Or if you are on Windows:

  • We are assuming the first cd is changing the directory to wherever you set up your project.

  • The ./ or zappashell.bat fires up a Docker container based on the Docker image you created using the Dockerfile

  • The source ve/bin/activate activates the Python Virtual Environment within the Docker container.

  • And then you'll be ready to start working when you see the prompt: (ve) zappashell>
