How to Deploy

Since docassemble is a web application, for many people the hardest part about using it is figuring out how to deploy it on the internet.

The easiest way to use docassemble is through a docassemble-based third-party service that provides interview development tools. Existing providers include and Documate. (A third provider, Clerical Platform, is currently available in beta mode.)

If you want to deploy docassemble yourself, the easiest way is to install it using Docker on whatever machine you wish to use. Docker works on laptop computers as well as on virtual machines in the cloud (or clusters of them). Using a cloud-based virtual machine is recommended. If you want very fine-grained control, you can install it without using Docker.

If you are interested in hiring someone to develop an interview for you, you can propose a project in the #questions channel of the Slack group. Consultants who are available for projects include:

Since docassemble is free software, there are no fees for using it, but hosting a server on the internet will cost money (between $10 and $40 per month, or more, depending on what your performance, availability, and support needs are).
