Deployment Quick Start
To quickly set up a local demo of 4Minitz at your site for evaluation and testing you can use our sample Docker Compose configuration file and run it with
You can now access 4Minitz by pointing your browser to http://localhost:3100.
If you don't want to use
docker-compose you can use just docker by
starting the two containers manually:
docker run --rm --name mongo mongo docker run --rm --name 4minitz \ -v $PWD/4minitz_storage:/4minitz_storage \ -p 3100:3333 \ -e MONGO_URL=mongodb://mongo/4minitz \ --link mongo \ 4minitz/4minitz:stable
Development environment (Linux, Mac)
Attention: This is not a proper setup for production deployment! It is intended for developers and so it has some security drawbacks (No password protection for MongoDB) and also consumes some amount of extra RAM (>700 MB)). Don't miss the Admin Guide with a more comprehensive coverage of the real production installation topic!
4minitz is realized with the Meteor JS Framework. So, first install the current version of meteor:
curl https://install.meteor.com/ | sh meteor --version
On Windows? Download the meteor installer. As an experienced Windows admin you sure can transfer the below steps for Linux and Mac to your OS.
Run development version (Linux & Mac)
Once Meteor is set up you can clone and run 4Minitz from source like this:
git clone https://github.com/4minitz/4minitz.git cd 4minitz cp settings_sample.json settings.json ./runapp.sh
Wait some time for meteor to finish downloading and building. You can reach 4Minitz via the default port 3100 by opening http://localhost:3100 in your browser
Hint: There is a settings_sample.json file that has quite a few configuration options (like sending eMails etc.). Don't miss the Admin Guide with more details on this topic.
