Kuby AnyCable

Kuby plugin to deploy AnyCable applications.

This plugin allows you to install all the required AnyCable components to a Kubernetes cluster.

Installation

Add to your project:

# Gemfile
gem "kuby-anycable"

Usage

Here is the minimal configuration:

# kuby.rb

require "kuby-anycable"

# ...

Kuby.define("my-app") do
  environment(:production) do
    #...

    kubernetes do
      add_plugin :rails_app do
        # ...
      end

      add_plugin :anycable_rpc
      add_plugin :anycable_go
    end
  end
end

What happens under the hood:

  • RPC service definitions are created:
    • The current rails_app image is used for the container.
    • The rails_app Config Map is attached to the RPC container.
  • AnyCable-Go service definitions are created:
    • The latest stable image is used for anycable-go.
    • Connected to the RPC service (using DNS load balancing by default).
    • Redis URL is inferred from the RPC service ANYCABLE_REDIS_URL or REDIS_URL.
    • Concurrency settings are adjusted according to the number of RPC servers and their concurrency settings.

Of course, you can customize the resources:

add_plugin :anycable_rpc do
  replicas 2
  # Provide Redis URL explicitly.
  redis_url "redis://custom_url"
  # Override gRPC server port (but why?)
  port 50051
  # Expose additional port named 'metrics'
  # (e.g., if you use Prometheus exporter).
  # Disabled by default.
  metrics_port 3030
  # Shortcut for ENV['ANYCABLE_RPC_SERVER_ARGS__MAX_CONNECTION_AGE_MS']
  max_connection_age 300000
  # Shortcut for ENV['ANYCABLE_RPC_POOL_SIZE']
  rpc_pool_size 30
end

add_plugin :anycable_go do
  replicas 2
  # Provide Redis URL explicitly.
  redis_url "redis://custom_url"
  # Override web server port (but why?)
  port 8081
  # Metrics port (enabled by default and exposed as "metrics")
  metric_port 5001
  # Provide path to RPC server explicitly
  rpc_host "my-app-rpc:50051"
  # WebSocket endpoint path
  ws_path "/cable"
  # AnyCable-Go Dockerimage
  image "anycable/anycable-go:1.1"
  # Specify ENV['ANYCABLE_RPC_CONCURRENCY'] explicitly
  rpc_concurrency nil
  # Use a separate hostname for AnyCable-Go
  # (disabled by default)
  hostname nil
end

Using with Alpine images

Installing Ruby deps on Apline images requires some special attention to gRPC-related gems (tl;dl we need to build them from source).

Kuby AnyCable comes with a special package, which installs everything for you (so you shouldn't use any hacks yourself). You need to add a single line:

Kuby.define("my-app") do
  environment(:production) do
    docker do
      # ...
      distro :apline
      package_phase.add("anycable-build")

      # ...
    end

    # ...
  end
end
