Hydrus in a container(HiC)

Latest hydrus client that runs in docker 24/7. Employs xvfb and vnc. Runs on alpine.

TL;DR: docker run --name hydrusclient -d -p 5800:5800 -p 5900:5900 ghcr.io/hydrusnetwork/hydrus:latest. Connect to noVNC via http://yourdockerhost:5800/vnc.html or use Tiger VNC Viewer or any other VNC client and connect on port 5900.

For persistent storage you can either create a named volume or mount a new/existing db path -v /hydrus/client/db:/opt/hydrus/db. The client runs with default permissions of 1000:1000, this can be changed by the ENV UID and GID(not working atm, fixed to 1000) will be fixed somedayâ„¢.

The container will NOT fix the permissions inside the db folder. CHOWN YOUR DB FOLDER CONTENT ON YOUR OWN

If you have enough RAM, mount /tmp as tmpfs. If not, download more RAM.

As of v359 hydrus understands IPFS nocopy. And can be easily run with go-ipfs container. Read Hydrus IPFS help. Mount HOST_PATH_DB/client_files to /data/client_files in ipfs. Go manage the ipfs service and set the path to /data/client_files, you'll know where to put it in.

Further containerized application of interest:

  • Hybooru: Hydrus-based booru-styled imageboard in React, inspired by hyve.
  • hydownloader: Alternative way of downloading and importing files. Decoupled from hydrus logic and limitations.
