Taiga Docker

We recently announced Taiga plans for the future and they greatly affect how we manage this repository and the current Taiga 6 release. Check it here.
ℹ️ If you're already using taiga-docker, follow this migration guide to use the new .env based deployment.

Note: You can access the older docker installation guide for documentation purposes, intended just for earlier versions of Taiga (prior to ver. 6.6.0)

Getting Started

This section intends to explain how to get Taiga up and running in a simple two steps, using docker and docker compose.

If you don't have docker installed, please follow installation instructions from docker.com (version 19.03.0+)

Additionally, it's necessary to have familiarity with Docker, docker compose and Docker repositories.

Note
branch stable should be used to deploy Taiga in production and main branch for development purposes.

Start the application

$ ./launch-all.sh

After some instants, when the application is started you can proceed to create the superuser with the following script:

$ ./taiga-manage.sh createsuperuser

The taiga-manage.sh script lets launch manage.py commands on the back instance:

$ ./taiga-manage.sh [COMMAND]

If you're testing it in your own machine, you can access the application in http://localhost:9000. If you're deploying in a server, you'll need to configure hosts and nginx as described later.

Taiga screenshot

As EXTRA: the default launch-all.sh script comes with penpot, the open-source solution for design and prototyping. The default access for the penpot application is http://localhost:9001

It's developed by the same team behind Taiga. If you want to give it a try, you can go to penpot's github or the help center to review its own configuration variables.

And finally if you just want to launch Taiga standalone, you can use the launch-taiga.sh script instead of the launch-all.sh.

Documentation

Currently, we have authored three main documentation hubs:

  • API: Our API documentation and reference for developing from Taiga API.
  • Documentation: If you need to install Taiga on your own server, this is the place to find some guides.
  • Taiga Community: This page is intended to be the support reference page for the users.

Bug reports

If you find a bug in Taiga you can always report it:

One of our fellow Taiga developers will search, find and hunt it as soon as possible.

Please, before reporting a bug, write down how can we reproduce it, your operating system, your browser and version, and if it's possible, a screenshot. Sometimes it takes less time to fix a bug if the developer knows how to find it.

Community

If you need help to setup Taiga, want to talk about some cool enhancemnt or you have some questions, please go to Taiga community.

If you want to be up to date about announcements of releases, important changes and so on, you can subscribe to our newsletter (you will find it by scrolling down at https://taiga.io) and follow @taigaio on Twitter.

Configuration

We've exposed the Basic configuration settings in Taiga to an .env file. We strongly recommend you to change it, or at least review its content, to avoid using the default values.

Both docker-compose.yml and docker-compose-inits.yml will read from this file to populate their environment variables, so, initially you don't need to change them. Edit these files just in case you require to enable Additional customization, or an Advanced configuration.

Refer to these sections for further information.

Basic Configuration

You will find basic configuration variables in the .env file. As stated before, we encourage you to edit these values, especially those affecting the security.

Database settings

These vars are used to create the database for Taiga and connect to it.

POSTGRES_USER=taiga  # user to connect to PostgreSQL
POSTGRES_PASSWORD=taiga  # database user's password

URLs settings

These vars set where your Taiga instance should be served, and the security protocols to use in the communication layer.

TAIGA_SCHEME=http  # serve Taiga using "http" or "https" (secured) connection
TAIGA_DOMAIN=localhost:9000  # Taiga's base URL
SUBPATH=""  # it'll be appended to the TAIGA_DOMAIN (use either "" or a "/subpath")
WEBSOCKETS_SCHEME=ws  # events connection protocol (use either "ws" or "wss")

The default configuration assumes Taiga is being served in a subdomain. For example:

TAIGA_SCHEME=https
TAIGA_DOMAIN=taiga.mycompany.com
SUBPATH=""
WEBSOCKETS_SCHEME=wss

If Taiga is being served in a subpath, instead of a subdomain, the configuration should be something like this:

TAIGA_SCHEME=https
TAIGA_DOMAIN=mycompany.com
SUBPATH="/taiga"
WEBSOCKETS_SCHEME=wss

Secret Key settings

This variable allows you to set the secret key in Taiga, used in the cryptographic signing.

SECRET_KEY="taiga-secret-key"  # Please, change it to an unpredictable value!

