Tuesday, February 27, 2018 Comments (0)

In this short tutorial, I would like to share with you the way how to install GrandNode with Docker for Linux containers.

What is Docker?

Docker is an open-source project for automating the deployment of applications as portable, self-sufficient containers that can run in the cloud or on-premises (see Figure 1-2). Docker is also a company that promotes and develops this technology, working in collaboration with cloud, Linux, and Windows vendors, including Microsoft.

More information about Docker you can find in the official documentation: 

Build and run the GrandNode with Docker for Linux containers

It's basic! Install Docker from the site mentioned above. 

All you need is a running Docker and cmd. 

Please run the command:

$ docker pull grandnode/develop

Screen from cmd - docker pull

It will download the newest image from our GitHub. 

The next step is to start the application. You can do it with following command:

$ docker run -d -p --name nameofyourapp grandnode/develop

Screen from cmd - docker run

Almost done. Now start the container with:

$ docker start nameofyourapp

Screen from cmd docker start

You can check if the app works on in your browser. You should see the installation screen.

You can also check the docker container status, by entering:

$ docker ps

Screen from cmd - docker ps

You will see a list of active containers.
