Spin up the environment

If you don’t want to use Docker, you can use the 30-day free trial of lakeFS Cloud. Once you launch the free trial you will have access to the same content as this quickstart within the provided repository once you login.

The quickstart uses Docker to bring up the lakeFS container, pre-populate it with some data, and also provides DuckDB from where we can interact with the data. You’ll need Docker installed to run this.

Launch the lakeFS container:

docker run --name lakefs --pull always \
             --rm --publish 8000:8000 \
             treeverse/lakefs:latest \
             run --quickstart

After a few moments you should see the lakeFS container ready to use:

│ lakeFS running in quickstart mode.
│     Login at
