These are instructions for pacman based distributions, like ArchLinux. The package is available from the AUR or from GitHub.


  • systemd integration.
  • Provide configuration for Nginx.
  • Use socket activation.
  • Use a non-root user.
  • Apply migrations automatically.


  1. Clone the package, build and install with makepkg:

    git clone
    cd tandoor-recipes-git
    makepkg -si
    or use your favourite AUR helper.

  2. Setup a PostgreSQL database and user, as explained here:

  3. Configure the service in /etc/tandoor/tandoor.conf.

  4. Reinstall the package, or follow the official instructions to have tandoor creates its DB tables.

  5. Optionally configure a reverse proxy. A configuration for Nginx is provided, but you can Traefik, Apache, etc.. Edit /etc/nginx/sites-available/tandoor.conf. You may want to use another server_name, or configure TLS. Then:

    cd /etc/nginx/sites-enabled
    ln -s ../sites-available/tandoor.conf
    systemctl restart nginx

  6. Enable the service

    systemctl enable --now tandoor


cd tandoor-recipes-git
git pull
makepkg -sif
Or use your favourite AUR helper. You shouldn't need to do anything else. This package applies migration automatically. If PostgreSQL has been updated to a new major version, you may need to run pg_upgrade.
