Run wallabag in docker-compose

In order to run your own development instance of wallabag, you may want to use the pre-configured docker compose files.

Requirements

Make sure to have Docker and Docker Compose availables on your system and up to date.

Switch DBMS

By default, wallabag will start with a SQLite database. Since wallabag provides support for Postgresql and MySQL, docker containers are also available for these ones.

In docker-compose.yml, for the chosen DBMS uncomment:

  • the container definition (postgres or mariadb root level block)
  • the container link in the php container
  • the container env file in the php container

In order to keep running Symfony commands on your host (such as wallabag:install), you also should:

  • source the proper env files on your command line, so variables like SYMFONY__ENV__DATABASE_HOST will exist.
  • create a 127.0.0.1 rdbms on your system hosts file

Run wallabag

  1. Fork and clone the project
  2. Edit app/config/parameters.yml to replace database_* properties with commented ones (with values prefixed by env.)
  3. composer install the project dependencies
  4. php bin/console wallabag:install to create the schema
  5. docker-compose up to run the containers
  6. Finally, browse to http://localhost:8080/ to find your freshly installed wallabag.

At various step, you'll probably run into UNIX permission problems, bad paths in generated cache, etc… Operations like removing cache files or changing files owners might be frequently required, so don't be afraid !
