Dillinger uses a number of open source projects to work properly:

And of course Dillinger itself is open source with a public repository on GitHub.


Dillinger requires Node.js v4+ to run.

Download and extract the latest pre-built release.

Install the dependencies and devDependencies and start the server.

$ cd dillinger
$ npm install -d
$ node app

For production environments…

$ npm install --production
$ npm run predeploy
$ NODE_ENV=production node app


Dillinger is currently extended with the following plugins

  • Dropbox
  • Github
  • Google Drive
  • OneDrive

Readmes, how to use them in your own application can be found here:

Dillinger uses Gulp + Webpack for fast developing. Make a change in your file and instantanously see your updates!

Open your favorite Terminal and run these commands.

First Tab: sh $ node app

Second Tab: sh $ gulp watch

(optional) Third: sh $ karma start #### Building for source For production release: sh $ gulp build --prod Generating pre-built zip archives for distribution: sh $ gulp build dist --prod ### Docker Dillinger is very easy to install and deploy in a Docker container.

By default, the Docker will expose port 80, so change this within the Dockerfile if necessary. When ready, simply use the Dockerfile to build the image.

cd dillinger
npm run-script build-docker

This will create the dillinger image and pull in the necessary dependencies. Moreover, this uses a hack to get a more optimized npm build by copying the dependencies over and only installing when the package.json itself has changed. Look inside the package.json and the Dockerfile for more details on how this works.

Once done, run the Docker image and map the port to whatever you wish on your host. In this example, we simply map port 8000 of the host to port 80 of the Docker (or whatever port was exposed in the Dockerfile):

docker run -d -p 8000:8080 --restart="always" <youruser>/dillinger:latest

Verify the deployment by navigating to your server address in your preferred browser.

Kubernetes + Google Cloud
