Light Portal Tutorial
Light-portal is the central point that provides entries for all light-platform supporting services. It is a website that integrates all services with a standard UI for users to utilize and manage these services. Behind the single-page application is a light-router instance that hosts all the virtual domains and proxy API requests to the backend services.
Most light-portal services are built on top of the light-hybrid-4j framework with Event Sourcing and CQRS. Some of the portal services like the light-oauth2 are built on top of the light-rest-4j framework.
When light-portal services are deployed with the light-hybrid-4j, there might not be a lot of volume in the beginning. We use one hybrid-command server to host all the services that update the portal and one hybrid-query server to host all the services that only read info from the portal. Each server can be scaled to multiple instances based on the read-only load or write-only load. Also, we have an option to move one or two hot services to a separate server instance and scale it accordingly later on.
Most services for the portal can be found in the light-portal repository on github.com/networknt. The UI can be found in view folder, and the UI final version is deployed to the light-config-test repository on github.com/networknt.
