Microservices Architectured App

Event-driven microservices architectured e-commerce app created using Express.js, Typescript, NATS-Streaming and Next.js

Overview:

This product is an e-commerce web application designed for buying and selling tickets for various live events. It is built on a microservices architecture where multiple services handle different functionalities like authentication, orders, payments, and tickets. The use of microservices architecture makes the app more durable, fault-tolerant, and highly available. It leverages technologies such as Next.js, Express.js, MongoDB, Mongoose, Typescript, Stripe, Jest, Docker, Kubernetes, NATS Streaming, and Bull.js.

Features:

  • Microservices Architecture: The app is structured into multiple services communicating asynchronously via an event bus.
  • Authentication Service: Handles user authentication and authorization using JWT and cookie-based authentication.
  • Payment Handling: Integrates with Stripe for processing user payments.
  • Ticket Management: Manages tickets for different live events in the city.
  • Event-Driven Communication: Services communicate via an event bus (NATS Streaming) for seamless interactions.
  • Testing Support: Utilizes Jest and Supertest for testing the application functionalities.
  • Containerization and Orchestration: Uses Docker for containerization and Kubernetes for managing container orchestration.
  • Continuous Development: Skaffold command line tool facilitates continuous development for Kubernetes-native applications.

Installation:

  1. Install dependencies using npm:
    npm install
    
  2. Start the development server:
    npm run dev
    

Summary:

This e-commerce web application for buying and selling event tickets is built on a microservices architecture to ensure durability, fault tolerance, and high availability. Leveraging a range of technologies like Next.js, Express.js, MongoDB, Stripe, Docker, Kubernetes, and more, the app provides a robust and scalable solution for its users. The division of functionalities into separate services allows for efficient communication and handling of various aspects of the application, making it a modern and reliable platform for event enthusiasts.
