We need to log TCP calls from the ship and give the user option to comment on the fly.
The main problem is that we don’t have time or resources to put in the server,
I decided to implement a quick and dirty log server with rest API, express, socket.io.
Install rest server from scratch :
sudo apt-get install curl curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_6.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install -y nodejs sudo npm i express -g sudo npm install -g yo sudo npm install -g generator-rest</pre>
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv 0C49F3730359A14518585931BC711F9BA15703C6 echo "deb [ arch=amd64,arm64 ] http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/ubuntu xenial/mongodb-org/3.4 multiverse" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-3.4.list sudo apt-get install -y mongodb</pre>
rest server :
mkdir logserver cd logserver yo rest
Next -> Next -> Next …

Overwrite src/api/index.js? overwrite force src/api/index.js
run the server for testing :
if you see: Express server listening on http://0.0.0.0:9000, in development mode
then we finish the first part 🙂
now we have a rest server to save the data to the local MongoDB server
