Change to different repository branch when Mayan is launched using Docker Compose


I am working on some changes within Mayan EMDS by forking the repository and creating a separate branch for my changes. However, when I run the app using docker compose, it runs just fine but it does not show any of my changes. My suspicion is that the docker-compose.yml file may contain some parameter that defaults it to a certain branch.

I would like to change it such that I can run my version of the app and any other branches I may create in the future. How can I achieve that?


When working with Docker you need to build a new image and deploy that custom image instead.

Would I have to re-build the docker image each time I make a change?
