Any SQL – Jet Bridge Docker

Install Jet Bridge without installing any dependencies except the Docker application. May require additional network configuration for your OS.

Jet Bridge has a Docker image available on Docker Hub. In order start it inside Docker for your configuration run the following command.

You can read more about all possible settings on the Configuration page.


  • Docker installed

  • localhost or web server with external IP


  1. Follow this guide to create a project:

  2. Install Docker if you haven't yet

  3. Make sure Docker is running

  4. Update Jet Bridge image if you downloaded it before

docker pull jetadmin/jetbridge

5. Run the Docker container with specified configuration. This will run Jet Bridge on http://localhost:8888/. Choose DATABASE_HOST according to your platform, this address should be accessible inside Docker container (you may need to search how to implement that on your platform). Here is an example for macOS:

If you want to run on different port change it here: ... -p 9000:8888 ... – this will run on 9000

docker run -p 8888:8888 \
-e DATABASE_ENGINE=postgresql \
-e DATABASE_HOST=host.docker.internal \
-e DATABASE_NAME=database \
-e DATABASE_USER=postgres \
-v $(pwd)/jet_media:/jet/media \
--restart always \
--name jet_bridge \

If you want to run SQLite:

docker run -p 8888:8888 \
-e DATABASE_NAME=/jet/database.db \
-v $(pwd)/jet_media:/jet/media \
-v FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_DATABASE:/jet/database.db \
--restart always \
--name jet_bridge \

If you are using Docker before 18.03 you can't use host.docker.internal for DATABASE_HOST Docker 17.12 – 18.02 use Docker 17.06 – 17.11 use docker.for.mac.localhost Docker 17.05 and below your local host IP address (can be found using ifconfig command)

6. You will see Jet Admin token in the console output which you should enter on Project Create page. If you want to display Jet Admin token manually, use the following command:

docker exec -it jet_bridge jet_bridge token

7. Finish your project installation by opening in your browser: http://localhost:8888/api/register/ where localhost is your Jet Bridge HOST and 8888 is its PORT.

If you don't have Jet account yet you will be asked to create one and sign in with the existing account.

After registering your project you will be redirected to your project and can start working with Jet
