There are several different ways to install Beer Garden, each with its own benefits and drawbacks. Which one we recommend depends on how you intend to use Beer Garden.
Docker / Docker Compose
If you’re already familiar with Docker this is the easiest and fastest way to get up and running. If you’re not familiar with Docker you should check it out.
If you don’t want to mess with Docker and you already have Python you can install Beer Garden as Python distributions. But be warned: you’ll also need to set up RabbitMQ and Mongo yourself.
Native Fedora / CentOS / RHEL
Install using an RPM. Again you’ll have to setup RabbitMQ and Mongo yourself.
This is for developers that want to hack on Beer Garden. Clone the repositories, install dependencies, try things out etc.
