Install From Docker Versus Install From Source


#1

What is the difference between the two installations?

To use Talk without major customization you can run the application using our provided docker image.

What kind of customization will be missing by using the docker image?

Hey Pedro! Thanks for writing in :slight_smile:

Good question. Really is just a developer’s preference.

If you want the automation value of Docker, it’s really great, but it does add a layer of complexity if you’re not familiar with Docker, because each part of Talk is encapsulated in a container. It makes it a bit easier to upgrade and manage, especially in a larger production environment.

If you aren’t familiar with Docker and want the standard install route, we give you the option to do that too!

Let us know if you have any other questions, we’re happy to help!

Great! Will give it a try as a non developer and see how it goes. Thanks!
