How to get started

In addition to the source code repositories, there is also a dedicated 'compose'-repository which contains a development environment, build pipelines and deployment instructions. The general purpose version of didmos V2 is called didmos2-demo and its compose-repository is accessible here: https://gitlab.daasi.de/didmos2-demo/didmos2-demo-compose

In there you can find details on how to setup a development environment, which currently is only fully documented for Fedora operating systems.

Additionally, the deploy directory in the compose-repository contains information on how to run a demo version based on Docker and Docker Compose. This is the easiest way to setup a working environment based on our pre-built and published Docker images.
