Miniflux is an open-source minimalist Feed Reader written in Go. It is simple to use, and it integrates with third-party services like Pinboard, Instapaper, and Pocket. It is also a Progressive Web App so you can install it on the phone as a native application. The developers of Miniflux offer hosted service at for $15/year.

Miniflux project ships a statically compiled binary for Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, and Mac OS. You can directly install the binary on a server and run it using SystemD (or similar init systems). Miniflux also releases packages for Debian-based and RPM-based distributions.

This repository packages the Miniflux binary in a Docker image to run it in the container.


Miniflux is a stateless application and uses a Postgres database to store the data. Start the PostgreSQL database in a separate container or use a remote database. Create a new database for Miniflux to use. Miniflux requires the hstore extension to be enabled.


Create the Miniflux container, and pass database credentials as environment variables. The PostgreSQL variables are used by Docker image to generate DATABASE_URL for Miniflux. The image supports all the configuration variables described here.

docker run -d \
	--name "miniflux" \
	-e POSTGRES_DB="miniflux" \
	-e POSTGRES_USER="miniflux" \
	-e POSTGRES_PASSWORD="password" \
	-e LISTEN_ADDR="" \
	-p 8080:8080 \ \

Tip: Set RUN_MIGRATIONS environment variable to automatically run database migrations.

Once the Miniflux server is running, create the admin user by executing in the container.

docker exec -it miniflux miniflux -create-admin
