Other Ways to Use Runway

While we recommend using one of the install methods outlined in the Installation section, we realize that these may not be an option for some so we have provided a CloudFormation template for spinning up a deploy environment in AWS and a Docker image/Dockerfile that can be used to run Runway.


This CloudFormation template is probably the easiest and quickest way to go from “zero to Runway” as it allows for using an IAM Role eliminate the need to configure API keys. The template will deploy your preference of Linux or Windows Runway host. Windows Runway host includes Visual Studio Code, which some users may find easier for manipulating Runway config files.


Docker users can build their own Docker image to run a local Runway container or modify this Dockerfile to build a Runway image to suit specific needs.
