Installing Spryker in Demo mode on Windows

Follow the steps to install Spryker in Demo Mode:

  1. Open Ubuntu.

  2. Open a terminal.

  3. Create a new folder and navigate into it.

  4. Depending on the desired Demo Shop:

    • Clone the B2C repository:
    git clone -b 202212.0-p2 --single-branch ./b2c-demo-shop
    • Clone the B2B repository:
    git clone -b 202212.0-p2 --single-branch ./b2b-demo-shop
  5. Depending on the cloned repository, navigate into the cloned folder:

    • B2C repository:
    cd b2c-demo-shop
    • B2B repository:
    cd b2b-demo-shop

Make sure that you are in the correct folder by running the pwd command.

  1. Clone the Docker SDK repository into the same folder:
git clone --single-branch docker
  1. Add your user to the docker group:
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
  1. Bootstrap the local Docker setup for demo:
docker/sdk bootstrap

Once you finish the setup, you don’t need to run bootstrap to start the instance. You only need to run it after the following takes place:

  • Docker SDK version update.
  • Deploy file update.
  1. Update the hosts file:

    1. Open the Start menu.
    2. In the search field, enter Notepad.
    3. Right-click Notepad and select Run as administrator.
    4. In the User Account Control window, select Yes to confirm the action.
    5. In the upper navigation panel, select File > Open.
    6. Put the following path into the address line: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc.
    7. In the File name line, enter hosts and select Open. The hosts file opens in the drop-down.
    8. Add the following line into the file:   spryker.local mail.spryker.local queue.spryker.local scheduler.spryker.local swagger.spryker.local

    If needed, add corresponding entries for other stores. For example, if you are going to have a US store, add the following entries:

    1. Select File > Save.
    2. Close the file.
  2. Once the job finishes, build and start the instance:

docker/sdk up

Depending on the hardware performance, the first project launch can take up to 20 minutes.


To ensure that the installation is successful, make sure you can access the following endpoints.

The Storefront,,
the Back Office,,
the Back Api
the Back Gateway
Glue API,,
Jenkins (scheduler) scheduler.spryker.local
RabbitMQ UI (queue manager) queue.spryker.local
Mailhog UI (email catcher) mail.spryker.local
Swagger swagger.spryker.local
Dashboard spryker.local
RabbitMQ UI credentials

To access RabbitMQ UI, use spryker as a username and secret as a password. You can adjust the credentials in deploy.yml. See Deploy file reference - 1.0 to learn about the Deploy file.
