Publish a taxi project to Vyne

Configure a schema server with taxi projects


Overview

Vyne's Schema Server operates as a central aggregator of multiple schema sources.

In this guide, we'll look at a couple of common ways to publish a schema to the schema server. More detailed information is available in the Schema Server Reference Guide.

schema-server

Find your schema-server config file

By default, the Schema Server is configured by a file called repositories.conf in the directory where you launched the Schema Server from.

You may have overridden this when you launched the Schema Server, by specifying --vyne.repositories.config-file=....

If you're running one of our demo tutorials, the config file is at vyne/schema-server/schema-server.conf, relative to the docker-compose file you used.

Find and open the schema-server config file in your editor of choice.

Polling a file based taxi project

File based projects are typically used when running Vyne locally in a development environment. All of our guides use a file based project.

When using a file based taxi project, the schema server will watch the project for file system changes, and automatically republish up to Vyne.

Modify the configuration file, adding the below section.

file {
   paths=[
      "/path/to/project"
   ]
}
Use the right path

Ensure you add the path to the directory that contains the taxi.conf file you just created, but not the taxi.conf itself

  • Correct: /path/to/directory
  • Incorrect: /path/to/directory/taxi.conf

Save and close the config file, and restart the schema server. The taxi project should now show in the Schema Explorer.

For more information, see the reference guide on File Based taxi projects.

Polling a git based taxi project

In a production environment, it's more common to use a git repository for your taxi project, rather than using your local file system.

Modify the configyuration file, adding the below section.

git {
   checkoutRoot="/my/git/root"
   pollFrequency=PT30S
   repositories=[
      {
         branch=master
         name=my-git-project
         uri="https://github.com/something.git"
      }
   ]
}

Save and close the config file, and restart the schema server. The taxi project should now show in the Schema Explorer.
