Quickstart with Docker

This guide will help you get Hasura GraphQL engine and Postgres running as Docker containers using Docker Compose. This is the easiest way to set up Hasura GraphQL engine on your local environment.
In case you'd like to run Hasura on an existing Postgres database, follow this guide to :doc:`deploy the Hasura GraphQL engine as a standalone docker container <../deployment/docker/index>` and connect it to your Postgres instance.
Step 1: Get the docker-compose file
The hasura/graphql-engine/install-manifests repo contains all installation manifests required to deploy Hasura anywhere. Get the docker compose file from there:
# in a new directory wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hasura/graphql-engine/master/install-manifests/docker-compose/docker-compose.yaml
Step 2: Run Hasura GraphQL engine & Postgres
$ docker-compose up -d
Check if the containers are running:
$ docker ps CONTAINER ID IMAGE ... CREATED STATUS PORTS ... 097f58433a2b hasura/graphql-engine ... 1m ago Up 1m 8080->8080/tcp ... b0b1aac0508d postgres ... 1m ago Up 1m 5432/tcp ...
Step 3: Open the Hasura console
http://localhost:8080/console to open the Hasura console.
