Docker Setup for GNUHealth Demoserver
This Docker Setup provides a quick and easy way to get a
GNU Health demo server
up and running with only a few steps.
Furthermore this docker setup may be used as a base to create your
own docker based environment for production use.
This build is based on the official docker images
using packages from Debian Tryton Maintainers
and providing the images
for the definition of the application setup and spin up of the test
The images are automatically built from GitHub.
You need a running docker server and curl for downloading some files.
On a Debian based system this means running
sudo apt-get install docker.io curl
Add the user that will use docker (i.e. yourself) to the docker group
sudo useradd myuser docker
Note: You may have to relogin before the group settings will take effect.
Get docker-compose on a recent Debian system with
sudo apt-get install docker-compose
or install docker-compose refering to the installation page e.g.
curl -L https://github.com/docker/compose/releases/download/1.1.0/docker-compose-`uname -s`-`uname -m` > /usr/local/bin/docker-compose chmod +x /usr/local/bin/docker-compose
Create a working directory
mkdir ~/gnuhealth cd gnuhealth
Fetch the definition file
curl -o ./docker-compose.yml https://raw.githubusercontent.com/mbehrle/docker-gnuhealth-demo/master/docker-compose.yml
and get yourself a cup of coffee...
The first setup will take some time for
- downloading the images
- importing the GNU Health Demo database
Subsequent calls to
docker-compose up will run much faster.
Stop the servers with Ctrl+C.
As soon as the servers have started up you can connect with the Tryton client using the credentials
as described in the GNU Health documentation
with the only difference that you put in your own machine as the server (localhost, if you are
running the client on the same machine)
Server: <your_machine>:8000 Database: health30 User name: admin Password: gnusolidario
Note: The version of the Tryton client must match the version of the server (3.8.x).
A suitable client can be installed from distribution packages of your distribution or from the
Tryton download site for OS X or Windows binaries.
For Debian systems please refer to packages from debian.tryton.org
for the procedures to install the correct version.
