Heh, happens when you're focused on adjusting code you have and not stepping back.  No worries!

just a heads up for the future - whenever your commit message includes `"also adds <something> unrelated"`, it should probably be its own commit.

autoland: add nginx config and port to see how ui is being served from compiled files instead of the dev server (bug 1344004).

::: commit-message-e38ad:1

> +autoland: add nginx config and port to see how ui is being served from compiled files instead of the dev server (bug 1344004). r?smacleod

Port 8888 is the UI devserver which is useful for normal development (quickly changing stuff and so on), port 8889 serves the UI directly from the build files, that port is useful for making sure that the UI files are served correctly similar to how they will be served in production. 99% of the time you can just use port 8888. If you want to double check your work before you push, run `docker-compose run yarn build` then `docker-compose up` then go to ipaddress:8889 to see everything working. 

For this patch the way to check it is "does everything work exactly like before", if it isn't working you should see a blank page or API requests won't work.

I agree this is ugly; I'll spend some time today to see if there's a better way to hack neutrino.

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/116790/#review119764

I don't like this strategy.  My main issue is that it's too reliant on ops.  Asking the ops person to change a `.js` file's string, even automating it, is too much because ops people are hard to get a hold of.  I propose this:

1.  We have a `config.js` file that we use locally
2.  We have a `config-prod.js` file that will be used in prod
3.  We have `yarn build` for local and `yarn buildprod`, the later copying `config-prod.js` over to the build folder once build is complete, i.e.:

```js
"buildprod": "neutrino build && cp config-prod.js build/config.js", // or wherever it lives
```

Steven, what are your thoughts on this?  That way ops only *ever* has to do `buildprod` and not worry about anything else.

https://reviewboard.mozilla.org/r/116790/#review119764

The values that go in this config file should not change, unless the actual server this UI points at changes URL. So I *guess* either work, but ops will almost *never* change this file, if they do it will be because of something they did.

The file will also be generated by a template + puppet script that ops runs, they won't be poking at the file themselves. So I don't think we need to worry about any of that.

Your suggested approach also seems *more* complex to me... thoughts?

What if *we* want to add more to the config file?  Another key for this or that?  Then we have to notify ops?  We'll know if they want to swap around addresses so we can make a quick commit; it's much easier for them to get a change from us than us from them.

I can't think of any other configuration the UI would need, but that you'd want to have to rebuild the entire image and redeploy to change. In that case why not just make it a constant somewhere else.

The purpose of this config was to hold values that would need to change if you were deploying the UI to staging, or dev, or a different instance out there. We need to be able to point it at different backends without rebuilding the entire container. Ops should be able to point it at our staging backend when it's deployed to staging.

Why do you have a node_modules folder anyway? Is this change really needed?

If you're not developing in docker, we should figure out a way to fix that.

All the commands and things are run through docker, in this case I have a node_modules folder so I can dive into the source of neutrino to figure out what it is doing. So the node_modules here isn't for executing code, but, rather for me to have a local copy of the source of our dependancies.

We don't need to do the `||` stuff now that we're copying, right?  Also, instead of `const`, I think it would be helpful if we used `window.AUTOLANDUI_CONFIG`.

We still need to do the || for the tests to have a valid config to use. (Alternatively we could sprinkle window.AUTOLAND_ENV = {...}) in every test but I'd rather not).
