Quick Start with Docker


1. Install the Meshery command line client, mesheryctl .

Deploying Meshery on Docker

Follow these installation steps to use Docker and Docker Compose to run Meshery. Users often choose this installation approach in order to run Meshery on their local machine. If you need to install docker, see Getting Started with Docker and if you need to install docker-compose, see Installing Docker Compose.

Start Meshery by executing:

mesheryctl system start

Post-Installation Steps

Optionally, you can verify the health of your Meshery deployment, using mesheryctl system check.

You’re ready to use Meshery! Open your browser and navigate to the Meshery UI.

Accessing Meshery UI

After successfully deploying Meshery, you can access Meshery’s web-based user interface. Your default browser will be automatically opened and directed to Meshery UI (default location is http://localhost:9081).

If you are unable to access Meshery UI, you can use the following command to open Meshery UI in your default browser:

mesheryctl system dashboard

If you have installed Meshery on Kubernetes or a remote host, you can access Meshery UI by exposing it as a Kubernetes service or by port forwarding to Meshery UI.

mesheryctl system dashboard --port-forward

Alternatively, you can use kubectl to port forward to Meshery UI. Example

kubectl port-forward svc/meshery 9081:9081 --namespace meshery

Log into the Provider of your choice.
