Fides Sample Project

Command: deploy

Hands-on: Try the Fides: Get Started tutorials.

The fides deploy command starts the Cookie House sample project for testing and learning about Fides. The Cookie House is a fictional e-commerce application built in Next.js and with sample PostgreSQL and MongoDB databases for testing.

Note: The Cookie House sample project requires a current version of Python and Docker Desktop. For more assistance with this try the Fides: Get Started tutorials


Usage: fides deploy <command>

The following subcommands are available:

  • up - Deploy the Cookie House sample project using Docker.
  • down - Destroy the Cookie House sample project and remove all user-created data so it can be restarted cleanly.

Running this command should result in output that resembles the examples below.

Example: Start the sample project
