Configuration File

Instead of answering questions in the CLI you can also provide your desired configuration in a file with the following format:

ctfFramework: CTFd | FBCTF | RootTheBox
juiceShopUrl: https://juice-shop.herokuapp.com
ctfKey: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bkimminich/juice-shop/master/ctf.key # can also be actual key instead URL
countryMapping: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bkimminich/juice-shop/master/config/fbctf.yml # ignored for CTFd and RootTheBox
insertHints: none | free | paid # "paid" handled as "free" for CTFd
insertHintUrls: none | free | paid # optional for FBCTF; "paid" handled as "free" for CTFd
insertHintSnippets: none | free | paid # optional for FBCTF; "paid" handled as "free" for CTFd

You can then run the generator with:

juice-shop-ctf --config myconfig.yml

Optionally you can also choose the name of the output file:

juice-shop-ctf --config myconfig.yml --output challenges.out

You can ignore certificate warnings like this:

juice-shop-ctf --ignoreSslWarnings

Docker Container Docker Automated build Docker Pulls Docker Stars

Share your current directory with the /data volume of your bkimminich/juice-shop-ctf Docker container and run the interactive mode with:

docker run -ti --rm -v $(pwd):/data bkimminich/juice-shop-ctf

Alternatively you can provide a configuration file via:

docker run -ti --rm -v $(pwd):/data bkimminich/juice-shop-ctf --config myconfig.yml

Choosing the name of the output file is also possible:

docker run -ti --rm -v $(pwd):/data bkimminich/juice-shop-ctf --config myconfig.yml --output challenges.out

On Windows cmd.exe you have to use %cd% instead of $(pwd) to mount your current working directory.

For detailed step-by-step instructions and examples please refer to the Hosting a CTF event chapter in our (free) companion guide ebook.

Troubleshooting Gitter

If you need help with the application setup please check the Troubleshooting section below or post your specific problem or question in the official Gitter Chat.

  • If using Docker Toolbox on Windows make sure that you also enable port forwarding for all required ports from Host to for TCP in the default VM's network adapter in VirtualBox. For CTFd you need to forward port 8000.
