Install Wagon using Devstep and Docker


Important: This document is no longer valid

Devstep is incompatible with Docker as of Docker 1.12. This is because as of July 2017, Devstep hasn't been updated in over 2 years.

If you don't want to install the ruby package on your machine and you are familiar with Heroku you can use Devstep.
Devstep reuse the same buildpack as Heroku, in short Devstep will start a container and install wagon inside. If you want to drop wagon just drop the container, nothing have been install on your host. (Devstep demo video :

First install Docker :
Then install Devstep :

Now create a new project

mkdir MyPortfolio
cd MyPortfolio
devstep bootstrap -r devstep/MyPortfolio

Devstep will start and open a new container, now set the environnement type

build-project -b ruby

Now install wagon and bootstrap your new project

gem install locomotivecms_wagon
wagon init . -t bootstrap
bundle install

Your image and your project are ready, just exit the container to save the image (no more build until the next dev)


Image is ready, it's time to hack !

devstep hack -p 3333:3333

Now you are inside a container, with all dependencies installed, let's run wagon

bundle exec wagon serve

You can access to your website at http://localhost:3333
Note : Devstep can hack a lot of environments (python, js, go....)

If you already have a website project, you can simply start to hack with the following command

git clone
cd myproject
devstep build
devstep hack -p 3333:3333

Enjoy it !
