You can easily try Comentario out with Docker
The easiest way to give Comentario a spin is using Docker with its Compose plugin. You won’t need anything else to try it out.
You will need to create the following two files.
version: '3' services: db: image: postgres:16-alpine environment: POSTGRES_DB: comentario POSTGRES_USER: postgres POSTGRES_PASSWORD: postgres ports: - "5432:5432" app: image: registry.gitlab.com/comentario/comentario:v3.0.0-rc1 environment: BASE_URL: http://localhost:8080/ SECRETS_FILE: "/secrets.yaml" ports: - "8080:80" volumes: - ./secrets.yaml:/secrets.yaml:ro
secrets.yaml(find more details in Secrets):
postgres: host: db port: 5432 database: comentario username: postgres password: postgres
The two files must reside in the same directory. Then, start the database and the backend using:
docker compose up
Comentario will be reachable at localhost:8080. Just navigate to Sign up and register with any email and password: you’ll become a superuser and will be able to configure the server and add domains in the UI.
