Docker Pro Demo on Windows Linux Subsystem

Warning! This demo is NOT designed for production use or performance testing. The Tyk Pro Docker Demo is our full, On-Premises solution, which includes our Gateway, Dashboard and analytics processing pipeline. This demo will run Tyk On-Premises on your machine, which contains 5 containers: Tyk Gateway, Tyk Dashboard, Tyk Pump, Redis and MongoDB. This demo is great for proof of concept and demo purposes, but if you want to test performance, you need to move each component to a separate machine.

NOTE: You use this at your own risk. Tyk is not supported on the Windows platform. However you can test it as a proof of concept using our Pro Demo Docker installation.

Prerequisites

Step One - Clone the Repo

Clone the repo above to a location on your machine.

Step Two - Edit your hosts file

You need to add the following to your Windows hosts file:

127.0.0.1 www.tyk-portal-test.com

Step Three - Add your Developer Licence

You should have received your free developer licence via email. Copy the licence key in the following location from your \confs\tyk_analytics.conf file:

"license_key": ""

Step Four - Run the Docker Compose File

From PowerShell, run the following command from your installation folder:

docker-compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-local.yml up

This will will download and setup the five Docker containers. This may take some time and will display all output.
