Each Divio project includes three environments for the application by default.
The three environments are created in Docker containers from the same images.
- Local, running on your own computer
- Test, running on our Cloud servers
- Live, running on our Cloud servers
In our recommended workflow, development is done locally, before being deployed to Test and finally to Live.
It is also possible to set up multiple cloud environments for a project. For example, a common scheme is to use four: Development, Testing, QA, Production.
Default project conditions¶
Some of these conditions may be readily altered according your needs, for example the
setting. See also How to run a local project in live configuration.
