URL returned is not formatted correctly

See original GitHub issue

I am trying to implement the electron release server and for now I am using docker compose to run it on my local machine.

here is my docker-compose.yml

version: '2'
    build: .
      APP_USERNAME: admin
      APP_PASSWORD: admin
      DB_HOST: db
      DB_PORT: 5432
      DB_USERNAME: releaseserver
      DB_NAME: releaseserver
      DB_PASSWORD: secret
      TOKEN_SECRET: change_me_in_production
      APP_URL: 'localhost:5000'
      - db
      - '5000:80'
    entrypoint: ./scripts/ db:5432 -- npm start
    image: postgres
      POSTGRES_USER: releaseserver

When I call the server endpoint http://localhost:5000/update/osx_64/0.0.1 I get json back, but the url in the response is not correct

  "url": "localhost:/download/0.0.2/osx_64?filetype=zip",
  "name": "0.0.2",
  "notes": "",
  "pub_date": "2017-05-10T23:12:52.000Z"

you will notice that the port is missing. So i added some debug to VersionController.js

sails.log.debug('Version candidate accepted');
sails.log.debug('appUrl '+sails.config.appUrl);
sails.log.debug(sails.config.appUrl + '/download/' + + '/' + latestVersion.assets[0].platform + '?filetype=zip');
              '/download/' + + '/' +
              latestVersion.assets[0].platform + '?filetype=zip'

and what I get back in the debug is

web_1  | debug: Version candidate accepted
web_1  | debug: appUrl localhost:5000
web_1  | debug: localhost:5000/download/0.0.2/osx_64?filetype=zip
web_1  | debug: localhost:/download/0.0.2/osx_64?filetype=zip

it looks like url.resolve() is removing the port. Is there any way to fix this?

nevermind, I read this and changed my APP_URL to http://localhost:5000 and now it works. You should probably change your default yml to have the same
