Setup docker and docker-compose for quick full stack mainsail development with simulavr without any real printer
Install docker and docker-compose on your desired machine.
sudo apt install docker docker-compose
- Look into the docker/config folder. Copy the “.example” without the “example ending”.
- Edit the configs to your likings. They are inital setup for a minimal setup environment with simulavr.
- In the root directory of mainsail run
docker/run ps # showing running containers docker/run restart <api/npm> # restarting container # api: restarting complete api container with simulavr/moonraker/klipper services, # npm: restarting nodejs container with running 'npm run serve' docker/run bash <api/npm> # spawning bash shell inside container
Restarting the api container will happen a lot, because simulavr WILL crash a lot! Timings within simulavr are not precise and klipper will bug alot about that.
- The current implementation of simulavr/moonraker/klipper is kinda naiv, because docker wont run with systemd. I will fix that in later versions of the docker container, so you can restart specific containers and omit simulavr and bind a real connected printer for example.
