Docker compose template for software using PostgreSQL, and data visualization Apps

Lots of software using PostgreSQL. Pigsty has some docker compose template for some popular software.

You can launch stateless software with docker easily and using external HA PostgreSQL for higher availability & durability.

Docker is not installed by default, You can install docker with docker.yml playbook, e.g.: ./docker.yml -l infra

Available software and their docker-compose template can be found in pigsty/app
