🧑 Faros Essentials

Git + Jira analytics on your laptop in 10 minutes

Install Flow



Docker Desktop, git, API tokens for your systems.

Make sure you have allocated enough resources for Docker. We recommend to allocate at least 4 CPUs, 4GB of RAM and 10GB of disk space.

Windows, Linux and MacOS are supported. For Windows, you need WSL2.

/bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/faros-ai/faros-community-edition/main/install.sh)" _ --source doc_essentials

This script will:

  1. Download Faros code repository and setup containers
  1. Ask you to configure Git and/or Jira sources
  2. Pull data from those sources to your machine
  3. Direct you to the dashboards

GitHub (Cloud), GitLab (Cloud + Server), Bitbucket (Cloud + Server), Jira (Cloud) are currently supported. All the data remains on your machine. You can inspect the code here.
