I have to use the '/swap/v1/quote' on Rinkeby testnet but currently, the 0x-API are not supported by default for Rinkeby as mentioned in the documentation. so I was trying to run the backend locally for Rinkeby but facing the below error.

yarn run v1.22.17
$ node -r dotenv/config lib/src/index.js
{"level":"warn","time":1646210480405,"pid":13534,"hostname":"jayesh.local","msg":"skipping kafka client creation because no kafkaBrokers were passed in"}

These are the steps I followed to run the code:

  1. Cloned the repo git clone https://github.com/0xProject/0x-api.git
  2. Created a .env file


  1. Installed dependencies


  2. Updated docker-compose.yml

version: '3' services:
# ganache:
#     image: '0xorg/ganache-cli:6.5.10'
#     ports:
#         - '8545:8545'
#     environment:
#         VERSION: 8.0.1
#         CHAIN_ID: 1337
#         NETWORK_ID: 1337
    image: postgres:9.6
        - POSTGRES_USER=
        - POSTGRES_DB=api
    # persist the postgres data to disk so we don't lose it
    # on rebuilds.
        - ./postgres:/var/lib/postgresql/data
        - '5433:5433'
    image: redis:6.0
        - '6379:6379'
  1. Database Migrations

    yarn db:migrate

  2. Started the project

    docker-compose up

    yarn start

Versions used:

Docker: v20.10.8
Docker-Compose: v1.29.2
Yarn: v1.22.17
Node: v16.3.0
PostgreSQL: v14.2

Unfortunately, we don't support Rinkeby as a testnet officially so all the required contracts for running 0x API may not be deployed.

If you are looking to test some interactions between 0x API and some other project that is not available on Ropsten I would recommend you try using a forked Ethereum mainnet instead of Rinkeby, see here for a guide on how to do just that
