  • Node 14
  • MySQL (5.7+)

Keep in mind that after installing you need to add a season via the admin ui (/admin) using the password from the environment variable (ADMIN_PASSWORD).

Free hosting with Vercel & Planetscale

Hilde is designed in a way that it could easily be hosted for free, using Vercel for hosting and Planetscale for the database.

Deploy with Vercel

Docker Compose

Example docker-compose.yml:

version: '3'

      - database
      - internal
    image: nehalist/hilde
      - ''
      - DATABASE_URL=mysql://root:hildepw@database:3306/hilde
      - ADMIN_PASSWORD=v3rys3cr3tp4ssw0rd

      - internal
    image: mysql:8.0
      - MYSQL_DATABASE=hilde
      - MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=hildepw
      - db:/var/lib/mysql



After running docker-compose up -d Hilde is running on localhost:3000.

Manually (for development)

  1. Clone/fork the repository
  2. Run npm ci to install dependencies
  3. Run docker-compose up -d in order to start the database container (or adjust the .env file to use a different db)
  4. Run npm run dev to start the development server
  5. Add awesome features.


The official Docker image of Hilde is available on Docker Hub. Run it locally via:

  1. Run docker run -p -e DATABASE_URL=mysql://<user>:<password>@<host>:<port>/<db> nehalist/hilde
  2. Open http://localhost:3000
