Threema Web

Build status License

Threema Web is a web client for Threema, a privacy-focussed end-to-end encrypted mobile messenger hosted and developed in Switzerland. With Threema Web, you can use Threema on your Desktop without compromising security.


Threema Web establishes a direct connection between Desktop and mobile device using WebRTC. Signaling is end-to-end encrypted with SaltyRTC. If both devices are in the same network, no server is involved when synchronizing messages between the devices, and the digital footprint is reduced to the bare minimum.

For more information, see the Threema Web Whitepaper.


Threema Web is written using TypeScript and AngularJS 1. Dependencies are managed with npm.

Install development dependencies:

npm install

Run the dev server:

npm run serve:live

Then open the URL in your browser:

chromium http://localhost:9966

(Note that this setup should not be used in production. To run Threema Web on a server, please follow the instructions at docs/self_hosting.md.)


To run tests:

npm run build
chromium tests/testsuite.html

To run linting checks:

npm run lint

You can also install a pre-push hook to do the linting:

echo -e '#!/bin/sh\nnpm run lint' > .git/hooks/pre-push
chmod +x .git/hooks/pre-push


The configuration of Threema Web can be tweaked in src/config.ts:


  • SELF_HOSTED: Set this to true if this instance of Threema Web isn't being hosted on web.threema.ch.


  • SALTYRTC_HOST: Set this to the hostname of the SaltyRTC server that you want to use. If set to null, the hostname will be constructed based on the SALTYRTC_HOST_PREFIX and the SALTYRTC_HOST_SUFFIX values.
  • SALTYRTC_PORT: The port of the SaltyRTC server to be used.
  • SALTYRTC_SERVER_KEY: The public permanent key of the SaltyRTC server. Set this value to null if your server does not provide a public permanent key, or if you don't want to verify it.


  • SALTYRTC_STUN: Configuration object for the WebRTC STUN server.
  • SALTYRTC_TURN: Configuration object for the WebRTC TURN server.


  • PUSH_URL: The server URL used to deliver push notifications to the app.
