Boost Enterprise AppStore

First fully open source enterprise AppStore built on Swift

 

Free
Is your corporation strict on acquiring new tools? Boost is not just free, it has been open sourced under an Apache 2.0 license to make the SW approval smooth as possible.
Tags
Let your CI create tags for each build describing the content or functionality of the build for easy identification by your testers or customers.
Easy CI integration
Integrate with just any CI that supports cURL or has it's own upload mechanism. Just send the app binary and let Boost do the rest.
Self hosted
We made it super easy for you to run your own instance of Boost locally or in the cloud. Heroku? Docker? Kubernetes? AWS? Not a problem.

Deployment

This is a Swift app so the solution will work on any Mac or Ubuntu based server either in the cloud or on your local network database.

You can run Boost in a Docker instance which is pretty much platform independent. Additionally you will need a PostgreSQL database.

CI INTEGRATION

Basic installation using Docker

Firstly install docker, on a mac you can use Homebrew

brew cask install docker
on any other platform just follow these instructions.

Please note that Boost Docker image doesn't come with a PostgreSQL database so you need to have one at hand in order for the system to work. For more information oh how to install PostgreSQL please refer to the following page.

It is very easy to run Boost from a Docker on macOS. If you have your PostgreSQL database hosted locally you can run something like:

docker run \ 
	-e DB_HOST=docker.for.mac.host.internal \ 
	-e DB_USER=boost \ 
	-e DB_PASSWORD=aaaaaa \ 
	-e DB_NAME=boost \ 
	-p 80:8080 \ 
	liveui/boost

Your Boost instance will be available on a port 80

Specifications

You choose a URL to which Facebook will start sending POST requests with every message arriving in your Facebook page inbox. You can reply to users by generating a POST request with a message. This is the basic principle of chatbots.

For example, Victor sends a message to your Facebook page, saying: “I want to buy a blue T-shirt”. Facebook immediately generates a POST request at your URL which (when simplified) might look like this:

{
    "from": "Victor",
    "text": "I want to buy a blue T-shirt"
}
