Installing lakeFS

Note: The quickstart section is for learning purposes. The installations below will not persist your data. Instead, it will spin-up a database in a docker container, which will be discarded later.

For a production suitable deployment, see Deploying on AWS.

Using docker-compose

Other quickstart methods can be found here.

To run a local lakeFS instance using Docker Compose:

  1. Ensure you have Docker & Docker Compose installed on your computer, and that compose version is 1.25.04 or higher. For more information, please see this issue.

  2. Run the following command in your terminal:

    curl https://compose.lakefs.io | docker-compose -f - up
    
  3. Check your installation by opening http://127.0.0.1:8000/setup in your web browser.

Next steps

Now that your lakeFS is running, try creating a repository.
