TestOps: AWS Cloud Docker Compose Deployment & Testing
Client: Mathesar, Circle of Centre Innovation, USA.
As a team of TestOps professionals at Marmlax, we had the honor of working on a project with Mathesar, an open-source database interface that allows users to navigate their data with ease. Our objective was to enhance the installation process and user experience for new users by reviewing the docker-compose setup, HTTPS/HTTP setup, installation manual, and documentation.
To begin the project, we conducted an initial review of the Mathesar codebase and documentation to understand the system’s architecture and installation process. Using Docker and Compose, we were able to test the system and identify any installation issues, which we then provided feedback on. The Docker setup allowed us to replicate the production environment quickly and test various configurations.
We also reviewed the HTTPS/HTTP setup to ensure that the system was secure and accessible to users. We provided feedback on any security vulnerabilities and suggested improvements to ensure the system’s security.
After testing the system, we provided feedback on the installation manual to ensure that it was clear and concise. We suggested improvements to the manual to make it easier for users to install and configure the system.
Lastly, we focused on improving the new user experience through documentation. We created a step-by-step guide to help new users install and configure Mathesar. The guide included screenshots and detailed instructions, making it easy for users to follow along.
The project resulted in significant improvements to the Mathesar installation process and user experience. Our docker-compose setup helped us quickly identify and fix installation issues. We improved the HTTPS/HTTP setup to ensure the system’s security, and the installation manual was made clearer and more concise. The step-by-step guide for new users made it easier for them to install and configure Mathesar.
In conclusion, as a team of TestOps professionals at Marmlax, we were able to enhance the installation process and user experience for Mathesar users. By reviewing the docker-compose setup, HTTPS/HTTP setup, installation manual, and documentation, we were able to make significant improvements to the system. The improvements we made will make it easier for new users to get started with Mathesar and improve their overall experience with the system.
