Secret is an open source tool made by privacy freaks for privacy freaks, letting you send AES encrypted notes that will be self-destructed after being read. Live demo

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine

Using Docker

Clone the repository and navigate into it:

git clone && cd secret

Build and start the containers:

docker-compose up --build

Everything should be working now, visit http://localhost:3000 for the user facing interface


this is a simply MongoDB & Express CRUD application, nothing fancy, you must have a MongoDB server up and runnning for this.

To get the server up and running, first navigate into the server directory:

cd server

Install the dependencies using npm:

npm install

The application expects several environment variables:

  • PORT (optional) - to what port port should the application listen take requests on, if not provided the app will listen on port 8080
  • MONGO_CONNECTION_STRING - The MongoDB connection string, the database we store notes in

therefore we will export the MONGO_CONNECTION_STRING variable and assign it our connection string, replace it with your own credentials:

export MONGO_CONNECTION_STRING=mongodb://localhost:27017/secret

start the server

npm run start


The client was build using the Vue.js framework Nuxt, more info about SSR and static site generation can be found in official documentation.

Navigate into the client directory:

cd client

Install the dependencies using npm:

npm install

Start the development server:

npm run dev
