SOLVED Bitwarden - Self-hosted password manager

  • Staff
    Self-hosted password manager.

    Already has a beta Docker deploy:

  • tgxn @tgxn commented 4 months ago
    It appears this uses MSSQL and .NET for deployment which can be rather resource-intensive within cloudron. (I don't believe any other apps are using this approach to store data)
    .NET Core 2.x SDK
    SQL Server 2016 or 2017 (2017 for cross-platform)

    Owner Some people on a HN thread mentioned that despite being .net, it runs on linux and mysql.

    there is a bitwarden-ruby which has a much smaller footprint (should be easier to port) this is my fork of it, and linked is a commit where i have started the porting work. bitwarden-ruby is running on the cloudron docker image.

    There is now an API compatible rewrite available, which does not depend on MS SQL server:

    Hi @nebulon ,

    the Dockerfile in the git repo of bitwarden_rs makes use of multi stage building. is that already supported in cloudron build? If so then is should be trivial to adapt the last stage of the build process.

    Edit: to answer myself. Cloudron currently does not seem to support multi stage docker builds.

  • Has anyone made progress on this app?

  • I would love to see this app on Cloudron. It would immediately become my new password manager.

  • Bitwarden now has live-sync

    Live sync will instantly push changes from one Bitwarden app to all others that you may be using within a matter of seconds.

    Hi @nebulon ,

    I made a few tests today since I remembered that there is a dockerImage value in CloudronManifest.json, but I am not quite sure how to use it.

    My current experiment is at It uses a new Dockerfile that uses the multi stage Dockerfile as a base and uses a Cloudron Base Image for the last stage. But it seems he does not take my dockerImage. The only way he pulls in my image is by calling cloudron install --image fbartels/bitwarden-cloudron from the commandline.

    For everyone else reading this. This is up until now only a build, the app is still missing all integration pieces and won't work withing Cloudron (yet).

  • They just published their security audit ( which seems like as good a reason as any to bump this request back up.

  • Any news?
    Or simmiliar app in development?

  • @fbartels How is the project going?

  • App Dev

    @spectrely no, I had no further time to really look into this so far. Busy with other projects.

    @spectrely with cloudron now on 18.04 do multi stage builds now work? You can try this with a cloudron build in the git clone'ed directory.

  • @fbartels Thanks for the quick reply. I'll play around and report back.

    Did you try that out?

    LDAP support is a Work in Progress right now.

    The plan is not to have it leverage LDAP for auth, but to auto invite users from LDAP so that new user registration doesn't have to be enabled.

    To answer my own question: no Cloudron still does not support multi stage builds:

    While a standalone ``docker build .` succeeds doing it via ´cloudron build´ fails.

    @iamthefij said in Bitwarden - Self-hosted password manager:

    LDAP support is a Work in Progress right now.

    I would say even the recently introduced admin panel is already a good step. This could be secured via http basic auth and only allowed for admins in Cloudron. The last point in the ldap sync topic was afair that this will be implemented as a standalone tool (which then will give the challenge on how to integrate both parts in the same image).

  • App Dev

    @fbartels The tool will likely be written as a static binary which can be downloaded and installed within the same container. Then it can be executed by Cloudron using the scheduler. Roughly the same way other periodic tasks are executed.

  • Is there chance Bitwarden is going to be included in cloudron soon ?
    I would like to start using it.

  • App Dev

    Docker has recently been updated on the cloudron buildserver, which means multi stage builds and COPY --from now works within Dockerfiles.

    I have a longer train ride on friday, maybe I can now make something happen with Bitwarden_rs.

  • App Dev

    basic prototype now lives in

    cannot build it at the moment, though. since its stuck at

    $ cloudron build
