Quickstart installation

A docker-compose-quickstart.yml file is available to get the app up and running in minutes. It contains ‘convenience’ settings, which means that no additional configuration is needed to run the app. Therefore, it should not be used for anything else than testing. For example, it includes:

  • A default SECRET_KEY environment variable

  • A predefined database with the environment variable POSTGRES_HOST_AUTH_METHOD=trust. This lets us connect to the database without using a password.

  • Debug mode is enabled.

Getting started with Docker

  1. Download the docker-compose file:

    $ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/maykinmedia/catalogi-importer/master/docker-compose-quickstart.yml -O docker-compose.yml
  2. Start the docker containers with docker-compose. If you want to run the containers in the background, add the -d flag to the command below.

    $ docker-compose up
  3. Create a super-user.

    $ docker-compose exec web src/manage.py createsuperuser
  4. Navigate to and use the credentials created above to log in.
