Running the dev environment using docker-compose

Deploying the development environment

cd data-detective-airflow
cp .env.example .env
randstr=`shuf -zer -n32 {A..Z} {a..z} {0..9} | tr -d '\0'`
echo "SECRET_KEY=${randstr}" >> .env
docker-compose up -d

It is possible to check data-detective-airflow with Celery Executor as follows:

docker-compose -f docker-compose.CeleryExecutor.yml up -d

This services will be launched:

  • redis - queue storage
  • webserver - portal
  • scheduler - scheduler that runs tasks
  • flower - view current queues
  • worker - a service that runs tasks, scalable, 2 instances

To run autotests, run the command

docker-compose -f docker-compose.tests.yml up --build --exit-code-from=tests

For all Executor, postgres is used as a metadata repository (metadb). In a production environment, it is advisable to use the Celery Executor option.
