Getting Started

To get a local copy up and running follow these simple steps.

Prerequisites (develop version)

GrandNode requires .NET Core 8.0, MongoDB 4.0+, and OS-specific dependency tools.


GrandNode can be installed in a few different ways. Note: The develop branch is the development version of GrandNode and it may be unstable. To use the latest stable version, download it from the Releases page or switch to a release branch.

  • Docker
docker run -d -p --name mongodb mongo 
docker run -d -p 80:8080 --name grandnode2 --link mongodb:mongo grandnode/grandnode2

If you want to download the latest stable version of GrandNode please use the following command, where x.xx is a number of GrandNode release:

docker pull grandnode/grandnode2:x.xx 
  • Open locally with VS2022+

Run the project in the Visual Studio 2022+, extract the source code package downloaded from Releases tab to a folder. Enter the extracted folder and double-click the GrandNode.sln solution file. Select the Plugins project, rebuild it, then select the GrandNode.Web project.

  • Host on Linux server

Before you start - please install, configure the nginx server, .NET Core 8.0+ and MongoDB 4.0+

mkdir ~/source
cd ~/source
git clone - b x.xx
cd ~/source/grandnode
dotnet restore GrandNode.sln

Now it's time to rebuild all of our plugins and publish application (command is pretty long because we've combined all commands in a single line, to ease up your work):

sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Authentication.Facebook && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Authentication.Google && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/DiscountRules.Standard && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/ExchangeRate.McExchange && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Payments.BrainTree && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Payments.CashOnDelivery && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Payments.StripeCheckout && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Shipping.ByWeight && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Shipping.FixedRateShipping && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Shipping.ShippingPoint && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Tax.CountryStateZip && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Tax.FixedRate && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Widgets.FacebookPixel && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Widgets.GoogleAnalytics && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Widgets.Slider && sudo dotnet build src/Plugins/Theme.Modern && sudo dotnet publish src/Web/Grand.Web -c Release -o /var/webapps/grandnode 

Optional: Create the service file, to automatically restart your application.

sudo vi /etc/systemd/system/grandnode.service

Paste the following content, and save changes:


ExecStart=/usr/bin/dotnet /var/webapps/grandnode/Grand.Web.dll


Enable the service and restart the GrandNode

sudo systemctl enable grandnode.service
sudo systemctl start grandnode.service
