1.1.1 Quick Start

Concourse is distributed as a single concourse binary, making it easy to run just about anywhere, especially with Docker.

If you'd like to just get Concourse running somewhere quickly so you can start to kick the tires, the easiest way is to use the Docker Compose quick-start:

$ wget https://concourse-ci.org/docker-compose.yml
$ docker-compose up -d
Creating docs_concourse-db_1 ...
Creating docs_concourse-db_1 ... done
Creating docs_concourse_1 ...
Creating docs_concourse_1 ... done

Concourse will be running at localhost:8080. You can log in with the username/password as test/test.

Next, install fly CLI by downloading it from the web UI and target your local Concourse as the test user:

$ fly -t tutorial login -c http://localhost:8080 -u test -p test
logging in to team 'main'

target saved

Once you've confirmed everything is up and running, you can skip the rest of the Install section and head straight to the Concourse Tutorial or to the rest of the Concourse docs.
