Quick Start


This guide gets DeployBoard up and running, but not necessarily production ready. Read the full Deployment guide to make your install production ready.


The quickest way to get an instance of DeployBoard up and running is using docker-compose.

git clone
cd deployboard
python3 -m venv venv
source venv/bin/activate
pip3 install -r requirements-dev.txt
docker-compose up -d --build
python3 ./scripts/


In case you don't know what any of the commands above do.

We clone the git repo. git clone

Change directory into the repo. cd deployboard

Create a virtual environment so our install dependencies are isolated in a temporary workspace. python3 -m venv venv

Activate our virtual environment. source venv/bin/activate

Install our requirements. These will get installed within your virtual environment, so you don't have to worry about conflicts. pip3 install -r requirements-dev.txt

Start the docker containers using docker-compose. The --build flag will force building the containers from scratch. docker-compose up -d --build

Once the MongoDB container is running, you can run the first_user script to create the account and first admin user. python3 ./scripts/
