Gopher Quotes

Yet another application designed as a “MicRoserVice” for demo purposes. Gopher quotes offers users insghtful quotes ✍? from their favourite gophers around the world. ?

Architecture ?

Gopher Quotes is currently composed of three services, all of which communicate over HTTP.

Setup using Docker-Compose ?

Starting the service is as easy as:

docker-compose up

Setup using Kubernetes

if you’re into that kubernetes thing , I have provided some manifests in the deployments/k8s directory. Edit the following lines in ingress.yaml

 - host: "yourhostordomainname"

Now you can

kubectl apply -f deployments/k8s

API endpoints

The gopher quotes API exposes the two enpoints

GET /quotes
POST /create
GET /stats
