Lychee outdated - please update

  • Lychee is still at version 3.1.6 at the time of this writing. The current version is 3.2.8, see GitHub releases. Please note that Lychee has moved from electerious/Lychee to LycheeOrg/Lychee:


    Since the 1st of April 2018 this project has moved to it's own Organisation ( where people are able to submit their fixes to it. We, the Organisation owners, want to thank electerious (Tobias Reich) for the opportunity to make this project live on.

    I would love to see Lychee updated regularly, like the other apps on Cloudron...

    Thanks for the heads up @tobru I have update Lychee now to the latest upstream version.

  • Thank @nebulon for the fast response and the update.

    However, the update didn't went smooth. After the update all shares are lost and the settings button in Lychee leads into the error message "Server error or API not found". Looking at the browser console it tries to load /dist/user.css which is not available (404). Most probably this corresponds to the error found in the app log:

    And as well in the Lychee log (/plugins/Log/)

    As well /Lychee-front/images/password.svg is not found (404) because the Dockerfile downloads the packed Git repo and not the release Zip which contains all needed files.

    Would you mind to have a look at this errors? Thank you very much...

    @tobru Thanks for the report. I have revoked the latest version while we investigate.

  • Staff

    Apparently the user.css issue is due to a newly added feature to adjust the base stylesheet and thus the app crashes when the settings panel is opened. I cannot reproduce the sharing issue so far.

  • Staff

    Just to give an update on this. The app crash is gone by fixing the usage of user.css. I am also now able to reproduce the sharing issue. From what I can tell this happens for shared/public albums only and the reason seems to be, that upon update, the app thinks that no user was created yet and will prompt for user creation just like on first run. If the user submits this, the app gets reinitialized for that new user and thus loses some information like the album state. However the data is still all there. I haven't found a solution yet for this.

    Also I have put an upstream issue at

  • Staff

    We have pushed a fixed package version, thanks to the help of upstream developers.

  • It seems that the Lychee-Laravel version is more rich in features, possibly a candidate for next update?
