We wanted a simple server for sending and receiving messages (in real time per web socket). For this, not many open source projects existed and most of the existing ones were abandoned. Also, a requirement was that it can be self-hosted. We know there are many free and commercial push services out there.
- REST-API for
- sending messages
- receiving messages per websocket
- user management
- client/device & application management
- REST-API Documentation (also available at

The docker image is available on docker hub at gotify/server.
$ docker run -p 80:80 gotify/server
Also there is a specific docker image for arm-7 processors (raspberry pi), named gotify/server-arm7.
$ docker run -p 80:80 gotify/server-arm7

Add Message Examples
You can obtain an application-token from the apps tab inside the UI or using the REST-API (
NOTE: Assuming Gotify is running on
curl -X POST "http://localhost:8008/message?token=<token-from-application>" -F "title=My Title" -F "message=This is my message"
Setup Dev Environment
Download go dependencies with golang/dep.
$ dep ensure
Run golang server.
$ go run app.go
Commands must be executed inside the ui directory.
Download dependencies with npm.
$ npm install
Star the UI development server.
$ npm start
http://localhost:3000 inside your favorite browser.
The UI requires a Gotify server running on
localhost:80 this can be adjusted inside the ui/src/index.tsx.
$ go build app.go
$ npm run build
The project has a CGO reference (because of sqlite3), therefore a GCO cross compiler is needed for compiling for other platforms. See .travis.yml on how we do that.
The tests can be executed with:
$ make test # or $ go test ./...
