These are our recommendations for the different environments and purposes:

  • To setup CONSUL for a production environment we recommend using the installer.

  • For developers working on a CONSUL fork we recommend using a UNIX based system (Linux or Mac) and installing CONSUL locally system wide.

  • If you run into problems configuring CONSUL locally system wide and would like to show CONSUL for demo purposes we recommend using Docker in a local machine.

  • We also have a Heroku guide which can be used for demo purposes in a remote server.
