VaaS in Docker

VaaS in Docker is a preconfigured instance of VaaS varnish configuration tool. It is meant as a demo application that can help you understand how VaaS works.

How to run VaaS in Docker

By default, the container starts with no data loaded and with an admin user identified by admin password:

sudo docker run -p 80:80 -d -t allegro/vaas

You will now be able to log in to your container pointing your browser to the IP address of your docker host. If you want, you can start the container with selected username and password as follows:

sudo docker run -p 80:80 -d -t allegro/vaas <username> <email> <password> <api_key>

The last argument is optional. If you don't specify an api_key, a random one will be generated.

Starting VaaS in Docker with API access

First, create a data.yaml file that will only contain an admin user definition with a preconfigured password "admin" and api key "vagrant_api_key" (do not directly copy and paste the data.yaml file contents below, use cat to generate it):

cat > /var/tmp/data.yaml <<EOF
- fields:
    date_joined: 2014-12-08 09:23:38.799778+00:00
    first_name: ''
    groups: []
    is_active: true
    is_staff: true
    is_superuser: true
    last_login: 2014-12-08 09:23:45.199983+00:00
    last_name: ''
    password: pbkdf2_sha256\$12000\$yxB95qHh91x5\$oYW0Jrsb8jLGVo0tKypOPRap/wr+n+3TjkOP6cT9G4o=
    user_permissions: []
    username: admin
  model: auth.user
  pk: 1
- fields: {created: '2014-12-12 12:00:00+00:00', key: admin_api_key, user: 1}
  model: tastypie.apikey
  pk: 1

Then, run the container as follows:

sudo docker run -v /var/tmp/data.yaml:/data/data.yaml -p 80:80 -d -t allegro/vaas

You can now start populating the VaaS database with data, as described in VaaS API
