Discussion Middleware Setup

Discussion middleware is middleware proxy service, which is having all discussion forum apis.

How to setup discussion middleware.


Clone the discussion middleware repo from https://github.com/Sunbird-Ed/discussions-middleware.git


Execute npm install command.


add the environment variable in environmentHelper.js file.

let localEnvVariables = {
    NODEBB_SERVICE_URL: env.nodebb_service_url || 'http://localhost:4567', 
    Authorization:  env.authorization_token || 'd8402b15-1d5f-4d84-9fae-595ef805f287', // Your local nodebb Master token
    nodebb_api_slug: env.nodebb_api_slug || '/api'

Note: If your testing the DF-lib using demo application. You have to use user token instead of master token. Once we implemented DF-middleware cache then onwards no need to change the token. we can use master token itself.


Run the discussion middleware using the command npm run start. Discussion-middleware will run on port 3002.
