Get Started#


Setup from Source Code#

Clone the Repository#

git clone

Setup the .env file#

Clone the sample.env to create .env in both BackEndApp/ and FrontEndApp/v1-react/ and configure the necessary environment variables

BackEnd Environment#

  • cd BackEndApp

  • Rename sample.env to .env

  • Fill in the correct values.

FrontEnd Environment#

  • cd FrontEndApp/v1-react

  • Rename sample.env to .env

  • Fill in the correct values.

  • NOTE: Make sure the name of the file is .env (that “ . “ is important)

Installing the Requirements and Running the App#

For Backend
cd Auto-DL/BackEndApp
pip install -r requirements.txt

For Frontend, choose either

  • /v1-react –> Old react application (not actively developed)

  • /autodl-platform –> New nextjs application (preferred)

inside FrontEndApp. Then install the dependencies using:

npm install

Only after all requriements from requirements.txt are installed

cd BackEndApp
mkdir logs

Run the Backend

python runserver
# you can ignore any migration warnings

Finally, run the react frontend

# on a new terminal tab
cd FrontEndApp/v1-react
npm start
cd Auto-DL
sudo ./scripts/
sudo ./scripts/
cd Auto-DL
brew ./scripts/
brew ./scripts/

Setup using Docker#

Configure the necessary environment variables in docker-compose.yml and run docker-compose up.
This will setup a development server, so instead if you want to setup a production server you can replace the dockerfile context in docker-compose.yml for each container to include the production Dockerfile instead of

Note: Before running the production docker containers modify the nginx configuration if needed in nginx/nginx.conf as the FrontEndApp docker container uses nginx in production
