Wallabag is a self hosted service that allows you to save articles or pages to read them later. this is very helpful for developers when we scramble upon an important resource that we don't have time to read at that moment.
In this post, we will be setting up Wallabag on our own machine.

We will start by creating our empty
Now we need to describe our service in the file, we can put the following content:
This file will create the server with persisted volumes for the database (SQLite) and images in the working directory and it will be exposing the

Start and Verification
docker-compose.yml file is set up, we can start our server:
docker-compose up -d
This will create the persistence
images folders and create a Wallabag server instance in detach mode.
We can verify that our instance is working by checking its status using the following command:
docker ps -a | grep wallabag
If there are no errors in the logs we can go to our browser and get into it at
Default credentials are, username
wallabag and password
Like this, we have set up and verified our self-hosted Pocket alternative server using Docker Compose.
Keep in mind that there is an Android app here that we can use.
As always, I hope you learned something.
