taco-nginx

Bash script that runs a service and forwards a subdomain to it using nginx when it listens to $PORT

npm install -g taco-nginx

We recommend using latest stable nginx (>1.8.0). If you are on Ubuntu LTS for example you may need to do this:

add-apt-repository ppa:nginx/stable
apt-get update
apt-get install nginx

Usage

First write a service (in any language) similar to this

var http = require('http')
var server = http.createServer(function (req, res) {
  console.log('Got request!', req.url)
  res.end('hello world\n')
})

server.listen(process.env.PORT, function () {
  console.log('Server is listening...')
})

Assuming the above file is called server.js and you have nginx running you can now do

taco-nginx --name my-service node server.js

taco-nginx will now spawn node server.js, wait for it to listen to the port specified in $PORT and then have nginx route requests to my-service.* to it.

If you don't specify --name it will see if you have a package.json and use the name field

taco-nginx node server.js # uses name from package.json

For a full list of options run

taco-nginx --help
