Commcare Sync setup using Docker

Good day,

I need assistance with developer setup using Docker, see link https://github.com/dimagi/commcare-sync

I am stuck on the 'make init' part. How does one run it?

I also need help with the how-to 'using the makefile' section.

Thank you,

Welcome!

Depending on your operating system there are different ways of running a Makefile. Here are some options for Windows: How to run a makefile in Windows? - Stack Overflow

That said, the makefile is just a convenience around docker-compose commands (or sets of commands). So you could bypass make entirely and just run the commands themselves. You can view the source of the file to see what it does.

So make init will run:

docker-compose up -d
docker-compose exec web python manage.py migrate

in succession.

Hope that helps!

Dear Cory,

Your response was helpful.

Thank you!
