Quickstart (1-click install)

  1. Download the latest stable release of Tutor, uncompress the file and place the tutor executable in your path. From the command line:

sudo curl -L "https://github.com/overhangio/tutor/releases/download/v3.7.3/tutor-$(uname -s)_$(uname -m)" -o /usr/local/bin/tutor
sudo chmod 0755 /usr/local/bin/tutor
  1. Run tutor local quickstart

  2. You’re done!

That’s it?

Yes :) This is what happens when you run tutor local quickstart:

  1. You answer a few questions about the Configuration of your Open edX platform.

  2. Configuration files are generated from templates.

  3. Docker images are downloaded.

  4. Docker containers are provisioned.

  5. A full, production-ready platform is run with docker-compose.

The whole procedure should require less than 10 minutes, on a server with a good bandwidth. Note that your host environment will not be affected in any way, since everything runs inside docker containers. Root access is not even necessary.

There’s a lot more to Tutor than that! To understand what Tutor does and how it works, take a look at the introduction.
