You can use Docker to get WISE running on your local computer or server. This is a quick and painless way to get WISE running, but it is not recommended for actual use in classrooms. You should follow instructions on this page instead: https://github.com/WISE-Community/WISE/wiki/How-to-Setup-WISE-on-a-Server

If you encounter problems please email the WISE developer mailing list http://groups.google.com/group/wise-dev or chat with us on Gitter https://gitter.im/WISE-Community/WISE

First time

  1. Install Docker from https://www.docker.com. You don't need to sign up or pay to use with WISE.

  2. Find the version of WISE that you want to use from this page: https://hub.docker.com/r/wisedocker/wise/tags. Note the tag name, and replace it in the command below. For this example, we'll be using "v5.3".

  3. Open your favorite terminal, and run this command to download and start WISE:

    $ docker run --name wise5.3 -d -p 8080:8080 wisedocker/wise:v5.3

  4. Open your browser and go to http://localhost:8080/wise. You might need to wait a bit depending on your network, but you should see WISE running in your browser! WISE comes with default users. Read this page to get started adding projects to WISE: https://github.com/WISE-Community/WISE/wiki/WISE-Administrator-Resources

  5. To stop running WISE, run this command on your Terminal:

    $ docker stop wise5.3

Starting WISE again

  1. Open your terminal, and run this command to start WISE:

    $ docker start wise5.3

Your data from previous sessions should be persisted.
