Getting Started


Tremor can be installed in a variety methods such as through a package or compiling it from source code. We recommend following this quickstart guide which will use a Docker Image to get your first instance of Tremor running.

A running version of Docker on a system with an internet connection is required.


The simplest way to get Tremor is by downloading the Docker Image. You can install the latest version of Tremor by running the following command in terminal:

docker pull tremorproject/tremor:latest


The Tremor Docker image is configured by mounting a configuration folder to /etc/tremor.

The structure is as follows:

- logger.yaml
` config
` *.yaml
` *.trickle
  • logger.yaml A log4rs configuration file.
  • config/*.trickle One or more trickle files loaded in lexigraphical order to provide pipelines.
  • config/*.yaml One or more YAML files with configurations for Onramps, Offramps and Bindings and Mappings.

For details on the files please consult the documentation.

Running Tremor

Once downloaded and configured, run the following command in terminal to start the Tremor Docker Image:

docker run -v host/path/to/etc/tremor:/etc/tremor tremor-runtime
