Local Deployment
These instructions have been tested on MacOS, Windows 10 and Ubuntu 20.04.

Setup & launch Airbyte

  • Install Docker on your workstation (see instructions). Make sure you're on the latest version of docker-compose.
  • After Docker is installed, you can immediately get started locally by running:
git clone https://github.com/airbytehq/airbyte.git
cd airbyte
docker-compose up

Deploy on Windows

We recommend following this guide to install Docker on Windows. After installing the WSL 2 backend and Docker you should be able to run containers using Windows PowerShell. Additionally, as we note frequently, you will need docker-compose to build Airbyte from source. The suggested guide already installs docker-compose on Windows.
