eb local

Description

Use eb local run to run your application's containers locally in Docker. Check the application's container status with eb local status. Open the application in a web browser with eb local open. Retrieve the location of the application's logs with eb local logs.

eb local setenv and eb local printenv let you set and view environment variables that are provided to the Docker containers that you run locally with eb local run.

You must run all eb local commands in the project directory of a Docker application that has been initialized as an EB CLI repository by using eb init.

Note

Use eb local on a local computer running Linux. The command doesn't support Windows.
