This command will install Dockware #dev version, which is based on
Production template. If you want to use
development template, you need to use #contribute version. As soon as the docker image is downloaded and dockware is ready, you will see this text:

Open the folder with your compose file in your terminal and execute this command to start your container:
docker-compose up -d
Now download the current version of Shopware to your host into a "src" directory.

Open the "src" folder with your preferred IDE and wait until finished loading. Then add a new SFTP connection to your container. (We recommend Automatic-Upload if possible)
