Quick try


# for SQLite
docker run -d --name nocodb \
-v "$(pwd)"/nocodb:/usr/app/data/ \
-p 8080:8080 \

# for MySQL
docker run -d --name nocodb-mysql \
-v "$(pwd)"/nocodb:/usr/app/data/ \
-p 8080:8080 \
-e NC_DB="mysql2://host.docker.internal:3306?u=root&p=password&d=d1" \
-e NC_AUTH_JWT_SECRET="569a1821-0a93-45e8-87ab-eb857f20a010" \

# for PostgreSQL
docker run -d --name nocodb-postgres \
-v "$(pwd)"/nocodb:/usr/app/data/ \

To persist data in docker you can mount volume at /usr/app/data/ since 0.10.6. Otherwise your data will be lost after recreating the container.

If you plan to input some special characters, you may need to change the character set and collation yourself when creating the database. Please check out the examples for MySQL Docker.

Different commands just indicate the database that NocoDB will use internally for metadata storage, but that doesn't influence the ability to connect to a different database type.

curl http://get.nocodb.com/macos-x64 -o nocodb -L && chmod +x nocodb && ./nocodb

Sync Schema

We allow you to sync schema changes if you have made changes outside NocoDB GUI. However, it has to be noted then you will have to bring your own schema migrations for moving from one environment to another. See Sync Schema for details.


We are keeping all the user operation logs in one place. See Audit for details.

Production Setup

By default, SQLite is used for storing metadata. However, you can specify your database. The connection parameters for this database can be specified in NC_DB environment variable. Moreover, we also provide the below environment variables for configuration.

Why are we building this?

Most internet businesses equip themselves with either spreadsheet or a database to solve their business needs. Spreadsheets are used by Billion+ humans collaboratively every single day. However, we are way off working at similar speeds on databases which are way more powerful tools when it comes to computing. Attempts to solve this with SaaS offerings have meant horrible access controls, vendor lock-in, data lock-in, abrupt price changes & most importantly a glass ceiling on what's possible in the future.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide the most powerful no-code interface for databases that is open source to every single internet business in the world. This would not only democratise access to a powerful computing tool but also bring forth a billion+ people who will have radical tinkering-and-building abilities on the internet.
