Installing via Docker

Docker is a tool designed to make it easier to create, deploy, and run applications by using containers.

Containers allow a developer to package up an application with all of the parts it needs, such as libraries and other dependencies, and deploy it as one package.

If you’re not familiar with Docker, this guide is a great point to start.

Building the container

docker-compose build

Running the container

docker-compose up
