Installation Using Docker for MacOS
This guide covers building new projects based on Shopsys Framework. If you want to contribute to the framework itself, you need to install the whole shopsys/shopsys monorepo. Take a look at the article about Monorepo for more information.
This solution uses docker-sync (for relatively fast two-way synchronization of the application files between the host machine and Docker volume).
Docker-sync might be a burden for intensive project development, especially when there is a huge amount of files in shared volumes of virtualized docker and when switching between branches or even between projects often. In such a case, you should consider using native installation.
- At least version 7.2 or higher
- Docker for Mac
- Docker-sync suggests (in known issue) to use Docker for Mac in version 17.09.1-ce-mac42 (21090)
- Docker for Mac requires at least 6.5 GB of memory, but this is only required to run
composer updatewhich would result in
Killedstatus if not enough memory would be available (we recommend to set at least 2.5 GB RAM, 1 CPU and 4 GB Swap in
Docker -> Preferences… -> Resources -> ADVANCED)
- Version of Docker Engine should be at least 17.05 or higher so it supports multi-stage builds.
- Version of Docker Compose should be at least 1.17.0 or higher because we use compose file version
- Docker-sync (install via
sudo gem install docker-sync)
1. Create new project from Shopsys Framework sources¶
composer create-project shopsys/project-base --no-install --keep-vcs cd project-base
--no-installoption disables installation of the vendors - this will be done later in the Docker container
--keep-vcsoption initializes GIT repository in your project folder that is needed for diff commands of the application build and keeps the GIT history of
Now, you have two options:
In the case you want to start demo of the application as fast as possible, you can simply execute the installation script and that is all:
--skip-aliasing may be used in case you have already enabled second domain or you do not want to enable it for some reason. When using this option you will not be asked for sudo password.
After the script is finished with installing the application, you can skip all the other steps and see the last chapter of Application Setup Guide to get all the important information you might need right after the installation.
If you want to know more about what is happening during installation, continue with the steps #2.1 - #2.5.
2.1 Enable second domain (optional)
There are two domains each for different language in default installation. First one is available via IP adress
127.0.O.1 and second one via
127.0.0.2 is not alias of
127.0.0.1 on Mac by default. To create this alias in network interface run:
sudo ifconfig lo0 alias 127.0.0.2 up
2.2. Create docker-compose.yml and docker-sync.yml
docker-compose.yml from template
cp docker/conf/docker-compose-mac.yml.dist docker-compose.yml
docker-sync.yml from template
cp docker/conf/docker-sync.yml.dist docker-sync.yml
2.3 Set the UID and GID to allow file access in mounted volumes
Because we want both the user in host machine (you) and the user running php-fpm in the container to access shared files, we need to make sure that they both have the same UID and GID.
This can be achieved by build arguments
www_data_gid that should be set to the same UID and GID as your own user in your
Also, you need to change
You can find out your UID by running
id -u and your GID by running
Once you get these values, set these values into your
php-fpm container definition by replacing values in
Also you need to insert your UID into
docker-sync.yml into value
2.4 Compose Docker container
On MacOS you need to synchronize folders using docker-sync. Before starting synchronization you need to create a directory for persisting Postgres and Elasticsearch data so you won't lose it when the container is shut down.
mkdir -p var/postgres-data var/elasticsearch-data vendor docker-sync start
Then rebuild and start containers
docker-compose up -d --build
During the build of the docker containers there will be installed 3-rd party software as dependencies of Shopsys Framework by Dockerfile with licenses that are described in document Open Source License Acknowledgements and Third-Party Copyrights
