GalaxyFinder – Wormhole Mapper!

It's been awhile since I shared about the mapper I created on here. Since then, it has grown a lot and many new features have been added, improved, and redesigned. I thought it would be a good time to share what is available now. There is a lot so I might have missed something here or there but this is a really good chunk of what's available.

Technologies

GalaxyFinder is built on cloud scalable infrastructure and security. No PHP, Jquery front ends, or bootstrap. Here is what is used for this system: – Firebase Realtime Database – Each layer has it's own security read/write rules – Firebase Cloud Functions (~20) – BigQuery – Cloud Tasks – Firebase Hosting – React – React-Sagas – Redux – Kubernetes – Node WebApi – Full SSL (Managed by GCP) – Only used for custom JWT Authentication layer

  • 3 closed off container services

    • Golang kill service
    • Golang Aura discord bot
    • Node location service
  • Automated Deployment

    • Pushing to master runs a github workflow
    • Deploys it to firebase hosting
    • Triggers version update notifying all users a new version has been deployed

Static data uses information from Anoikis, and system information has been updated for stargates and security from SDE pretty regularly so Triglavian systems and stargates all work appropriately

Security

  • Access Lists!!
    • Give read and write access to corps, alliances, and characters on a per map basis
    • Can only be updated by map owners (corp/alliance directors, or private owner)

Signatures

  • The signatures run your basis for the map!
  • Clicking the home button will automatically set the signature to the parent system
  • Hovering over the info icon will show you who created the signature and who last edited it
  • Signatures NEVER go away, so you can see the last time you were in a system
  • double clicking a signature on a row will open the edit for that signature
