Installing / Running the Examples

While these examples are intended to be for developer reference, it can be very helpful to see these examples deployed and running in a Sitecore instance.

  1. Ensure your environment is set up for container-based Sitecore development, including:
    • Hardware guidelines are met
    • Docker Desktop is installed
    • You’ve switched to Windows containers
  2. The default Sitecore container configuration uses specific ports. To avoid any conflicts, ensure the following ports are not being used by another process: 443, 8079, 8081, 8984, and 14330.
  3. You’ll need a Sitecore license file license.xml handy.
    • If you do not have one, please reach out to your Sitecore contact.
  4. Clone the full repository or download it and unzip into a local directory.
  5. Follow the README.md instructions for each example.
