    GateKeeper

    NodeJS virtual hosting server.

    What does it solve?

    Ever had 1 server and wanted to deploy 2 NodeJS webapps on it but you also had an Apache server already running on it?

    Well GateKeeper solves that problem!

    How does GateKeeper solve that?

    with GateKeeper you map the a domain to an app or proxy to a different server or port.
    Setting it up is really simple!

    How to set it up?

    Let's start with the basics!

    npm i -g gatekeeperjs

    Well now we've done that, we need to set up an GateData folder with our config and domains.

    The GateData folder

    A GateData folder looks for example like this:

    |- config.json  
    |  
    |-- domains  
      |  
      |-- example.com  
      | |  
      | |- main.js  
      |  
      |-- proxy.example.com  
        |  
        |- main.js
    

    The config.json is a really simple JSON file.
    which in most cases would look like this:

    {
    	"port":80
    }
    

    The domains folder is the folder where all the magic happens.
    Each folder inside that folder should represent the dns of the app in it.
    So in the example above I host the websites proxy.example.com and example.com. In each domain folder should be an main.js, which will be executed when your domain is initialized.

    the main.js looks for example like this:

    module.exports = {
    	request:function(req,resp){
    		resp.end("Wow!\n\nyou visited my domain!");
    	}	
    };
    

    The request function is exact the same as http.createServer().on("request",function(){}).

    So porting code to the GateKeeper is done in no time!

    Starting the server

    Starting is rather easy

    gatekeeper runat [path to your GateData folder]
    

    Still need help?

    I hope that was all the info you really needed!
