🏗️Install on your server

How to install Twake

Use Twake in SaaS

You can test or use Twake in our SaaS : chat.twake.app

Run Twake in your server

First you'll need to install docker and docker-compose.

Then you can install Twake on your server with this command

git clone https://github.com/TwakeApp/Twake.git
cd Twake/twake
docker-compose -f docker-compose.onpremise.mongo.yml up -d

Twake will be running on port 3000

What's next ?

If you kept the default configuration, you can simply follow the signup steps, no email verification is required by default so you will get into Twake right after the signup steps.

Ship Twake in production

See how to manage configuration. And then how to update security keys, and finally how to use your custom domain.

Update Twake

docker-compose stop
docker-compose rm #Remove images (not volumes so your data is safe)
docker-compose pull #Get new images
docker-compose up -d
docker-compose exec nginx yarn build #If you have custom frontend configuration

Requirements and scalability

Currently you'll need at least a 2 cpu + 4 gb of ram machine for 20-50 users depending on their usage and with ElasticSearch disabled.

If you enable ElasticSearch, use two machines, or limit the cpu/ram dedicated to it and use a larger machine (at least 2gb of ram and 1 cpu dedicated to ES for 20-50 users).

If you need to deploy Twake for more users, you can use only one big machine up to 500 users (Will need something like 12 cpu and 32go of ram), then you'll need to use multiple nodes.

We deployed Twake on production for companies of 10 to 50 users in a single node. We also deployed Twake in a scalable mode and we support currently thousands of concurrent users.

If you deploy Twake in your own company we would love to have your feedback here https://github.com/TwakeApp/Twake/issues/289 to improve our requirements documentation.
