Mep-Agent is a middleware that provides proxy services for third-party apps. It can help apps, which do not implement the ETSI interface to register to MEP, and realize app service registration and discovery. Mep-Agent will start at the same time as the application container, and read the content in the file conf/app_instance_info.yaml to automatically register the service.

git clone from mep-agent master repo
git clone https://gitee.com/edgegallery/mep-agent.git
build the mep-agent image
docker build -t mep-agent:latest -f docker/Dockerfile .
Prepare the certificate files and mepagent.properties, which contains ACCESS_KEY and SECRET_KEY, and run with
docker run -tid --name mepagent \ -e MEP_IP=<host IP> \ -e MEP_APIGW_PORT=8443 \ -e ENABLE_WAIT=true \ -v mepagent.properties:/usr/mep/mepagent.properties \ mep-agent:latest
More details of the building and installation process please refer to HERE.
Mep-Agent is written in Go language. In order to minimize the image, it adopts the process of statically compiling and then packaging, without relying on the basic Go language image, which greatly reduces the size of the image.
