The easiest way to install exo is to run the following command:
curl -sL https://exo.deref.io/install | bash
In your terminal, navigate to your project's root directory and initialize it:
If this directory is empty or otherwise does not contain an exo manifest, one will be created for you. Otherwise, the existing manifest will be imported automatically.
If so, Exo is compatible with your existing configuration!
The initialization process from the previous step will automatically import compatible configuration and launch the specified processes, containers, and other components in the background. You can proceed to the next step.
Alternatively, to use exo as a drop-in replacement for
docker-compose up, simply run:
runcommand starts all of the components in the project and tails their logs. A run can be stopped with the standard
^cterminal interrupt sequence.
Exo supports both command line and graphical interfaces for most options. Development logs can be viewed either in the terminal or in your browser, whatever your preference:
# Launch GUI in browser.
# Tail logs in terminal
When you're ready to work on something else, you may wish to shutdown all processes in your workspace:
Or if you're done with this project forever, you can completely eliminate the exo state:
exo workspace destroy
Note that this will not affect your code files on disk.
