Getting started with Toucan Toco on-premises¶
Start in 5 minutes¶
We strive to make our on-premises packages easy to run, and in this
section we show you how to get started in 5 minutes. Below is an example
docker-compose.yml file — downloadable
here — that starts all the stack:
version: '3' services: mongo: image: mongo:4.0.13 expose: - "27017" redis: image: redis:3.2.7 expose: - "6379" backend: image: toucantoco/backend:latest-monthly depends_on: - mongo - redis ports: - "5000:80" frontend: image: toucantoco/frontend:latest-monthly environment: API_BASEROUTE: http://localhost:5000 ports: - "8000:80"
docker-compose up in the same folder as this file and visit
http://localhost:8000/ to use Toucan Toco. The default username is

gets the URL of the backend as well.
Now please read the rest of this documentation carefully. It is focused on helping you define and setup a proper production architecture.
This is our recommended target architecture with docker-compose :
We are agnostic about the container runtime and orchestration technology that our customers use. We will not be able to provide ready made manifests or other forms of configuration for your choice of orchestrator.
