What is the DEEP framework?

DEEP Framework is a full-stack web framework for building cloud-native web applications. Read more about it in the following post.

This framework is a core component of a larger ecosystem, called
Digital Enterprise End-to-end Platform.

Using DEEP Framework, developers get out-of-the-box:

Amazon Web Services is the only supported cloud provider at the moment.
Help needed to add support for Google Cloud Platform,
Microsoft Azure, and others.

Documentation is available as Developer Guide
and API Guide.

Learn hands-on how to build and deploy cloud-native web applications from
this blog post
and this tutorial video.

Step 1. Pre-requisites

npm install deepify -g

If you want to use deepify on Windows, please follow the steps from
Windows Configuration
before running npm install deepify -g and make sure all npm and deepify commands are executed
inside Git Bash.

Step 2. Install Microservice(s) Locally

deepify install github://MitocGroup/deep-microservices-helloworld ~/deep-microservices-helloworld

Path parameter in all deepify commands is optional and if not specified, assumes current
working directory. Therefore you can skip ~/deep-microservices-helloworld by executing
mkdir ~/deep-microservices-helloworld && cd ~/deep-microservices-helloworld before deepify install.

Step 3. Run Microservice(s) in Development

deepify server ~/deep-microservices-helloworld -o

When this step is finished, you can open in your browser the link http://localhost:8000
and enjoy the deep-microservices-helloworld running locally.

Step 4. Deploy Microservice(s) to Production

deepify deploy ~/deep-microservices-helloworld

Amazon CloudFront distribution takes up to 20 minutes to provision, therefore don’t worry
if it returns an HTTP error in the first couple of minutes.

Step 5. Remove Microservice(s) from Production

deepify undeploy ~/deep-microservices-helloworld

Amazon CloudFront distribution takes up to 20 minutes to unprovision. That’s why deepify
command checks every 30 seconds if it’s disabled and when successful, removes it from your account.
