Get that ACS 6 Community EA dev env up and running

Get ACS 6 EA on your local environment and start exploring new features, functionalities, and services.

Install VirtualBox: https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

Install Docker : https://www.docker.com/get-docker

Clone the ACS git project: https://github.com/Alfresco/acs-community-deployment.git,  or just create a docker-compose.yml file with the following contents

Initialize a Docker Machine to run your stack.

Optionally, for Linux/Macs, create a shortcut incase you want to work with multiple machines, environment.

With this shortcut, you can switch docker environment machine from the command prompt, by typing docker-dev. The docker-machine env dev-env-machine will give you info on your machine.

Capture the IP Address of the DOCKER_HOST variable in this command; we’ll need it for accessing ACS.

Now in the same directory as your docker-compose.yml, run the command to start the stack

You can now Access ACS using the IP address for the Docker Host.

Alfresco Repository: http://DOCKER_HOST_IP:8082/alfresco

Alfresco Search Services: http://DOCKER_HOST_IP:8083/solr

Alfresco Share: http://DOCKER_HOST_IP:8080/share

Note that the stack will run in the foreground, with all logging sent to stdout. This follows the https://12factor.net/ Logs concerns for applications. In that, applications don’t concern themselves with output management.

 

If you didn’t capture the IP address, no worries. Open a new terminal window and run docker-dev, and it should be printed.

 

Log in and inspect the installation
