The self-hosted firearm tracker website.

  • Easy to Use: Cannery lets you easily keep an eye on your ammo levels before and after range day
  • Secure: Self-host your own instance, or use an instance from someone you trust. Your data stays with you, period
  • Simple: Access from any internet-capable device


  • Create containers to store your ammunition, and tag them with custom tags
  • Add ammunition types to Cannery, and then ammunition groups to your containers
  • Stage groups of ammo for range day and record your ammo usage
  • Invitations via invite tokens or public registration


  1. Install Docker Compose or alternatively Docker Desktop on your machine.
  2. Copy the example docker-compose.yml. into your local machine where you want. Bind mounts are created in the same directory by default.
  3. Set the configuration variables in docker-compose.yml. You'll need to run docker run -it shibaobun/cannery /app/priv/ to generate a new secret key base.
  4. Use docker-compose up or docker-compose up -d to start the container!

The first created user will be created as an admin.

Reverse proxy

Finally, reverse proxy to port 4000 of the container. If you're using a reverse proxy in another docker container, you can reverse proxy to http://cannery:4000. Otherwise, you'll need to modify the docker-compose.yml to bind the port to your local machine.

For instance, instead of

  - "4000"


  - ""

and reverse proxy to http://localhost:4000.


You can use the following environment variables to configure Cannery in docker-compose.yml.

  • HOST: External url to generate links with. Must be set with your hosted domain name! I.e. cannery.mywebsite.tld
  • PORT: Internal port to bind to. Defaults to 4000. Must be reverse proxied!
  • DATABASE_URL: Controls the database url to connect to. Defaults to ecto://postgres:postgres@cannery-db/cannery.
  • ECTO_IPV6: If set to true, Ecto should use ipv6 to connect to PostgreSQL. Defaults to false.
  • POOL_SIZE: Controls the pool size to use with PostgreSQL. Defaults to 10.
  • SECRET_KEY_BASE: Secret key base used to sign cookies. Must be generated with docker run -it shibaobun/cannery mix phx.gen.secret and set for server to start.
  • REGISTRATION: Controls if user sign-up should be invite only or set to public. Set to public to enable public registration. Defaults to invite.
  • LOCALE: Sets a custom default locale. Defaults to en_US
    • Available options: en_US, de, and fr
  • SMTP_HOST: The url for your SMTP email provider. Must be set
  • SMTP_PORT: The port for your SMTP relay. Defaults to 587.
  • SMTP_USERNAME: The username for your SMTP relay. Must be set!
  • SMTP_PASSWORD: The password for your SMTP relay. Must be set!
  • SMTP_SSL: Set to true to enable SSL for emails. Defaults to false.
  • EMAIL_FROM: Sets the sender email in sent emails. Defaults to no-reply@HOST where HOST was previously defined.
  • EMAIL_NAME: Sets the sender name in sent emails. Defaults to "Cannery".
