cruise-db

cruise-db

A reference k/v store based upon cruise. It's the javascript analog to goraft/raftd.

Usage

To get a server running you'll want to run the server:

$ npm install -g cruise-db
$ cruise-db --port 4001
listening on 4001...

Then you can store values by posting to /db/:key

$ curl http://localhost:4001/db/some-key \
    -X POST \
    --data 'foo=bar'

And get them back from /db/:key

$ curl http://localhost:4001/db/some-key
{"foo":"bar"}

Clustering

Since the whole point of raft is consensus among a distributed system, the reference db can be run as a cluster. Simply pass the --join [-j] option with the connection string of the leader to add servers to the cluster

$ cruise-db
Listening on 4001...

$ cruise-db --port 4002 --join localhost:4001
Listening on 4002...

$ cruise-db --port 4003 --join localhost:4001
Listening on 4003...

You can query keys from the followers and they should stay in sync with any new keys posted to the leader.

Caveats

Just like raftd, the system does not do any sort of client forwarding. In order to submit new commands, you will have to post them to the leader node.
