How to run appsmith on local host?


I want to learn how to use Appsmith and run it on my PC's local host.


To run Appsmith on your local host, you will need to follow a few steps. First, you need to download and install Docker on your PC. Docker is a platform for developing, shipping, and running applications in containers.

Next, you need to clone the Appsmith repository from GitHub. Open your terminal or Git Bash and run the command:

git clone

Once the repository is cloned, navigate to the appsmith directory and run the following command to pull Appsmith's Docker image:

docker-compose pull

After the image is pulled, run the following command to start the Appsmith container:

docker-compose up -d

The -d flag runs the container in the background. Once the container is up and running, you can access the Appsmith dashboard by opening your web browser and navigating to http://localhost:8080.

You can log in with the default username and password, which are admin and password. You should change these credentials after logging in for the first time.

That's it! You can now start building and testing your applications using Appsmith on your local host.
