Traduora requires MySQL 5.7 and it is strongly recommended that you deploy it behind a reverse-proxy/load balancer that does TLS termination. Otherwise you risk exposing the JWT authentication tokens that it uses to authorize user and API access.
By default, the server will try to connect to MySQL on localhost port
3306, with a database called
tr_dev and with credentials username
root and empty password. To override this checkout the configuration section.
In particular you might want to override the folllowing environment variables:
NODE_ENV # set it to production TR_SECRET # generate a strong secret (used for signing JWT auth tokens) TR_VIRTUAL_HOST # i.e. traduora.example.com TR_DB_HOST # depends on your MySQL config TR_DB_PORT TR_DB_DATABASE TR_DB_USER TR_DB_PASSWORD
The quickest way to try traduora is by using our example docker-compose setup:
git clone https://github.com/traduora/traduora cd traduora docker-compose up
You can simply run our pre-built image:
docker run -d -p 8080:8080 --name traduora traduora/traduora:latest
You can override the environment variables like this:
docker run -d -p 8080:8080 -e TR_SECRET=mysupersecret -e TR_VIRTUAL_HOST=example.com traduora/traduora:latest
This will run traduora without any persistent storage. You will likely want to point it to the location of your MySQL database, to see the available environment variables checkout the configuration section.
We'll soon include a Helm chart for traduora, but you can easily deploy it with plain kubernetes manifests.
A simple example manifest which deploys traduora and the required MySQL 5.7 database together as a pod is localed in the repo at
deploy/k8s/traduora-preview.yaml, you can check it out as reference.
To override any of the configuration params, you can update the
configmap or the
secret resource as needed.
Once you are happy with your setup you can then just
kubectl apply -f $MANIFEST_FILE_PATH, like so:
kubectl apply -f deploy/k8s/traduora-preview.yaml
You can then connect to the pod locally by creating a tunnel on port
$POD_NAME with the deployed pod name):
kubectl port-forward -p 8080:8080 $POD_NAME
Or by deploying an ingress for it, for example:
# With GCP LB kubectl apply -f deploy/k8s/traduora-preview-ingress-gcp.yaml # With nginx kubectl apply -f deploy/k8s/traduora-preview-ingress-nginx.yaml
It is strongly recommended that you only serve traduora over TLS, you should configure according to your cloud environment
To build from source the pre-requisites are:
Node.js v10.13.0 and
yarn (or npm).
Clone the repo locally:
git clone https://github.com/traduora/traduora
Now just set the repo as the current directory and build:
cd traduora && bin/build.sh
After the build completes, you should have the build outputs in the
dist directory. You can copy those to your server and start it by running the following script:
The server will be (by default) listening on
0.0.0.0:8080. You might want to start the server with a service/process manager like
pm2 on production environments.
You can of course configure traduora according to your needs, to see the available environment variables checkout the configuration section.
