Docker Compose Setup

This guide goes through the simpler Docker Compose setup. It launches a custom Bitcoin Signet and a Citrea full node for quick syncing.

Step 1: Install Docker

Install Docker from here: Docker Installation Guide

Step 2: Set Up Docker Compose

Download the docker-compose.yml file from the repository: https://github.com/chainwayxyz/citrea/blob/v0.4.0/docker-compose.yml

ROLLUP__RUNNER__INCLUDE_TX_BODY can be set to false if soft batches are not needed - it saves some space.

Step 3: Run Docker Compose

Navigate to same directory with docker-compose.yml file, and run the command in terminal:

docker-compose up -d

This command will start the Bitcoin Signet node and the Citrea full node. After a minute, the node will start to sync with the network.
