Docker is an easy way to get started with Superset.
In order to override configuration settings locally, simply make a copy of ./docker/pythonpath_dev/superset_config_local.example into ./docker/pythonpath_dev/superset_config_docker.py (git ignored) and fill in your overrides.
If you want to add python packages in order to test things like DBs locally, you can simply add a local requirements.txt (./docker/requirements-local.txt) and rebuild your docker stack.
Steps: 1. Create ./docker/requirements-local.txt 2. Add your new packages 3. Rebuild docker-compose a.
docker-compose down -v b.
The DB will initialize itself upon startup via the init container (superset-init) (This may take a minute.)
To run the container, simply run:
After several minutes for superset initialization to finish, you can open a browser and view
http://localhost:8088 to start your journey.
It is also possible to run Superset in non-development mode: in the
docker-compose.yml file remove the volumes needed for development and change the variable
If you are attempting to build on a Mac and it exits with 137 you need to increase your docker resources. OSX instructions: https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/#advanced (Search for memory)
