The easiest way to set up the local development environment is by letting the Divio App application do it for you.
It will install and configure the required software, check that the environment is properly set up, and prompt you if there are any problems that need to be resolved.
Linux users should follow the step-by-step guide Set up the local development environment (Linux).
Notes for Windows users
If you run into difficulties, please ensure:
- that your user is running as an administrator.
- that you have enabled virtualisation in the BIOS of your computer. It's usually auto-enabled, especially in newer machines, so most users won't need to do anything. However in some cases it's not.