Email Settings

By default, emails will be printed in the standard output (EMAIL_BACKEND=console). If you have your own SMTP service, change it to EMAIL_BACKEND=smtp and configure the rest of these variables with the values supplied by your SMTP provider:

EMAIL_BACKEND=console  # use an SMTP server or display the emails in the console (either "smtp" or "console")
EMAIL_HOST=smtp.host.example.com  # SMTP server address
EMAIL_PORT=587   # default SMTP port
EMAIL_HOST_USER=user  # user to connect the SMTP server
EMAIL_HOST_PASSWORD=password  # SMTP user's password
EMAIL_DEFAULT_FROM=changeme@example.com  # email address for the automated emails

# EMAIL_USE_TLS/EMAIL_USE_SSL are mutually exclusive (only set one of those to True)
EMAIL_USE_TLS=True  # use TLS (secure) connection with the SMTP server
EMAIL_USE_SSL=False  # use implicit TLS (secure) connection with the SMTP server

Queue manager settings

These variables are used to leave messages in the rabbitmq services.

RABBITMQ_USER=taiga  # user to connect to RabbitMQ
RABBITMQ_PASS=taiga  # RabbitMQ user's password
RABBITMQ_VHOST=taiga  # RabbitMQ container name
RABBITMQ_ERLANG_COOKIE=secret-erlang-cookie  # unique value shared by any connected instance of RabbitMQ

Attachments settings

You can configure how long the attachments will be accessible by changing the token expiration timer. After that amount of seconds the token will expire, but you can always get a new attachment url with an active token.

ATTACHMENTS_MAX_AGE=360  # token expiration date (in seconds)

Telemetry Settings

Telemetry anonymous data is collected in order to learn about the use of Taiga and improve the platform based on real scenarios. You may want to enable this to help us shape future Taiga.

ENABLE_TELEMETRY=True

You can opt out by setting this variable to False. By default, it's True.

Additional customization

All these customization options are by default disabled and require you to edit docker-compose.yml.

You should add the corresponding environment variables in the proper services (or in &default-back-environment group) with a valid value in order to enable them. Please, do not modify it unless you know what you’re doing.

Session cookies in Django Admin

Taiga doesn't use session cookies in its API as it stateless. However, the Django Admin (/admin/) uses session cookie for authentication. By default, Taiga is configured to work behind HTTPS. If you're using HTTP (despite the strong recommendations against it), you'll need to configure the following environment variables so you can access the Admin:

Add to &default-back-environment environments

SESSION_COOKIE_SECURE: "False"
CSRF_COOKIE_SECURE: "False"

More info about those variables can be found here.

Public registration

Public registration is disabled by default. If you want to allow a public register, you have to enable public registration on both, frontend and backend.

Note
Be careful with the upper and lower case in these settiings. We will use 'True' for the backend and 'true' for the frontend (this is not a typo, otherwise it won't work).

Add to &default-back-environment environments

PUBLIC_REGISTER_ENABLED: "True"

Add to taiga-front service environments

PUBLIC_REGISTER_ENABLED: "true"

Important:

Taiga (in its default configuration) disables both Gitlab or Github oauth buttons whenever the public registration option hasn't been activated. To be able to use Github/Gitlab login/registration, make sure you have public registration activated on your Taiga instance.

GitHub OAuth login

Used for login with Github. This feature is disabled by default.

Follow the documentation (GitHub - Creating an OAuth App) in Github, when save application Github displays the ID and Secret.

Note
Be careful with the upper and lower case in these settiings. We will use 'True' for the backend and 'true' for the frontend (this is not a typo, otherwise it won't work).

Note
GITHUB_API_CLIENT_ID / GITHUB_CLIENT_ID should have the same value.

Add to &default-back-environment environments

TRELLO_IMPORTER_SECRET_KEY: "secret-key-from-trello"

Add to taiga-front service environments

ENABLE_TRELLO_IMPORTER: "true"

Advanced configuration

The advanced configuration will ignore the environment variables in docker-compose.yml or docker-compose-inits.yml. Skip this section if you're using env vars.

It requires you to map the configuration files of taiga-back and taiga-front services to local files in order to unlock further configuration options.

