Roadie maintains a public Backstage docker image for the community to use. You can find it on Docker Hub. It will quickly give you a sense of what Backstage is and how you might use it.
- Docker installed and running locally on your computer.
- A GitHub Personal Access Token with the
read:discussionscopes. You can find more detailed instructions in our documentation.
Run the following command, replacing
[GITHUB_TOKEN] with your token. Once it starts up, Backstage will automatically open your browser on localhost:7000.
docker run -p 7000:7000 --env GITHUB_TOKEN=[TOKEN] roadiehq/community-backstage-image:latest
