How do I local test my Rocket.Chat App?


#1

I’m creating a new Rocket.Chat App, but I’m new to the entire Rocket.Chat environment. How do I start my own Rocket.Chat instance and how to test the App?

@plets the best way is running rocket.chat locally and using the apps cli to install

rc-apps deploy --url http://localhost:3000 --username your_username --password your_password

I would suggest the develop way https://rocket.chat/docs/developer-guides/quick-start/ or via docker compose https://rocket.chat/docs/installation/docker-containers/#6-create-the-docker-composeyml-file--local-directories
