Host your very own Tiny Tiny RSS in Docker

Some weeks ago I ranted about the dawn of Google Reader and the declining of RSS and Atom feeds on the Web. I used this extensively, but to be honest, once Google Reader was canceled. After trying some hosted services, I was pointed to Tiny Tiny RSS, which is a lightweight feed reader which can be hosted by yourself.

Tiny Tiny RSS is a free and open source web-based news feed (RSS/Atom) reader and aggregator

The installation and update process, however, is not very intuitive and requires a couple of manuals steps. In addition, you need PHP as well as a MySQL or Postgres database.

Eventually, I was looking for Docker containers, but none of the images I evaluated was easy to set up. Therefore, I decided to create my own image with one major goal:

Make it easy to setup and run Tiny Tiny RSS

I created the docker-ttrss GitHub project to achieve exactly this goal. To get a standard ttrss up and running, simply checkout the repository and start the containers.

git clone https://github.com/aheil/docker-ttrss.git
docker-compose up

You’ll have a basic installation with one NGINX one PHP (ttrss) and one Postgres container up and running. To access ttrss, navigate to http://locahost:8080. You can log in using the standard credentials:

Login: admin
Password: password

It is highly recommended to change the password and create a user account afterwards.

I use this image already day by day – still improving it step by step. It takes away the burden of setting up and initializing the database. If you feel this useful, please let me know by opening an issue on GitHub.
