While it is perfectly possible to run the command
yarn start to get the server going, this also requires that
you’ve got a database up and running locally as well. This is obviously not ideal so Composer comes pre-packaged
with configuration for Docker. With Docker you can run the service in a container, including all required databases
from the command prompt.

Debugging in Visual Studio Code¶
Composer also is designed for work with Visual Studio Code out of the box. If you are using VS Code all you need to do
F5 once your docker container is up and running. It will automatically connect to your instance and allow
for debugging of the service directly.
