Version: 6.x


Gotenberg is shipped within a Docker image.

Gotenberg should ONLY be used in a trusted network by trusted applications. Do NOT expose Gotenberg to the external world.

You may start it with:

docker run --rm -p 3000:3000 thecodingmachine/gotenberg:6

The API will be available at http://localhost:3000.

The image uses a dedicated non-root user called gotenberg with uid and gid 1001.

If you wish to change those uid and gid, you will have to:

  • clone the project
  • re-build the image
  • publish the image in your own Docker repository

For instance:

git clone
make publish GOTENBERG_USER_GID=your_custom_gid GOTENBERG_USER_UID=your_custom_uid DOCKER_REGISTRY=your_registry DOCKER_USER=registry_user DOCKER_PASSWORD=registry_password VERSION=version

main branch is always up-to-date with the latest version of the API.

Docker Compose

You may also add it in your Docker Compose stack:

version: "3"

# your other services

image: thecodingmachine/gotenberg:6

The API will be available under gotenberg:3000 in your Docker Compose network.


It may also be deployed with Kubernetes.

Make sure to provide enough memory and CPU requests (for instance 512Mi and 0.2 CPU).


The more resources are granted, the quicker will be the conversions.

In the deployment specification of the pod, also specify the uid of the user gotenberg:

privileged: false
runAsUser: 1001

Cloud Run (Google Cloud)

If you're looking for cost savings, you might be interested by Cloud Run. However, according to some users, doing asynchronous conversion (with a webhook) might not working.

In the following examples, we will assume your Gotenberg API is available at http://localhost:3000.
