    • on weekends
    • outside of working hours
    • each week
    • each month
  • Relevant package files are discovered automatically
  • Supports monorepo architectures like Lerna or Yarn workspaces with no extra configuration
  • Bot behavior is customizable via configuration files (config as code)
  • Use ESLint-like shared config presets for ease of use and simplifying configuration (JSON format only)
  • Lock files are supported and updated in the same commit, including immediately resolving conflicts whenever PRs are merged
  • Get replacement PRs to migrate from a deprecated dependency to the community suggested replacement (npm packages only)

The Renovate Approach

We believe everyone benefits from automation, whether it's a little or a lot. This means that Renovate:

  • Adapts to your workflow
  • Allows you to configure its behavior
  • Will autodetect settings where possible

Using Renovate

Get started with Renovate by checking out our tutorial.


It's easiest to use the hosted Renovate app. Install the Renovate app now.

More details on the GitHub App installation.

Azure DevOps

There are two ways to run Renovate on Azure DevOps:

  • Renovate Me extension
  • Custom pipeline

Renovate Me extension

Go to the Visual Studio Marketplace and install the Renovate Me extension in your organization. From there you can create a pipeline with the RenovateMe task.

Note This extension is created and maintained personally by a Renovate developer/user so support requests relating to the extension itself cannot be answered directly in the main Renovate repository.

Custom pipeline

You can create a custom pipeline with a yml definition that triggers npx renovate. More details on how to configure the pipeline.

Bitbucket Cloud/Server, Forgejo, Gitea, GitLab

For Bitbucket Cloud, Bitbucket Server, Forgejo, Gitea and GitLab, use our self-hosting option.


Go to our documentation website to learn how to configure Renovate. We have a full list of configuration options.

To get help with your configuration, go to the discussions tab in the Renovate repository and open a new "config help" discussion post.


To run your own instance of Renovate you have several options:

  • Install the renovate CLI tool from npmjs, run it on a schedule (e.g. using cron)
  • Run the renovate/renovate Docker Hub image (same content/versions as the CLI tool), run it on a schedule
  • Run the renovate/renovate:slim Docker Hub image if you only use package managers that don't need third-party binaries (e.g. JavaScript, Docker, NuGet, pip)

More details on the self-hosting development.


If you want to contribute to Renovate or get a local copy running, please read the instructions in contributing guidelines. To get started look at the list of good first issues.
