Build Go Report Card Go Version

Prebid Server

Prebid Server is an open source implementation of Server-Side Header Bidding. It is managed by, and upholds the principles from the Prebid Code of Conduct.

This project does not support the same set of Bidders as Prebid.js, although there is overlap. The current set can be found in the adapters package. If you don't see the one you want, feel free to contribute it.

For more information, see:

Please consider registering your Prebid Server to get on the mailing list for updates, etc.


First install Go version 1.16 or newer.

Note that prebid-server is using Go modules. We officially support the most recent two major versions of the Go runtime. However, if you'd like to use a version <1.13 and are inside GOPATH GO111MODULE needs to be set to GO111MODULE=on.

Download and prepare Prebid Server:

git clone src/
cd src/

Run the automated tests:


Or just run the server locally:

go build .

Load the landing page in your browser at http://localhost:8000/. For the full API reference, see the endpoint documentation

Go Modules

The packages within this repository are intended to be used as part of the Prebid Server compiled binary. If you choose to import Prebid Server packages in other projects, please understand we make no promises on the stability of exported types.
