Under the hood

The backend is using Node.js. All documents are stored in a MongoDB and are indexed with ElasticSearch using the MongoDB river. Redis is optional, but can be used to provide a message queuing system to download medias in background.

The frontend is using AngularJS and for the visual is using LESS with Twitter Bootstrap 3.

Installation (the -not so- hard way)

This installation procedure is from scratch. You can find below an easiest installation procedure thanks to Docker!


Install Git, Node.JS, MongoDB and Redis (on Debian)

sudo aptitude install git nodejs mongodb-server redis-server imagemagick

Install Elasticsearch (and MongoDB river)

sudo aptitude install openjdk-7-jre wget
ES_HOME /opt/Elasticsearcharch
(cd /tmp && wget https://download.elasticsearch.org/elasticsearch/elasticsearchsticsearch/elasticsearch-0.90.10.tar.gz -O pkg.tar.gz && tar zxf pkg.tar.gz && mv elasticsearch-* $ES_HOME)
$ES_HOME/bin/plugin -install elasticsearch/elasticsearch-mapper-attachments/1.9.0
$ES_HOME/bin/plugin -install com.github.richardwilly98.elasticsearch/elasticsearch-river-mongodb/1.7.3

Connect to mongodb and enabled replicaset:

$ mongo
> cfg = { "_id" : "rs0", "version" : 1, "members" : [ { "_id" : 0, "host" : "localhost:27017" } ] }
> rs.initiate(cfg)

# And ElasticSearch (linked with MongoDb replica)
docker run --name elasticsearch --link mongodb:mongodb -d ncarlier/elasticsearch

# Get and run Keeper
docker run \
  --name="keeper-server" \
  --link mongodb:db \
  --link elasticsearch:elasticsearch \
  --link redis:redis \
  --env-file="./etc/env.conf" \
