Quick Start

What you will build

The very simple application you will build will look like this:

  • a simple table with 5 fields
  • two front-end components: one to display data and one to insert data

That’s it. Just enough to get you up and running. Obviously, there is much more you could do, but that can wait for another day.

With a lack of imagination we hope you will find trustworthy, we are going to call our example application alpha. You will see this reflected in the file names throughout.


Before you start, make sure you have the relevant hardware and software.

You then need to decide whether to run from a Docker container (this is easier and highly recommended) or to use a WSL/CentOS environment.

When you have completed building your application, there are separate instructions for running via WSL/CentOS or via Docker.
