Nyaa replacement Build Status Go Report Card GoDocCoverage Status


The aim of this project is to write a fully featured nyaa replacement in golang that anyone will be able to deploy locally or remotely.


As of August 17th the trello board has been moved to GitHub Projects

The Roadmap will give you an overview of the features and tasks that the project are currently discussing, working on and have completed. If you are looking for a feature that is not listed just make a GitHub Issue and it will get added to the trello board.

You can view the public GitHub Projects board here or click on the "Roadmap".


  • Golang golang


All tested versions of Ubuntu fail to build, use a different OS or docker

  • Install Golang (version >=1.8)
  • go get -u
  • go get

On Windows, a specific version of GCC is used to build a specific depedency we use The GCC version packaged with msys2 should work

Now proceed to build godep Either use:

  • godep go build Or use this to have the build version in index.html:

  • godep go build -ldflags "-X main.buildversion=$(git rev-parse HEAD)" Or you can build using (Windows & Linux):

  • ./

  • Download the DB and place it in your root folder named as "nyaa.db" (You want the merged.sqlite3 database, see the dev IRC for more info)

  • ./nyaa

  • You can now access your local site over on localhost:9999


Type ./nyaa -h for the list of options.


  • Edit the unit file os/nyaa.service to your liking
  • Copy the package's content so that your unit file can find them.
  • Copy the unit file in /usr/lib/systemd/system
  • systemctl daemon-reload
  • systemctl start nyaa

The provided unit file uses options directly; if you prefer a config file, do the following:

  • ./nyaa -print-defaults > /etc/nyaa.conf
  • Edit nyaa.conf to your liking
  • Replace in the unit file the options by -conf /etc/nyaa.conf


We support docker for easy development and deployment. Simply install docker and docker-compose by following the instructions here.

Once you've successfully installed docker, make sure you have the database file in the project's directory as nyaa.db. Then, follow these steps to build and run the application.

Windows Users If you get "standard_init_linux.go:178: exec user process caused "no such file or directory" download dos2unix and run "dos2unix.exe" on the /deploy/ to convert CR+LF to LF.

# Make sure the project is in here $GOPATH/src/
$ cd deploy/
# You may choose another backend by pointing to the
# appropriate docker-compose file.
$ docker-compose -f docker-compose.sqlite.yml build
$ docker-compose -f docker-compose.sqlite.yml up

Access the website by going to localhost:9999.

For postgres, place the dump in the toplevel directory and name it to nyaa_psql.backup.
