Deployment Quick Start

To quickly set up a local demo of 4Minitz at your site for evaluation and testing you can use our sample Docker Compose configuration file and run it with

docker-compose up

You can now access 4Minitz by pointing your browser to http://localhost:3100.

If you don't want to use docker-compose you can use just docker by starting the two containers manually:

docker run --rm --name mongo mongo
docker run --rm --name 4minitz \
    -v $PWD/4minitz_storage:/4minitz_storage \
    -p 3100:3333 \
    -e MONGO_URL=mongodb://mongo/4minitz \
    --link mongo \

Don't miss the Admin Guide with a more comprehensive coverage of the real production building & installation topic! Especially see how to configure your 4Minitz docker server.

Development environment (Linux, Mac)

Attention: This is not a proper setup for production deployment! It is intended for developers and so it has some security drawbacks (No password protection for MongoDB) and also consumes some amount of extra RAM (>700 MB)). Don't miss the Admin Guide with a more comprehensive coverage of the real production installation topic!


4minitz is realized with the Meteor JS Framework. So, first install the current version of meteor:

curl https://install.meteor.com/ | sh
meteor --version

On Windows? Download the meteor installer. As an experienced Windows admin you sure can transfer the below steps for Linux and Mac to your OS.

Run development version (Linux & Mac)

Once Meteor is set up you can clone and run 4Minitz from source like this:

git clone https://github.com/4minitz/4minitz.git
cd 4minitz
cp settings_sample.json settings.json

Wait some time for meteor to finish downloading and building. You can reach 4Minitz via the default port 3100 by opening http://localhost:3100 in your browser

Hint: There is a settings_sample.json file that has quite a few configuration options (like sending eMails etc.). Don't miss the Admin Guide with more details on this topic.
