  1. Install docker
  2. Install gitlab (is used as the source code host and as the authentication server). In order to install gitlab, you can use the following commands:
# The DB part
docker run --name gitlab-postgresql -d \
    --env 'DB_NAME=gitlabhq_production' \
    --env 'DB_USER=gitlab' --env 'DB_PASS=password' \
    --env 'DB_EXTENSION=pg_trgm' \
    --volume /srv/docker/gitlab/postgresql:/var/lib/postgresql \

# The caching part
docker run --name gitlab-redis -d \
    --volume /srv/docker/gitlab/redis:/var/lib/redis \

# The gitlab instance
docker run --name gitlab -d \
    --link gitlab-postgresql:postgresql --link gitlab-redis:redisio \
    --publish 10023:22 --publish 10081:80 \
    --env 'GITLAB_PORT=10081' --env 'GITLAB_SSH_PORT=10023' \
    --env 'GITLAB_SECRETS_DB_KEY_BASE=long-and-random-alpha-numeric-string' \
    --env 'GITLAB_SECRETS_SECRET_KEY_BASE=long-and-random-alpha-numeric-string' \
    --env 'GITLAB_SECRETS_OTP_KEY_BASE=long-and-random-alpha-numeric-string' \
    --volume /srv/docker/gitlab/gitlab:/home/git/data \
  1. Install nvm so that playing with node versions is easier
  2. Install node through nvm. We are working with at least the version 8.9.4: - nvm install 8.9.4
  3. Do npm install to install dependencies.
  4. Run the application with: npm start
You can’t perform that action at this time.
