CoopCycle is a self-hosted platform to order meals in your neighborhood and get them delivered by bike couriers. The only difference with proprietary platforms as Deliveroo or UberEats is that this software is reserved to co-ops.
The main idea is to decentralize this kind of service and to allow couriers to own the platform they are working for. In each city, couriers are encouraged to organize into co-ops, and to run their very own version of the software.
The software is under active development. If you would like to contribute we will be happy to hear from you! All instructions are in the Contribute file.
Coopcycle-web is the main repo, containing the web API, the front-end for the website and the dispatch algorithm : Technical Overview. You can see it in action & test it here : https://demo.coopcycle.org
You can find a comprehensive list of our repos here : Our repos comprehensive list.
How to run a local instance
Use Docker for Mac which will provide you both
Use Docker for Windows which will provide you both
Depending on your platform, Docker could be installed as Native or you have to install Docker toolbox which use VirtualBox instead of Hyper-V causing a lot a differences in implementations.
If you have the luck to have a CPU that supports native Docker you can share your hard disk as a virtual volume for your appliances.
Follow the instructions for your distribution.
docker-compose binary is to be installed independently.
- to install
docker-composefollowing instructions to get the latest version.
- to follow the post-installation steps.
Setup Google Maps API (optional)
CoopCycle uses the Google Maps API for Geocoding, as well as the Places API.
You will need to create a project in the Google Cloud Platform Console, and
enable the Google Maps API. GCP will give you an API token that you will need
later. By default, the Geocoding and Places API will not be enabled, so you
need to enable them as well (
Maps API dashboard > APIs > Geocoding API > Enable, and
Maps API dashboard > APIs > Places API for Web > Enable).
Run the application
Start the Docker containers
At this step, the platform should be up & running, but the database is still empty. To create the schema & initialize the platform with demo data, run:
Open the platform in your browser
Create the test database
docker-compose run php bin/console doctrine:schema:create --env=test
Launch the PHPUnit tests
Launch the Behat tests
Launch the Mocha tests
When pulling change from the remote, the database models may have changed. To apply the changes, you will need to run a database migration.
