Open source Zapier ⚡️

Just wanted to share a project I just discovered and which look promising. I am doing it, hoping that some will be interested to use and collaborate. This is an open source zapier.



How’s it compare? I’ll look myself when I get the opportunity, but I’d also be curious about firsthand reports from experience.

And does it require hosting somewhere? Or is it self hosting in some way?

It looks really early, missing lot of integration but this is a good middle solution between Nodered and zapier.

As far I know you will have to host it. I host it on my NAS using their docker image. BUT according to this page:, they plan to do an hosted version.

Hi, I am the creator of n8n. Saw this forum as a referral so had a look.

Yes, what @clempat wrote is 100% right. Currently, it has to be self-hosted but I hope to get the hosted version up and running asap. Happy to answer any questions.


As Docker is on Mac and Pi (and now on z/OS) that sounds like an easy prerequisite to meet.

(I probably should port this container to z/OS and Linux on Z; That would shock a lot of people.) :slight_smile:

Is the source freely available?

Very sorry, somehow did not get a notification about the new posts here. Now just saw it because I checked myself.
