Production cloud deployments of fig infrastructure with docker

Project description


ficloud alows to deploy your fig infrastructure to remote servers . Also it
provides all the services needed for hosting production apps.


- define your app config through Dockerfile and fig.yml
- easy deploy through git push
- pushing several versions of app (dev, staging, production ... etc)
- haproxy based balancer tcp
- easy switch balancer endpoint between app versions (ex swap prod and dev)
- persistent storage for containers
- easy copying persistence storage between containers (prod -> staging, etc)
- push and pull persistent volumes from your production server


Install docker:

Make sure you can run docker containers::

sudo docker run -i -t ubuntu echo -e "OK";

Install packages::

sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev
sudo pip install ficloud

Test that ficloud is working::

$ ficloud-server app-list

| App | Version | State |

Create ficloud user (you can pick any username)::

sudo useradd -s /bin/bash -d /home/ficloud -m ficloud
sudo su ficloud
cd /home/ficloud
mkdir ~/.ssh
vim ~/.authorized_keys # insert your ssh key and ssh key of your root user into this file
chmod -R go-rwx ~/.ssh

Test you can ssh into your server using ficloud account::


Make sure your root user can also access your server::

sudo ssh

Add ficloud user to docker group::

sudo usermod -a -G docker ficloud

Check ficloud can run docker now::

sudo su ficloud
docker run -i -t ubuntu echo -e "\033[0;32mFicloud can run Docker - OK\033[0m";

Install haproxy::
sudo apt-get install haproxy
sudo echo "ENABLED=1" | sudo tee /etc/default/haproxy
sudo service haproxy start
sudo curl | sudo tee /etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg.tpl

Now install incron to reconfigure haproxy, when you deploy new apps::

sudo apt-get install incron
sudo echo "root" | sudo tee /etc/incron.allow

Edit incrontab file and insert lines generated by inotify-dump in incrontab file::

ficloud-server inotify-dump

/home/ficloud/apps-conf IN_MODIFY,IN_CREATE,IN_DELETE,IN_NO_LOOP /usr/local/bin/ficloud-server balancer-dump /home/ficloud/apps-conf
/etc/haproxy/haproxy.cfg.tpl IN_MODIFY,IN_CREATE,IN_DELETE,IN_NO_LOOP /usr/local/bin/ficloud-server balancer-dump /home/ficloud/apps-conf

$ sudo incrontab -e

And the last thing. Allow ficloud to read-write any docker container volume:

ficloud ALL= NOPASSWD:/usr/bin/rsync

Install git:

sudo apt-get install git


Start by creating application that is working locally using fig.yml

Set working ssh account::

$ ficloud use

Create an application:

$ ficloud remote app-create foo

Deploy code:

$ git push master:prod

Check port number:

$ ficloud remote app-list

Configure balancer:

$ ficloud remote balancer set web:80@foo#prod

Push volume to deployment:

$ filcoud volume-push web/code@foo#master

Push volume from deployment:

$ filcoud volume-pull web/code@foo#master

Remote volume copy:

$ ficloud remote volume-copy web/code@foo#master foo#v1

Your app is deployed!
