# Development Installation

SkillTree's skills-service is configured with smart defaults and will work out-of-the-box, with the one exception that SkillTree requires that a properly configured PostgreSQL database be available. PostgreSQL 's installation, setup and management is beyond the scope of this section, please visit https://www.postgresql.org .


Please note that all of these example run in the Password Auth Mode. Please visit PKI Auth Mode if you are interested in that mode. However, definitely use the Password Auth Mode if you are not sure which mode is applicable to you.

# Docker Distribution Dev Install Examples

Run skills-service with PostgreSQL:

docker run --name skills-service -d -p 8080:8080 \
spring.datasource.password=<password>" \

# Jar-Based distribution development installation
