mm-services-mdns

directory service to store connection information for remote peers

works with MicroMinion platform

Initialization

var MicroMinionPlatform = require('mm-platform')
var MulticastDNS = require('mm-services-mdns')
 
var platform = new MicroMinionPlatform()
 
var mdns = new MulticastDNS({platform: platform})

Messaging API

Data structures

nodeInfo: Javascript object with node information

  • boxId: base64 encoded public encryption key used by nacl
  • signId: base64 encoded public signature key used by nacl
  • connectionInfo: javascript dictionary with 1tp connection information

Published messages

self.transports.nodeInfo

Publishes connection information for remote node

var MicroMinionPlatform = require('mm-platform')
var MulticastDNS = require('mm-services-mdns')
 
var platform = new MicroMinionPlatform()
 
var mdns = new MulticastDNS({platform: platform})
 
platform.messaging.on('self.transports.nodeInfo', function(topic, sender, nodeInfo) {
  console.log(topic) // 'self.transports.nodeInfo'
  console.log(sender) // 'local'
  console.log(nodeInfo) // {boxId: <boxId>, signId: <signId>, connectionInfo: <1tp connectionInfo>}
})
 

self.transports.nodeInfoBootstrap

Publishes bootstrap information for remote nodes (used by DHT)

var MicroMinionPlatform = require('mm-platform')
var MulticastDNS = require('mm-services-mdns')
 
var platform = new MicroMinionPlatform()
 
var mdns = new MulticastDNS({platform: platform})
 
platform.messaging.on('self.transports.nodeInfo', function(topic, sender, nodeInfo) {
  console.log(topic) // 'self.transports.nodeInfo'
  console.log(sender) // 'local'
  console.log(nodeInfo) // {boxId: <boxId>, signId: <signId>, connectionInfo: <1tp connectionInfo>}
})

self.transports.myNodeInfo

Uses our own node information to broadcast on local network through mdns

You'll never need to send this message since this is triggered from the platform object

var MicroMinionPlatform = require('mm-platform')
var MulticastDNS = require('mm-services-mdns')
 
var platform = new MicroMinionPlatform()
 
var mdns = new MulticastDNS({platform: platform})
 
var nodeInfo = {
  boxId: platform.directory.identity.getBoxId()
  signId: platform.directory.identity.getSignId()
  connectionInfo: platform.directory._connectionInfo
}
 
platform.messaging.send('transports.myNodeInfo', 'local', nodeInfo)

self.transports.requestBootstrapNodeInfo

Request message that triggers 'nodeInfoBootstrap' responses

Needed if you want to implement your own directory service or want to discover local nodes

var MicroMinionPlatform = require('mm-platform')
var MulticastDNS = require('mm-services-mdns')
 
var platform = new MicroMinionPlatform()
 
var mdns = new MulticastDNS({platform: platform})
 
platform.messaging.send('transports.requestBootstrapNodeInfo', 'local', {})
