Hey guys its me again lol :sweat_smile: … i’m having issues running aeproject.
When i run aeproject env i get this error:

Any help???

Hey Emanuel,

Sometimes this error is originated due to the fact you have your docker turned off.
Could you please provide some reproduction steps?

Thanks in advance!


Hey metselder,

Firstly docker could not be installed on Windows10 home edition. So i had to follow this tutorial https://www.sitepoint.com/docker-windows-10-home/. I was able to get everything setup. So i ran it in my oracle VM Virtual Box and it runs fine. It shows the server is up and running but anytime i run aeproject node after a couple of minutes i get the error stated above. Could it be that it cannot work on Windows10 home edition?

We provide support for windows so this is not to worry about :slight_smile:

Could you please confirm your docker-compose version.
Also, you might be interested in looking at this topic.
Seems you had similar issue.

Please share with us if you need any further assistance, or you managed to run your local env.



Ok after researching I figured out docker could not be properly installed on windows 10 home because enabling hyper V isn’t supported on windows10 home. So I followed this little hack or tutorial https://www.sitepoint.com/docker-windows-10-home/
On how to install docker on windows 10 home and after completion aeproject node won’t still start the node with docker running concurrently

docker compose version 19.03.3,

Hey @Emmanuel,

Have you tried with docker-toolbox? Also which version of aeproject you are working with? What is the error when trying to start the node?

Are you sure that this is the right version of docker compose?


As far as I can see the latest version of docker-compose is - 1.25.3 released several days aao (2020-01-23)

And latest docker toolbox version is v19.03.1 so I am not so sure what version do you have.

1.24.0, sorry for the mistake, this is my docker compose version

Hi guys. Followed these instructions verbatim.

Running the project

  • Create an empty directory which will hold the node infraestructure, the identity provider and the MemeVote Aepp:
mkdir MemeVote-aeproject
  • Install aeproject globally
npm install -g aeproject
  • Initialize aeproject
cd MemeVote-aeproject
aeproject init
  • Clone the MemeVote daepp
git clone https://github.com/aeternity/aepp-aeproject-js

  • Clone aepp-aeproject-shape-vueI have forked this awesome project because it includes the base functionality of the identity provider, which is in other words a configurable wallet. This fork add some UI improvements that facilitates the configuration and connection to the network from the browser.
git clone https://github.com/snaphuman/aepp-aeproject-shape-vue.git 

On each cloned repository folder (MemeVote and aepp-aeproject) fetch all their

npm install

  • Run both applications
# In Meme vote folder run:
npm start

# In aepp-aeproject-shape-vue run:
npm run serve

but once I went to npm start and npm run serve I received these errors

Leo-1:aepp-aeproject-js user$ npm start
npm ERR! missing script: start

didnt see a script to enter for serve or start in the package.json so I’ve clearly missed something

Hi @Mike

  • install aeproject globally
  • in a new folder aeproject shape vue
  • in another folder clone your repo
  • install dependecies and run it



@alekseytsekov.chain thanks, is this the best way for building an angular app?
