Getting started

Homer is a full static html/js dashboard, generated from the source in /src using webpack. It's meant to be served by an HTTP server, it will not work if you open dist/index.html directly over file:// protocol.

See documentation for information about the configuration (assets/config.yml) options.

Using docker

docker run -d \
  -p 8080:8080 \
  -v </your/local/assets/>:/www/assets \
  --restart=always \

Environment variables:

  • INIT_ASSETS (default: 1) Install example configuration file & assets (favicons, ...) to help you get started.

  • SUBFOLDER (default: null) If you would like to host Homer in a subfolder, (ex: http://my-domain/**homer**), set this to the subfolder path (ex /homer).

Using docker-compose

The docker-compose.yml file must be edited to match your needs. You probably want to set the port mapping and volume binding (equivalent to -p and -v arguments):

  - /your/local/assets/:/www/assets
  - 8080:8080

Then launch the container:

cd /path/to/docker-compose.yml/
docker-compose up -d

Using the release tarball (prebuilt, ready to use)

Download and extract the latest release ( from the release page, rename the assets/config.yml.dist file to assets/config.yml, and put it behind a web server.

cd homer
cp assets/config.yml.dist assets/config.yml
npx serve # or python -m http.server 8010 or apache, nginx ...

Build manually

# Using yarn (recommended)
yarn install
yarn build

# **OR** Using npm
npm install
npm run build

Then your dashboard is ready to use in the /dist directory.
