Getting Started

1. Create a new demo database #

Docker #

Create a Docker container and set some options

mkdir data
docker run -i -t --rm --name nervatura \
  -p 5000:5000 -v "$(pwd)"/data:/data nervatura/nervatura:latest

In a new command window:

docker exec -i nervatura /nervatura \
  -c DatabaseCreate -k DEMO_API_KEY \
  -o "{\"database\":\"demo\",\"demo\":true}"

Snap #

  /snap/nervatura/current/nervatura -c DatabaseCreate \
  -k DEMO_API_KEY -o "{\"database\":\"demo\",\"demo\":true}"

Database path: /var/snap/nervatura/common/demo.db

Windows #

Open a PowerShell and set the (temporary) variables:


Launch nervatura CLI (in the same command window!), and create a database:

& "C:\Program Files\Nervatura\nervatura.exe" -c DatabaseCreate -k DEMO_API_KEY -o '{\"database\":\"demo\",\"demo\":true}'

Default Nervatura data directory: C:\ProgramData\Nervatura\data

Launch nervatura server (in the same command window or Start menu):

& "C:\Program Files\Nervatura\nervatura.exe" -tray

Of course, the environment variables can also be set permanently (see more SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe). In this case, the server can be started from anywhere.

Alternatively, the settings can be specified in the parameter:

& "C:\Program Files\Nervatura\nervatura.exe" -tray -env C:\ProgramData\Nervatura\.env.example
