 -v /data/db:/data/db --name formsg-mongo mongo
$ docker-compose -f docker-compose-production.yml up

Note that unlike dev, mongo container is run separately from compose. Hence docker-compose down does not take down the mongo container each time. Your application should run on the default port 80, so in your browser just go to your public IP.
