Install DRAW


📖 By downloading the DRAW installer, you agree with the Terms and Conditions 🤝✅


You need docker-compose to download and run a demo version of the Olympe platform. If you don't have it yet, you can find the docker installer for Mac or for Windows.

Start docker from your installed location.

Install DRAW​


Minimum system requirements recommended for sucessfully installing the Olympe platform:

  • 8 GB RAM memory
  • 4 CPUs

Download this archive, extract it. Then:

  • On UNIX based systems (MacOS, Linux, ...) : open a terminal, and within the extracted folder run ./
  • On Windows systems, open a command prompt (cmd.exe) with admin rights, and run powershell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -File start.ps1.

(You can also find the installation steps in the README.txt file.)

The installer downloads and launches Docker images for Neo4j, the Olympe Orchestrator and nginx. The whole process takes around 2-4 minutes and at the end, you will be prompted in the terminal with "App is running on http://localhost:80".

This indicates that the installation has been successful.


If you encounter issues, please refer to the troubleshooting section below.

Launch your DRAW instance

In your browser:

  • launch the DRAW instance at http://localhost:80
  • credentials:
    • username: admin
    • password: as displayed in the terminal

That's all! You can now take a look at our guides and tutorials, and start building a first app.

If you want to go further and add custom coded bricks, we recommend that you download DRAW and CODE.


Troubleshooting guide

  1. In case the authentication (username: admin; password: seen in the terminal) is not working, you can remove the initialized folder from your extracted folder, and relaunch the ./ script.

  2. If, after installation, the DRAW instance appears with a red banner and the message "We’ve lost our connection to you, so we’ve disabled any editing to prevent any issue. You’ll be able to edit once we reconnect" does not disappear after 1-2 minutes, it means that the components have encountered some issues upon installation and DRAW can not start properly. We recommend a clean re-install by performing the following steps:

  • Go to the “app” folder in your installed location.
  • docker ps -a . If you only have the containers for the orchestrator, neo4j (generated by Olympe) and nginx, run docker-compose down to make sure that all Olympe containers are stopped and removed. You can also stop them individually with docker container rm neo4j, docker container rm orchestrator, and docker container rm nginx.
  • Delete your “app” folder.
  • Unzip again the downloaded DRAW archive and go to the extracted location.
  • Run ./ script.
  1. Chrome users may see the following pop-up upon launching DRAW:
