Dgraph-ratel not found

Report a Dgraph Bug

/run.sh: line 16: dgraph-ratel: command not found

What version of Dgraph are you using?


when running
docker run --rm -it -p “8080:8080” -p “9080:9080” -p “8000:8000” -v ~/dgraph:/dgraph “dgraph/standalone:v21.03.0”

this appears
/run.sh: line 16: dgraph-ratel: command not found

causing me to not be able to connect to localhost:8000 and use the ratel tools

Dgraph Version
$ dgraph version

Have you tried reproducing the issue with the latest release?

What is the hardware spec (RAM, OS)?

Steps to reproduce the issue (command/config used to run Dgraph).

Expected behaviour and actual result.

Check out the release notes, it is no longer packaged in the same docker image, just use play.dgraph.io

@Connor: You can connect to your local Dgraph instance using the public play.dgraph.io UI.

@iluminae: However, what is the proposed solution to use the Ratel UI when you are disconnected from the internet, e.g. in a corporate network?

From the release notes:

Should you still need to run a local copy of Ratel, you can compile a version from the Ratel source code 1 (see building and running Ratel). For building a Docker image, you can copy the dgraph-ratel binary into a docker image based on Ubuntu or other Linux operating system docker images.

@joaquin has published the Ratel image Docker Hub

Hi, I suggest you will update the documentation and the getting started page so it would be easier to find a solution. Here, I created a topic for this issue: Get started page is not up to date

Opps, for dgraph/standalone:v21.03.1, there is no dgraph-ratel bin file.

But the /run.sh still has command

# TODO properly handle SIGTERM for all three processes.
dgraph-ratel & dgraph zero & dgraph alpha

FYI for whomever would update the Docker image and test it, here’s a little snippet:

#!/usr/bin/env bash
set -x


# SIGUSR1-handler
my_handler() {
  echo "my_handler"

# SIGTERM-handler
term_handler() {
  if [ $pid -ne 0 ]; then
    kill -SIGTERM "$pid"
    wait "$pid"
  exit 143; # 128 + 15 -- SIGTERM

# setup handlers
# on callback, kill the last background process, which is `tail -f /dev/null` and execute the specified handler
trap 'kill ${!}; my_handler' SIGUSR1
trap 'kill ${!}; term_handler' SIGTERM

# run application
node program &

# wait forever
while true
  tail -f /dev/null & wait ${!}

Souce: Trapping signals in Docker containers | by Grigorii Chudnov | Medium

Another best practice is to wrap the service with an small init script that handles the signals, e.g. tiny:
