First Run

It's finally time to start your first Shopware 6 with dockware. For this we use the dockware #play version, which brings everything you need to simply start and explore Shopware 6. Run Shopware 6 with latest version

docker run --rm -p 80:80 dockware/play:latest

The dockware image will be downloaded the first time you run this command. Upcoming starts will not download it again, and will be much faster.

As soon as dockware is ready, you will see an output that shows you all available URLs.

That's it - give it a try!
