Modular Architectures Made Easier with docker-compose

The Open GeoPortal is a Free and Open Source framework for rapidly discovering, previewing and retrieving curated geospatial data from multiple repositories. It implements a modular architecture, including a database, a search engine and several web applications.

While it can be argued that it is difficult to setup and run such a system, while collaborating with Tufts University, I had the opportunity to dockerize some of these applications and articulate them together in a docker composition.

docker-compose

The final result? the entire framework can be launched within a couple of minutes, with one single command: docker-compose up

If you don’t believe it, check the video bellow! 😉

If you want to try it yourself: git clone https://github.com/OpenGeoportal/Data-Ingest.git. The docker composition lives inside the docker folder.

Have fun with docker-compose! 🙂