Map a config.py file

From taiga-back download the file settings/config.py.prod.example and rename it:

mv settings/config.py.prod.example settings/config.py

Edit config.py with your own configuration:

  • Taiga secret key: it's important to change it. It must have the same value as the secret key in taiga-events and taiga-protected
  • Taiga urls: configure where Taiga would be served using TAIGA_URL, SITES and FORCE_SCRIPT_NAME (see examples below)
  • Connection to PostgreSQL; check DATABASES section in the file
  • Connection to RabbitMQ for taiga-events; check "EVENTS" section in the file
  • Connection to RabbitMQ for taiga-async; check "TAIGA ASYNC" section in the file
  • Credentials for email; check "EMAIL" section in the file
  • Enable/disable anonymous telemetry; check "TELEMETRY" section in the file

Example to configure Taiga in subdomain:

TAIGA_SITES_SCHEME = "https"
TAIGA_SITES_DOMAIN = "taiga.mycompany.com"
FORCE_SCRIPT_NAME = ""

Example to configure Taiga in subpath:

TAIGA_SITES_SCHEME = "https"
TAIGA_SITES_DOMAIN = "taiga.mycompany.com"
FORCE_SCRIPT_NAME = "/taiga"

Check as well the rest of the configuration if you need to enable some advanced features.

Map the file into /taiga-back/settings/config.py. Have in mind that you have to map it both in docker-compose.yml and docker-compose-inits.yml. You can check the x-volumes section in docker-compose.yml with an example.

Map a conf.json file

From taiga-front download the file dist/conf.example.json and rename it:

mv dist/conf.example.json dist/conf.json

Edit it with your own configuration:

  • Taiga urls: configure where Taiga would be served using api, eventsUrl and baseHref (see examples below)

Example of conf.json to serve Taiga in a subdomain:

{
    "api": "https://taiga.mycompany.com/api/v1/",
    "eventsUrl": "wss://taiga.mycompany.com/events",
    "baseHref": "/",

Example of conf.json to serve Taiga in subpath:

{
    "api": "https://mycompany.com/taiga/api/v1/",
    "eventsUrl": "wss://mycompany.com/taiga/events",
    "baseHref": "/taiga/",

Check as well the rest of the configuration if you need to enable some advanced features.

Map the file into /taiga-front/dist/config.py.

Configure an admin user

$ docker compose up -d

$ docker compose -f docker-compose.yml -f docker-compose-inits.yml run --rm taiga-manage createsuperuser

Up and running

Once everything has been installed, launch all the services and check the result:

$ docker compose up -d

Configure the proxy

Your host configuration needs to make a proxy to http://localhost:9000.

If Taiga is being served in a subdomain:

  server {
      server_name taiga.mycompany.com;
      
      location / {
        proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
        proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
        proxy_set_header X-Scheme $scheme;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
        proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
        proxy_redirect off;
        proxy_pass http://localhost:9000/;
      }
      
      # Events
      location /events {
        proxy_pass http://localhost:9000/events;
        proxy_http_version 1.1;
        proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
        proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
        proxy_set_header Host $host;
        proxy_connect_timeout 7d;
        proxy_send_timeout 7d;
        proxy_read_timeout 7d;
      }
  
      # TLS: Configure your TLS following the best practices inside your company
      # Logs and other configurations
  }

If Taiga is being served in a subpath instead of a subdomain, the configuration should be something like:

server {
  server_name mycompany.com;
  
  location /taiga/ {
    proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
    proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
    proxy_set_header X-Scheme $scheme;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Proto $scheme;
    proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
    proxy_redirect off;
    proxy_pass http://localhost:9000/;
  }
  
  # Events
  location /taiga/events {
    proxy_pass http://localhost:9000/events;
    proxy_http_version 1.1;
    proxy_set_header Upgrade $http_upgrade;
    proxy_set_header Connection "upgrade";
    proxy_set_header Host $host;
    proxy_connect_timeout 7d;
    proxy_send_timeout 7d;
    proxy_read_timeout 7d;
  }
  
  # TLS: Configure your TLS following the best practices inside your company
  # Logs and other configurations
}

Change between subpath and subdomain

If you're changing Taiga configuration from default subdomain (https://taiga.mycompany.com) to subpath (http://mycompany.com/subpath) or vice versa, on top of adjusting the configuration as said above, you should consider changing the TAIGA_SECRET_KEY so the refresh works properly for the end user.
