Hi Dante, I think most of the documentation is there and working Ok, it’s just a few links that are broken. I was about to suggest that if you see any problem you hit the “file an issue” link … unfortunately it looks like this might be one of the broken ones … I say broken, it looks like it’s pointing to a recently depreciated repo that’s had it’s issues section turned off … hopefully this will be rectified shortly, at which point it’s probably the place to report stuff.
This documentation is an open-source community effort sponsored by Tavendo. Should you find errors or if you have suggestions, please file an issue.
In terms of momentum, I’ve invested the last 18 months in developing a web development framework around Crossbar and thus far it’s looking to be very successful - the first enterprise app sitting on top of it is now 12 demo’s, 12 signups.
Bit of a double edged sword, because it’s working so well, it’s keeping me busy, so you might find the lack of chatter here is a sign of success rather than an issue …
If anyone’s interested I have an end-to-end Ansible deployment for Crossbar (+ my app) onto Digital Ocean / Ubuntu 16.04.
Given a DigitalOcean API token it will set up a complete instance including creating the Droplet, DNS A record setup, Lets Encrypt SSL, Crossbar, Pypy, all dependencies, “svc” startup/shutdown, “twistd” application service start/stop, firehol firewall, monit monitoring (to a central M/Monit instance), postfix authenticated SMTP, and various other bits. (and it pulls the App from a GitHib repo) It’s not in a state where I can publish the whole thing, but I can certainly publish playbooks and methods for most of it if anyone wants bits.
The “only” real issue I’m having is the inability to run multiple cooperating routers for high availability - if anyone has any designs, plans, prototypes for this I’d love to have a look.
Short of that, I’m going to “need” something myself shortly so I might have to start getting creative …
