    HIRE CONNECT DEVELOPERS

    CONNECT platform is a graphical backend development platform aiming to speed up development of async logical microservices (like drastically). The core idea is that async logic is inherently a "Graph" and a representation via a "Chain" (i.e. text-based code) is extremely sub-optimal (so yes the "visuality" is not for non-programmers to be able to play around).

    Since not all parts of a microservice logic are necessarily async, CONNECT facilitates injecting sync pieces of code on the fly. However, since sync code is more computationally focused, it is probably less specific to the business logic of the microservice and more a general algorithm, hence probably the best place for it is at the lowest layers in the architecture. So generally it is advisable to attach sync code in form of packages.

    How to configure

    You can set config values directly from environment variables using a simple (and probably familiar) templating language. You can just specify the value in curly braces as folllows "{{ ENV_VAR || default_value }}".

    It is also possible to specify a request size limit through the request_limit config property.

    Socket support is enabled through the enable_sockets property. Socket.io support can be further configured through the socket_config config object. socket_config.use_redis activates support for redis for which socket_config.redis or socket_config.redis_pub and socket_config.redis_sub have to be specified to configure the redis connection for the pub/sub support (can be empty objects). Further information on how to use the socket.io-redis package can be found here.

    An example configuration is shown below for reference.

    {
      "config_from_env": "{{ CONNECT_CONFIG_FROM_ENV || default }} ",
      "request_limit": "100mb",
      "enable_sockets": true,
      "socket_config": {
        "use_redis": true,
        "redis": {},
        "redis_pub": {},
        "redis_sub": {}
      }
    }

    Environment variables that are already loaded by the provided launch script are shown in the following table.

    Variable Name What it does?
    CONNECT_PRODUCTION_MODE Run CONNECT platform in production mode
    CONNECT_ENABLE_SOCKET Enable socket.io support
