Start Stargate

This method is not required for Stargate v2, but you need these instructions for Stargate v1. If you don’t already have access to a Stargate deployment, one can be started quickly for testing in developer mode. Developer mode removes the need to set up a separate Cassandra instance and is meant for development and testing only. This docker run command also exposes port 8090 for gRPC connections.

docker run --name stargate \
  -p 8080:8080 \
  -p 8081:8081 \
  -p 8082:8082 \
  -p 8090:8090 \
  -p \
  -d \
  -e CLUSTER_NAME=stargate \
  -e DEVELOPER_MODE=true \

Ensure the local instance of Stargate is running properly by tailing the logs for the container, and looking for the message that indicates Stargate is ready for traffic.
