Running Vikunja in a subdirectory #

Running Vikunja in a subdirectory is not supported out of the box. However, you can still run it in a subdirectory but need to build the frontend yourself.

Frontend #

First, make sure you’re able to build the frontend from source. Check the guide about building from source about that.

Then, run

pnpm vite build --base=/SUBPATH
pnpm workbox copyLibraries dist/

Where SUBPATH is the subdirectory you want to run Vikunja on.

Once you have the build files you can deploy them as usual. Note that when deploying in docker you’ll need to put the files in a web container yourself, you can’t use the Dockerfile in the repo without modifications.


If you’re not using a reverse proxy you’re good to go. Simply configure the api url in the frontend as you normally would.

If you’re using a reverse proxy you’ll need to adjust the paths so that the api is available at /SUBPATH/api/v1. You can check if everything is working correctly by opening /SUBPATH/api/v1/info in a browser.
