The Simplest Way to Manage Your Entire Dev Infrastructure!
Koding is a development platform that orchestrates your dev environment. Developers get everything they need to spin up full-stack, project-specific environments in seconds. Share them, update them, and manage infrastructure from a simple interface.
You can try Koding now on koding.com
Quick Start with Docker-Compose
Easiest way to run Koding is to install
can be found here. For the
rest you can follow these steps:
git clone https://github.com/koding/docker-compose.git koding-docker-compose cd koding-docker-compose # Requires docker-compose version >= 1.6 docker-compose up -d
Now you are able to access Koding via port
8090 (e.g. localhost:8090) on your host.
Run Koding on Koding.com

Getting started for Development
You need to install following software packages to run Koding:
You are now ready to run Koding.
git clone https://github.com/koding/koding.git cd koding docker-compose -f docker-compose-init.yml run init docker-compose up
If you don't have a powerful computer, this may take a while at first, slow computers may take up to 15 minutes before they build the entire system. Please be patient. Once it is up and running, everything will be smooth and very fast.
Now you can navigate to http://localhost:8090 to see your local Koding instance. Enjoy! (If you don't see it, keep waiting, it will show up)
When you edit files on your host computer, they will be visible in the runtime environment. Watchers will automatically restart backend workers, re-compile frontend code. You don't need to do anything for it.
If you need to execute some commands in runtime environment, here is how you can start a shell in backend service container:
docker-compose exec backend bash
You can follow coffeescript-styleguide that we are relying on.
Running Koding on Local Machine
This is if you don't want to do docker-compose way and install everything locally, (not recommended).
Follow these steps for running the instance:
git clone https://github.com/koding/koding.git /your/koding/path cd /your/koding/path node -v # make sure your node version is not greater than `0.10.x` npm -v # make sure your npm version is 2.15.x coffee -v # make sure your coffeeScript version must be 1.8 npm install
You should have packages ready for running build specific scripts.
./configure # create necessary config files ./run install # start to install dependencies ./run buildservices # build the services ./run # run all services
As a result, you will have a file watcher watching your backend files (both node, and golang) and restart services when it's necessary. Now open up another terminal and run following commands:
cd /your/koding/path cd client # move into frontend client folder npm install # install client dependencies make # this will run a client watcher for you
The main purpose of this repository to continue evolve Koding in order to make it more stable and create the best development experience ever. If you're interested in helping with that, please check our open issues. You can also join the conversation in our slack team!
