Key Features

Overleaf is an open-source online real-time collaborative LaTeX editor. We run a hosted version at www.overleaf.com, but you can also run your own local version, and contribute to the development of Overleaf.

If you want help installing and maintaining Overleaf in your lab or workplace, we offer an officially supported version called Overleaf Server Pro. It also comes with extra security and admin features. Click here to find out more!

Installation

We have detailed installation instructions in our wiki:

Upgrading

If you are upgrading from a previous version of Overleaf, please see the Release Notes section on the Wiki for all of the versions between your current version and the version you are upgrading to.

Overleaf Docker Image

This repo contains two dockerfiles,

Dockerfile-base
, which builds the
sharelatex/sharelatex-base
image, and
Dockerfile
which builds the
sharelatex/sharelatex
(or "community") image.

The Base image generally contains the basic dependencies like

wget
and
aspell
, plus
texlive
. We split this out because it's a pretty heavy set of dependencies, and it's nice to not have to rebuild all of that every time.

The

sharelatex/sharelatex
image extends the base image and adds the actual Overleaf code and services.

Use

make build-base
and
make build-community
from
server-ce/
to build these images.

We use the Phusion base-image (which is extended by our

base
image) to provide us with a VM-like container in which to run the Overleaf services. Baseimage uses the
runit
service manager to manage services, and we add our init-scripts from the
server-ce/runit
folder.
