Pydio Cells is the nextgen file sharing platform for organizations. It is a full rewrite of the Pydio project using the Go language following a micro-service architecture.

Getting Started

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. See the Deployment section below for notes on how to deploy the project on a live system.


The following elements are required to compile and run pydio on your machine

  • Go language v1.10 or higher (tested with 1.10.x, 1.11.x, 1.12.x), with a correctly configured Go toolchain,
  • MySQL database 5.6 or higher (or MariaDB equivalent). The new mysql 8 authentication method is supported starting at Cells 1.4.1.

Note: We have developped and tested Pydio Cells on MacOS, Ubuntu, Debian and CentOS. Windows version might still have unknown glitches and is not yet supported.


Assuming that your system meets the above prerequisites, building the Pydio Cells backend from the source code is quite straight forward:

# Retrieve the code
go get -u
# From this line on, we assume you are in Pydio Cells' code roots directory
cd $GOPATH/src/
# Build your binary
make dev

To have the environment running, you must also:

  • Create a database in your chosen DB server,
  • Run the Pydio Cells installer that will guide you through the necessary steps: you might refer to the official documentation for additional information.
./cells install

Note on the third party libraries

We still currently manage third party dependencies via the vendor mechanism: shortly said, we pick up and maintain specific versions of the sources for each dependency we use by copying them in the vendor/ subfolder. The binary is built using these codes.

When you clone the repository, you then also have an embedded local copy of all the sources for you to investigate. Yet, you should not try to directly modify code that have been vendored.

Please also not that we had to fork a few libraries before integrating them as dependencies, most important being dex and minio. If you need to modify this part of the code, please get in touch with us.

Running the tests

To run the tests, simply do

go test -v ./...

Please read the document if you wish to add more tests or contribute to the code.


Binaries are currently provided for Linux and MacOSX distributions. To deploy them on a live system, please see the Installation Guide instructions.

Built With

Pydio Cells uses many open source golang libraries. Most important ones are listed below, please see DEPENDENCIES for an exhaustive list of other libs and their licenses.

  • Micro - Micro-service framework
  • Minio - Objects server implementing s3 protocol


Please read for details on our code of conduct, and the process for submitting pull requests to us. You ca find a comprehensive Developer Guide on our web site. Our online docs are open source as well, feel free to improve them by contributing!


We use SemVer for versioning. For the versions available, see the tags on this repository.


See the list of contributors who participated in this project. Pydio Cells is also a continuation of the Pydio project and many contributions were ported from pydio-core to the code that can be found under frontend/front-srv/assets.
