ndislocate - A distributed service locator, written on top of Node.js

June 17, 2010 by


This looks pretty cool! My coworker, Vijay, showed me this. Built on node.js. A simple distributed service locator. Well… a service locator service. Like a factory factory? Whatever, I want to check it out…

git clone git://github.com/ry/node
cd node
#WARNING: it didn't pick up my libevent properly,... whatever though, I'm just seein' how it works
./configure && make && sudo make install
cd ..
git clone git://github.com/pquerna/ndislocate
cd ndislocate
echo "{ }" > test.json
./ndislocate.js this_isnt_even_read_so_why_bother_requiring_a_third_param

Voila! It told me that it found my local HTTP, HTTPS and SSH servers. I’ll fiddle more tomorrow, I suppose.
