OXID Dev Environment on Docker 

As a developer you might want to use an SDK (Software Development Kit), an OXID development environment based on Docker incl. a collection of useful tools like tests or xDebug. The installation is very simple; however, this container is explicitly not suitable for productive use.


Bitnami provides several stacks to run the latest OXID eShop versions, either at one of the big cloud services like Amazon or Google Cloud, or at Microsoft Azure. You also can download a virtual machine, a Docker container or even an executable web server for your PC, Mac or even Linux.
