Getting Started


  1. An understanding of, or willingness to learn, some basic tech stuff
  2. A computer to run these applications

However you decide to run SyncLounge yourself, to run the webapp you need to set the Access URL using one of these methods:

  • In settings.json
  • Via argument. E.g. - node webapp.js --accessUrl=
  • Environment Variable



The recommended way of running SyncLounge is by using Docker. Docker is an application that runs software in containers making it easier to get applications running. You can learn more by going to Docker's website.

If you are running linux, check out DockSTARTer! DockSTARTer's main goal is to make it quick and easy to get up and running with Docker.


You may also run it directly on a machine using a local install.
