This project builds a modular microservice architecture in typescript.

UNDER DEVELOPMENT! - Needs a repository with an example implementation, some of the links are not working yet!

Illustrated in the figure below is a database (module) microservice who registers at the server ServiceRegistry. A connector module recives and requests and sends back responses to a client where a map maps the request to a specfic microservice such as the database microservice. Eventually resolvers is gonna be added to the ServiceRegistry so that microservices can be resolved with other than local methods etc webhooks.


Using this module

This module exists on npm. To use it run:

npm install @ords/core --save

The module includes ShortenAct the purpose of this is to simplify calls made to the ServiceRegistry.

Global dependencies

  • nodejs
  • typescript
  • typings
  • mocha

Getting started

Initially install dependencies by running:

npm run build-env

Whenever you have made changes you can run the following command

npm run build-depoly


In order to test the project you can now run:

npm test

To clean the project do:

npm run clean


Contributions can be made to either modules (microservices), maps or this repo. Module and maps contribution is managed in http://github.com/medsolve/ords-modules and http://github.com/medsolve/ords-maps resspectivly.

Core modules implements proposals from the proposals directory. Essentially all kinds of modules can be delivered but modules following the proposals will be entirely interopable. Below are general rules for code contribution:

  • Use camleCase instead of underscore for namespace, variables and functions
  • constants CAPITALIZED
  • Interfaces, Abstract, Classes, Types all with conventional naming starting with a capital letter
  • Document your code with comments
  • Write at least unit tests
  • Follow established directory structure

Variables or anything named with a _ prefix is usually instanciated automaticly somewhere in the core a module and should therefore not be manipulated. An example is the _meta property that is attacted to the Request as a microservices is carried out.


We use schemantic versioning. We do no introduce backwards compatible breakable code without upgrading the software version to a major release.
