Castopod makes it easy to publish podcasts and maintain a webpage for your podcast as well. With social features, commenting and fediverse integration, you can share audio with your audience with ease.
Building your own podcast? If you want to build it with F/OSS software, look no further than Castopod (code)!
Castopod comes with a full fledged set of documentation. Wondering how Castopod differs from solutions like Wordpress and other software? They've got a section for that.
Castopod is built on modern PHP (8.1 is required), using CodeIgniter4, with advanced support for Federation. The codebase is actively worked on and sees active development – hitting the v1.0 milestone in October.
Castopod does require quite a few services to get going, so th easiest way to start is with
version: "3.7" services: app: image: castopod/app:latest container_name: "castopod-app" volumes: - castopod-media:/opt/castopod/public/media environment: MYSQL_DATABASE: castopod MYSQL_USER: castopod MYSQL_PASSWORD: changeme CP_BASEURL: "http://castopod.example.com" CP_ANALYTICS_SALT: changeme CP_CACHE_HANDLER: redis CP_REDIS_HOST: redis networks: - castopod-app - castopod-db restart: unless-stopped web-server: image: castopod/web-server:latest container_name: "castopod-web-server" volumes: - castopod-media:/var/www/html/media networks: - castopod-app ports: - 8080:80 restart: unless-stopped mariadb: image: mariadb:10.5 container_name: "castopod-mariadb" networks: - castopod-db volumes: - castopod-db:/var/lib/mysql environment: MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD: changeme MYSQL_DATABASE: castopod MYSQL_USER: castopod MYSQL_PASSWORD: changeme restart: unless-stopped redis: image: redis:7.0-alpine container_name: "castopod-redis" volumes: - castopod-cache:/data networks: - castopod-app # this container is optional # add this if you want to use the videoclips feature video-clipper: image: castopod/video-clipper:latest container_name: "castopod-video-clipper" volumes: - castopod-media:/opt/castopod/public/media environment: MYSQL_DATABASE: castopod MYSQL_USER: castopod MYSQL_PASSWORD: changeme networks: - castopod-db restart: unless-stopped volumes: castopod-media: castopod-db: castopod-cache: networks: castopod-app: castopod-db:
Quite the handful! But given Castopod's feaureset, it's hard to get away with a smaller set of supporting services.
