Get SilverStrike running on your machine

The easiest way to deploy SilverStrike is to clone this repository and use the provided docker-compose file. Check out you own branch so you can persist your configuration. You need to set a SECRET_KEY and should update the domain names and then you can start it up. You can generate yourself a random secrety key by running python -c 'from import get_random_secret_key; print(get_random_secret_key())'

After starting the container, you should create yourself a user account docker-compose exec -it ags python createsuperuser

To update SilverStrike simply fetch the changes from GitHub and rebuild your container.

By default sqlite is used which should be enough for a local installation. If you'd rather use postgresdb or mariadb you can uncomment the relevant parts in the docker-compose.

In the deploy directory you can find a couple of files:

  • nginx.conf minimal nginx configuration for a reverse proxy setup
  • Use this file to override any of the settings found in
  • If you want to use some kind of external authentication you could use this as a starting point


You can contribute in several ways. If you know how to code or are a designer, you are welcome to contribute using pull requests.
If you speak languages other than english, you are welcome to help translate SilverStrike.

If nothing of the above suits you, you can still contribute by opening issues about defects and things that could be improved or request entirely new features that you think would help others.
