Centrifugo - Running Environment

Pre-requisite Reading

Relevant Config Values


The majority of the setup should already be done based on the parent Getting Started page, but ensure that the config.centrifugo.publicUrl and config.centrifugo.apiUrl are pointing towards the same host/port, and that the port is free.


In the main directory, there is a centrifugo-config.json.

Ensure that in allowed_origins that the value in is the array value.
Ensure that in proxy_connect_endpoint and proxy_subscribe_endpoint that the value in config.api.publicUrl is there. It should consist of api endpoints /api/centrifugo/connect and /api/centrifugo/subscribe in there respectively.
The value for proxy_subscribe should also be true.

For example, if my was http://localhost:7000, and my config.api.publicUrl was http://localhost:8080, then my centrifugo-config.json would look like this:

    "allowed_origins": [..., "http://localhost:7000", ...],
    "proxy_connect_endpoint": "",
    "proxy_subscribe_endpoint": "",
    "proxy_subscribe": true

Running the Environment

To reiterate from the parent Getting Started page, run the following command to start the centrifugo server in development mode:

npm run centrifugo

In the console, there should be no errors when running.

Local Centrifugo

This is only for if the above doesn’t work, which can happen in Windows/WSL.

Download the binary from latest releases, and place it in the parent directory.
Afterwards, go to scripts.centrifugo:local in package.json located in the parent directory, and ensure it has the same port listed in config.centrifugo.publicUrl and config.centrifugo.apiUrl. Once done, it should run using the following command

npm run centrifugo:local

In the console, there should be no errors when running.
