Docker Compose

  • Make sure you have Docker and Docker Compose installed and operational.
  • Create docker-compose.yml based on the example. This is the ONLY file you will need. You can create this file on your own machine by copy and pasting the content.
  • Edit BASE_URL to match your domain name or IP address.
  • Edit SECRET_KEY with random value. You can generate it by openssl rand -hex 64.

Download the docker-compose.yml:

curl -L -o docker-compose.yml

Pull images and start services:

docker-compose up -d

Demo user: demo@demo.demo demo


git clone

npm install

# Create a database and edit DATABASE_URL in .env file

npm run db:migrate
npm run db:seed

npm run start:dev

npm start
