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.

Here is the script that will install, configure, pull data and direct you to the dashboards. GitHub (Cloud), GitLab (Cloud + Server), Bitbucket (Cloud + Server), Jira (Cloud) are currently supported.

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

The script explains what it will do and then pauses before it does it. You will be asked tokens for your Git and/or Jira system. All the data remains on your machine. You can inspect the code here.
