Docker powered web development environments for macOS, Windows, and Linux. Unified environment for your team regardless of the OS.

Why Docksal

  • Full power of Docker Compose to suit any project without artificial syntax limitations
  • Unprecedented ability to automate routine tasks, slashing the time to on-board new team members.

    Create your custom automation in Bash, PHP, or Node to spin up your project anywhere where Docksal is with a single command, or automate routine tasks.

  • Best in class filesystem performance

  • Running Drupal, Wordpress, Magento, Laravel, Symfony, Backdrop, Grav, Hugo, Gatsby, and others is one step away with ready-to-use boilerplates.

Welcome onboard

Install Docksal, cd to the desired directory, and run:

fin project create

The wizard will guide you throughout the creation of a new project using any of the Instant Boilerplate Projects listed below. The wizard will create the proper Docker containers stack, depending on the project choice, and install a working empty project preconfigured for running in Docksal that you can build upon.

Instant Boilerplate Projects
