Installing ODK Central on Windows 10

Hi there,

I would like to install ODK Central on my Windows 10 localhost using docker (purely for testing purposes). I know it's possible but I'm not sure if the ODK Collect app could be connected with the Central installed on my localhost which is not accessible from the internet?

I can try installing central on a free trial digital ocean droplet but I'm interested to test it on my localhost.


Hello, you can do it using docker locally through docker-compose hope this help

@Aurelien_Xavier, Of course I can do it using docker but my question is how can I connect the ODK Collect android app which is installed on my mobile with the local ODK Central?
