Beehive is an event and agent system, which allows you to create your own agents that perform automated tasks triggered by events and filters. It is modular, flexible and really easy to extend for anyone. It has modules (we call them Hives), so it can interface with, talk to, or retrieve information from Twitter, Tumblr, Email, IRC, Jabber, RSS, Jenkins, Hue - to name just a few. Check out the full list of available Hives in our Wiki.

Connecting those modules with each other lets you create immensely useful agents.


For this guide you should be familiar with the basic concepts of


Beehive is released under the AGPL-3.0 License.


Install Beehive:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ mkdir beehive
[isabell@stardust ~]$ cd beehive
[isabell@stardust beehive]$ wget
[isabell@stardust beehive]$ tar -xzvf beehive_0.4.0_Linux_x86_64.tar.gz
[isabell@stardust beehive]$ rm beehive_0.4.0_Linux_x86_64.tar.gz


Beehive will generate default config on startup

Supervisord Daemon Setup

Create ~/etc/services.d/beehive.ini with the following content:


After creating the configuration, tell supervisord to refresh its configuration and start the service:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ supervisorctl reread
SERVICE: available
[isabell@stardust ~]$ supervisorctl update
SERVICE: added process group
[isabell@stardust ~]$ supervisorctl status
SERVICE                            RUNNING   pid 26020, uptime 0:03:14
[isabell@stardust ~]$

Finishing installation


Since beehive does not support any kind of authentication, you need to access it through an SSH tunnel using SSH port forwarding.

To finish the installation, go to http://localhost:8181.


Update by downloading new binary for x86 64 from and restarting the service with supervisorctl restart beehive.

Tested on Uberspace U7 with Go v1.15.7, Beehive Version 0.4.0
