listmonk

listmonk is a standalone, self-hosted, newsletter and mailing list manager. It is fast, feature-rich, and packed into a single binary. It uses a PostgreSQL database as its data store.

Installation

Docker

The latest image is available on DockerHub at listmonk/listmonk:latest. Use the sample docker-compose.yml to run listmonk and Postgres DB with docker-compose as follows:

Demo

mkdir listmonk-demo
sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/knadh/listmonk/master/install-demo.sh)"

The demo does not persist Postgres after the containers are removed. DO NOT use this demo setup in production.

Production

Easy Docker install

This setup is recommended if you want to quickly setup listmonk in production.

mkdir listmonk
sh -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/knadh/listmonk/master/install-prod.sh)"

The above shell script performs the following actions:

  • Downloads docker-compose.yml and generates a config.toml.
  • Runs a Postgres container and installs the database schema.
  • Runs the listmonk container.

NOTE: It’s recommended to examine the contents of the shell script, before running in your environment.

Manual Docker install

The following workflow is recommended to setup listmonk manually using docker-compose. You are encouraged to customise the contents of docker-compose.yml to your needs. The overall setup looks like:

  • docker-compose up db to run the Postgres DB.
  • docker-compose run --rm app ./listmonk --install to setup the DB (or --upgrade to upgrade an existing DB).
  • Copy config.toml.sample to your directory and make the following changes:
    • app.address => 0.0.0.0:9000 (Port forwarding on Docker will work only if the app is advertising on all interfaces.)
    • db.host => listmonk_db (Container Name of the DB container)
  • Run docker-compose up app and visit http://localhost:9000.

More information on docs.


Binary

  • Download the latest release and extract the listmonk binary.
  • ./listmonk --new-config to generate config.toml. Then, edit the file.
  • ./listmonk --install to setup the Postgres DB (or --upgrade to upgrade an existing DB. Upgrades are idempotent and running them multiple times have no side effects).
  • Run ./listmonk and visit http://localhost:9000.
