PrizmDoc Viewer Trial

The PrizmDoc Viewer Docker image makes it easy to evaluate our product on a single machine. Running the image will start a demo web application at http://localhost:8888 where you can easily explore the viewer and its features using your own documents. It will also start a complete PrizmDoc Viewer backend which you can begin using for local development of your application.

For installation guidance, refer to the instructions below or visit our DockerHub page here.

Docker Container

Minimum Hardware Requirements

Before running this Docker image, you MUST configure Docker to use the following minimum hardware resources: 2 CPUs and 7.5 GB memory. If you try to run the image with fewer CPUs or less memory, it may not function correctly.

Getting Started

First, pull the latest version of this image:

docker pull accusoft/prizmdoc-viewer-eval:latest

Then, start a running container:

docker run --rm -p 8888:8888 -p 3000:3000 -p 18681:18681 -e ACCEPT_EULA=YES --name prizmdoc-viewer-eval accusoft/prizmdoc-viewer-eval:latest


Optional: Providing a License Key


The example above starts PrizmDoc Viewer without a license key in a limited evaluation mode. If you would like to do a full-featured evaluation of the product, contact us. If you have a license, you can provide it by setting two extra environment variables, LICENSE_SOLUTION_NAME and LICENSE_LICENSE_KEY:

docker run --rm -p 8888:8888 -p 3000:3000 -p 18681:18681 -e ACCEPT_EULA=YES -e LICENSE_SOLUTION_NAME=YOUR_SOLUTION_NAME -e LICENSE_KEY=YOUR_LICENSE_KEY --name prizmdoc-viewer-eval accusoft/prizmdoc-viewer-eval:latest

Just replace YOUR_SOLUTION_NAME and YOUR_LICENSE_KEY with the actual values.


Wait for the Start-Up Process to Complete

It will take a minute or two for the PrizmDoc Viewer backend to fully start. Eventually, you should see something like this:

PrizmDoc Server is running at:

PAS (PrizmDoc Application Services) is running at:

Demo application will be started at:

Starting the demo application...

> prizmdoc-viewer-eval-demo@1.0.0 start /demo
> NODE_ENV=production node main.js

Application running at http://localhost:8888

Once you see this, the container is fully up and running.
