A CLI for managing game servers using Docker.

Project description


Build Status Python Versions pypi wilfred Language grade: Python Total alerts Downloads Code style: black

Wilfred is a command-line interface for running game servers locally. It uses Docker to run game servers in containers, which means they are completely separated. Wilfred can run any game that can run in Docker.

⚠️ Wilfred is currently under development and should not be considered stable. Features may break or may not be implemented yet. Use with caution.

Supported games

As long as your server can run in Docker, it can probably run using Wilfred (after some tinkering). These are the games supported by default. You can submit new games to wilfred-dev/images.

  • Minecraft
    • Vanilla Minecraft
    • BungeeCord
    • Paper
    • Waterfall
    • Bedrock
  • Voice Servers
    • Mumble


Please refer to the official documentation for further installation instructions and documentation.


Wilfred can be installed using pip. You need to use Python 3.6 or newer in order for Wilfred to work.

pip install wilfred --upgrade --user

A snap package is also in the works but currently not considered stable.

Once you got Wilfred installed, run wilfred setup in order to set a path for Wilfred to use to store server files.
