GoToSocial can be installed in a number of different ways. We publish official binary releases as well as container images. A number of third-party packages are maintained by different distributions and some people have created additional deployment tooling to make it easy to deploy GoToSocial yourself.

Binary releases

We publish binary builds for Linux to our GitHub project:

  • 32-bit Intel/AMD (i386/x86)
  • 64-bit Intel/AMD (amd64/x86_64)
  • 32-bit ARM (v6 and v7)
  • 64-bit ARM64

For FreeBSD we publish:

  • 64-bit Intel/AMD (amd64/x86_64)


We also publish container images on the Docker Hub.

Containers are released for the same Linux platforms as our binary releases, with the exception of 32-bit Intel/AMD.


We publish snapshot binary builds and Docker images of whatever is currently on main.

We always recommend using a stable release instead, but if you want to live on the edge (at your own risk!) then see the snapshots section on our GitHub repo for more information.


Some folks have created distribution packages for GoToSocial or additional tooling to aid in installing GoToSocial.
