Mango

Patreon Build Gitter

Mango is a self-hosted manga server and reader. Its features include

  • Multi-user support
  • OPDS support
  • Dark/light mode switch
  • Supported formats: .cbz, .zip, .cbr and .rar
  • Supports nested folders in library
  • Automatically stores reading progress
  • Built-in MangaDex downloader
  • The web reader is responsive and works well on mobile, so there is no need for a mobile app
  • All the static files are embedded in the binary, so the deployment process is easy and painless

Please check the Wiki for more information.

Installation

Pre-built Binary

Simply download the pre-built binary file mango for the latest release. All the dependencies are statically linked, and it should work with most Linux systems on amd64.

Docker

  1. Make sure you have docker installed and running. You will also need docker-compose
  2. Clone the repository
  3. Copy the env.example file to .env
  4. Fill out the values in the .env file. Note that the main and config directories will be created if they don't already exist. The files in these folders will be owned by the root user
  5. Run docker-compose up. This should build the docker image and start the container with Mango running inside
  6. Head over to localhost:9000 (or a different port if you changed it) to log in

Docker (via Dockerhub)

The official docker images are available on Dockerhub.

Build from source

  1. Make sure you have crystal, shards and yarn installed. You might also need to install the development headers of some libraries. Please see the Dockerfile for the full list of dependencies
  2. Clone the repository
  3. make && sudo make install
  4. Start Mango by running the command mango
  5. Head over to localhost:9000 to log in
