EdX Devstack is your tool for developing and testing Open edX on your local computer. Devstack is a Vagrant instance that uses the same system requirements as a production system.

Devstack includes the following edX components:

  • The edX Learning Management System (LMS)
  • EdX Studio, for course development
  • Forums
  • Open Response Assessments

Devstack Simplifies certain production settings to make development more convenient. For example, nginx and gunicorn are disabled in Devstack; Devstack uses Django’s runserver instead.

To run Devstack, you must install VirtualBox 4.3.12 or greater, and Vagrant 1.6.5 or greater.
