Peanut

Deploy Databases and Services Easily for Development and Testing Pipelines.

Peanut provides a REST API, Admin Dashboard and a command line tool to deploy and configure the commonly used services like databases, message brokers, graphing, tracing, caching tools ... etc. It perfectly suited for development, manual testing, automated testing pipelines where mocking is not possible and test drives.

Under the hood, it works with the containerization runtime like docker to deploy and configure the service. Destroy the service if it is a temporary one.

Technically you can achieve the same with a bunch of yaml files or using a configuration management tool or a package manager like helm but peanut is pretty small and fun to use & should speed up your workflow!

Documentation

Run Peanut on Ubuntu

To run peanut on ubuntu, You can use the following bash script since it may take a while for a cold start. the script will install etcd, docker, docker-compose and peanut.

$ bash < <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Clivern/Peanut/main/deployment/linux/install.sh)

# Get The Public IP
$ curl https://ipinfo.io/ip
x.x.x.x

Peanut will be running on 80 port and UI on this URL http://x.x.x.x. Please open this file /etc/peanut/config.prod.yml and adjust the following line to be your Public IP or hostname

# App configs
app:
    ...
    # Hostname
    hostname: ${PEANUT_API_HOSTNAME:-127.0.0.1}

Then Restart Peanut

$ systemctl restart peanut

To make sure peanut is running, Run the following from your laptop to run some redis instances for 10 minutes.

# To provision redis services for 10 minutes
$ curl -X POST http://$PUBLIC_IP/api/v1/service -d '{"service":"redis","configs": {},"deleteAfter":"10min"}' -H 'x-api-key: ~api~key~here~'

{
  "createdAt": "2021-07-11T09:58:11.076Z",
  "id": "aadd5741-58c5-43c7-94fd-e6c0171fe8be",
  "service": "a8138f52-3ebb-4a34-b403-1be6ad481daf",
  "status": "PENDING",
  "type": "service.deploy"
}


# To list services including the host and port to use for connection
$ curl -X GET http://$PUBLIC_IP/api/v1/service  -H 'x-api-key: ~api~key~here~'

{
  "services": [
    {
      "id": "9d655cbe-caf1-4104-b8e4-b83fd569b509",
      "service": "redis",
      "configs": {
        "address": "127.0.0.1",
        "password": "",
        "port": "49156"
      },
      "deleteAfter": "10min",
      "createdAt": "2021-07-11T09:58:13Z",
      "updatedAt": "2021-07-11T09:58:13Z"
    },
    {
      "id": "a8138f52-3ebb-4a34-b403-1be6ad481daf",
      "service": "redis",
      "configs": {
        "address": "127.0.0.2",
        "password": "",
        "port": "49155"
      },
      "deleteAfter": "",
      "createdAt": "2021-07-11T09:58:12Z",
      "updatedAt": "2021-07-11T09:58:12Z"
    }
  ]
}

There is also a script to upgrade peanut.

$ bash < <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Clivern/Peanut/main/deployment/linux/upgrade.sh)

Linux Deployment Explained

Download the latest peanut binary. Make it executable from everywhere.

$ export PEANUT_LATEST_VERSION=$(curl --silent "https://api.github.com/repos/Clivern/Peanut/releases/latest" | jq '.tag_name' | sed -E 's/.*"([^"]+)".*/\1/' | tr -d v)

$ curl -sL https://github.com/Clivern/Peanut/releases/download/v{$PEANUT_LATEST_VERSION}/peanut_{$PEANUT_LATEST_VERSION}_Linux_x86_64.tar.gz | tar xz

Then install etcd cluster or a single node! please refer to etcd docs or bin directory inside this repository.

Install the virtualization runtime! By default peanut uses docker & docker-compose

$ apt-get update
$ apt-get install docker.io -y
$ systemctl enable docker

$ apt-get install docker-compose -y

Create the configs file config.yml from config.dist.yml. Something like the following:

# App configs
app:
    # Env mode (dev or prod)
    mode: ${PEANUT_APP_MODE:-dev}

The run the peanut with systemd

$ peanut api -c /path/to/config.yml

Deploy your first redis server!

$ curl -X POST http://127.0.0.1:8000/api/v1/service -d '{"service":"redis"}' -H 'x-api-key: ~api~key~here~'

To run the Admin Dashboard (Development Only):

Clone the project or your own fork:

$ git clone https://github.com/Clivern/Peanut.git

Create the dashboard config file web/.env from web/.env.dist. Something like the following:

VUE_APP_API_URL=http://localhost:8080

Then you can either build or run the dashboard

# Install npm packages
$ cd web
$ npm install
$ npm install -g npx

# Add api server url to frontend
$ echo "VUE_APP_API_URL=http://127.0.0.1:8000" > .env

$ cd ..

# Validate js code format
$ make check_ui_format

# Format UI
$ make format_ui

# Run Vuejs app
$ make serve_ui

# Build Vuejs app
$ make build_ui

# Any changes to the dashboard, must be reflected to cmd/pkged.go
# You can use these commands to do so
$ go get github.com/markbates/pkger/cmd/pkger
$ make package

The command line tool

In order to interact with peanut API server, you can either do basic API calls or use the provided command line tool. It is still not finished yet but it will be ready soon.
