Docker Compose (single machine / development) Source Deploy

In this guide, you will have everything up and running on one machine and using the latest code.
It is not recommended however for production use.



  1. Configure services by following our Configuration guide and changing:
  • backend/.env.override.composed file for backend service configuration
  • frontend/.env.override.composed file for frontend configuration
  1. Start everything up with .<checkout>/scripts/cli clean-start
  2. Verify that everything is up and running with docker ps -al and you should see something similar to:

  1. Open up our web app at http://localhost:8081/auth/signup and follow the onboarding guide.



Please be aware that using this guide all dependencies will be running on a single machine as well. Some of them (AWS SQS & S3) will be emulated or replaced with an open-source equivalent. Because of them, it is not recommended to use this guide to run our applications for production purposes.

Docker Compose files

If you need to modify or configure services running like this there are a few docker-compose YAML files that need to be mentioned here:

You can modify these files to affect the port mapping, volume binding, and much more.
