Docker Image for Taiga

What is Taiga?

Taiga is a project management platform for startups and agile developers & designers who want a simple, beautiful tool that makes work truly enjoyable.


You need to setup a posgresql container to store your database information.

Quick setup

The simpliest way to run a local server is to update docker-compose.yml and launch it with:

docker-compose up

Please look the config.env to know all possible environment variables.

General setup

You can get the image directly from dockerhub with and link it with postgres:

docker run -itd \
    --link taiga-postgres:postgres \
    -p 80:80 \
    -e \
    -e TAIGA_DB_HOST=postgres \
    -e TAIGA_DB_USER=postgres \
    -e TAIGA_DB_PASSWORD=password \
    -v ./media:/usr/src/taiga-back/media \

See Summarize below for a complete example. Partial explanation of arguments:

  • --link is used to link a database container. See Configure Database for more details.
  • -v is used to mount a media folder from host. It is necessary to keep your uploaded data safe.

Once your container is running, use the default administrator account to login: username is admin, and the password is 123123.

If you're having trouble connecting, make sure you've configured your TAIGA_HOSTNAME. It will default to localhost, which almost certainly is not what you want to use.

Extra configuration options

Use the following environmental variables to generate a for taiga-back.

  • -e TAIGA_HOSTNAME= (required set this to the server host like
  • -e TAIGA_SSL=True (see Enabling HTTPS)
  • -e TAIGA_SECRET_KEY (set this to a random string to configure the SECRET_KEY value for taiga-back; defaults to an insecure random string)
  • -e TAIGA_SKIP_DB_CHECK (set to skip the database check that attempts to automatically setup initial database)
  • -e TAIGA_ENABLE_EMAIL=True (see Configuring SMTP)
  • -e TAIGA_REGISTER_ENABLED=True (enable public registration)
  • -e TAIGA_SLACK=True (to configure the plugin, visit the Taiga documentation)

Note: Database variables are also required, see Using Database server. These are required even when using a container for your database.


Uploads to Taiga go to the media folder, located by default at /usr/src/taiga-back/media.

Use -v /my/own/media:/usr/src/taiga-back/media as part of your docker run command to ensure uploads are not lost easily.


Taiga has an optional dependency that adds additional usability to Taiga (like broadcasting updates to other clients), see Taiga Events.

Full setup

To sum it all up, if you want to run Taiga without using docker-compose, run this:

docker run --name taiga-postgres -d -e POSTGRES_PASSWORD=password postgres
docker run --name taiga-redis -d redis:3
docker run --name taiga-rabbit -d --hostname taiga rabbitmq:3
docker run --name taiga-celery -d --link taiga-rabbit:rabbit celery
docker run --name taiga-events -d --link taiga-rabbit:rabbit novanet/taiga-events

docker run -itd \
  --name taiga \
  --link taiga-postgres:postgres \
  --link taiga-redis:redis \
  --link taiga-rabbit:rabbit \
  --link taiga-events:events \
  -p 80:80 \
  -e TAIGA_HOSTNAME=$(docker-machine ip default) \
  -v ./media:/usr/src/taiga-back/media \
