Getting Started

The easiest way to get started with a11ywatch is to use Docker or the CLI.

Development

First, you must checkout all repos into the same directory. Some of these repos are optional, but checking them all out allows you to hop around the code more easily. If you are not going to develop you can use docker compose to run the images.

Enter the working directory

cd $WORKING_DIRECTORY

Clone all the repositories (or only the required ones).

git clone https://github.com/A11yWatch/a11ywatch-core.git
git clone https://github.com/A11yWatch/pagemind.git
git clone https://github.com/A11yWatch/web.git
git clone https://github.com/A11yWatch/mav.git
git clone https://github.com/A11yWatch/crawler.git
git clone https://github.com/A11yWatch/elastic-cdn.git
git clone https://github.com/A11yWatch/a11ywatch.git

Navigate to primary repo for main setup and start.

cd a11ywatch

Docker

You can use the docker compose --file dev.yml up to start up the docker instance targeting the dev.yml file.

If you want to run the production application simply docker compose up. If you want to easily get started with the system use the CLI to perform actions.
