Negoto is a simple and functional imageboard. It is mostly written in Ur/Web, which makes it extremely efficient and lightweight (at least compared to the more popular PHP-based imageboard), and ostensibly bug-free.

Build Status

Does this work?

Sort of. It runs fine on my server, but if you want to run it on yours you'll have to configure a few things (the paths in fileFfi.c, fileFfi.js, project.urp and bring your own lighttpd.conf file). There's also a few features that I'd like the 1.0 version to have, along with some small bugs to fix.

If you want to use it and have trouble installing it, feel free to open an issue and I'll try to get back to it and maybe finish it asap.


Negoto depends on OpenSSL, and it assumes that /dev/urandom exists and is readable.


The very least Negoto requires to build is:

There's some bugs with SQLite that at the moment are only fixed in my fork on the branch sqlite-fix, so you should build with that for the moment.

The normal installation also requires:

  • sass
  • SQLite3
  • lighttpd
  • ImageMagick's convert in your $PATH

To compile, simply clone the repository and invoke make:

git clone --recursive
cd negoto && make

To test it out, invoke make again:

make run

...and navigate to localhost:8080/negoto/Negoto/front on your browser.


Negoto comes with a read-only JSON API. The endpoints are described in
