Setting up the Divio environment manually

You can also set up the Divio local development environment by hand, so that it runs independently of the Divio Shell. This is suitable only for more experienced users. In short:

  • Download and install Docker for your operating system.
  • pip install divio-cli  to install the Divio CLI.
  • Run divio login so that you can reach your account via the Divio CLI.
  • Ensure that your public key is uploaded to the Control Panel, so that you are able to authenticate with Git.
  • Ensure that you have an up-to-date version of the Git client installed.
