    trail-hapi-server is a ready to use Hapi server with the trail-hapi-plugin registered.

    It also provides a local instance of Swagger UI to easily check the REST API documentation.


    To install via npm:

    npm install @nearform/trail-hapi-server


    npx run trail-hapi-server

    This will start a server on localhost:8080. Swagger UI documentation is accessible at http://localhost:8080/documentation/.


    The server looks for the following environment variables:

    • TRAIL_DB_HOST: The hostname for the trail database.
    • TRAIL_DB_PORT: The port number for the trail database.
    • TRAIL_DB_NAME: The name of the trail database.
    • TRAIL_DB_USERNAME: The username for the trail database.
    • TRAIL_DB_PASSWORD: The password for the trail database.
    • TRAIL_DB_POOL_SIZE: The size of the trail DB pool.
    • TRAIL_DB_TIMEOUT: The trail database idle timeout, in milliseconds.
    • TRAIL_HTTP_HOST: The hostname the HTTP server is bound to.
    • TRAIL_HTTP_PORT: The port the HTTP server is bound to.
    • TRAIL_LOG_LEVEL: The logging level; defaults to warn.
    • TRAIL_DISABLE_REST_API: Switch indicating whether to disable the REST API.
    • TRAIL_DISABLE_GRAPHQL: Switch indicating whether to disable the graphql endpoint.

    These can also be defined using a .env file.

    The server also takes the following command line options:

    • --dbHost <host>: Set the database host name; defaults to localhost.
    • --dbPort <port>: Set the database port; defaults to 5432.
    • --dbName <name>: Set the database name; defaults to trails.
    • --dbUsername <user>: Set the database username; defaults to postgres.
    • --dbPassword <password>: Set the database password; defaults to postgres.
    • --dbPoolsize <size>: Set the database pool size; defaults to 10.
    • --dbTimeout <ms>: Set the database pool timeout, in milliseconds; defaults to 30000.
    • --httpHost <host>: Set the HTTP hostname; defaults to localhost.
    • --httpPort <port>: Set the HTTP port; defaults to 8080.
    • --logLevel <level>: Set the logger level; defaults to warn`.
    • --noRESTAPI: Switch to disable the REST API.
    • --noGraphQL: Switch to disable the graphQL endpoint.

    Command line options take precedence over environment variable settings.
