The easiest and quickest way to run Glide is via our demo repository and docker-compose.


Clone the demo repository

git clone

Init Configs

The demo repository comes with a basic config (learn more about configurations). Additionally, you need to init your secrets by running:

make init # from the demo root

This will create the secrets directory with one .OPENAI_API_KEY file that you need to put your key to.

Windows user should create the secrets directory and the corresponding secrets/.OPENAI_API_KEY file manually.


Start Glide

After that, just use docker compose via this command to start your demo environment:

make up

Windows users should simply run docker-compose up -d
