As a separate service

The server starts in a container from docker image and listens 8080 port for GET-requests.

Integrate service into your stack (for example, docker compose)

    image: wapmorgan/morphos:3.2.29
      - 8093:8080

or standalone container:

docker run --env NUM_WORKERS=4 --rm --publish 8093:8080 -v wapmorgan/morphos:3.2.29

Tip: adjust NUM_WORKERS env variable if you will send a lot of load to service. By default, it's 4.

There are API: marks in documentation for functions, that exposed as service endpoints. Just pass them the same arguments as to PHP-functions/methods.
