Onion Routed Cloud(ORC):Anonymous Cloud Storage Network

Written by Mubassir patel

The  Onion Routed Cloud. ORC is a distributed anonymous cloud storage network owned and operated by all of us. Join the discussion in #orc on our community chat!

Build Status | Test Coverage | Node Package | Docker Hub | License (AGPL-3.0)

Desktop Installation (Recommended)

Simply download a pre-built package for your platform from the releases page!

Note! ORC uses the system Tor package on GNU/Linux, so you must install it yourself using your distribution’s package manager.

Server Installation (Advanced)

Pull the image from Docker Hub.

docker pull orcproject/orc

Create a data directory on the host.

mkdir ~/.config/orc

Run the ORC container and mount the data directory.

docker run -v ~/.config/orc:/root/.config/orc -t orcproject/orc:latest

Modify the created configuration at ~/.config/orc/config as desired (see the {@tutorial config}) and restart the container for the changes to take effect. Be sure to expose BridgePort and map it to the host if you want to use the API.

docker run \
  --publish \
  --volume ~/.config/orc:/root/.config/orc \
  --tty orcproject/orc:latest

See the docker run documentation for more information. If you prefer to install ORC manually, see the guide for {@tutorial install}. Once installed, simply run orc with an optional configuration file using the --config <path/to/config> option.

Once the container has started, you can navigate in your browser to to access your node’s dashboard!

If you did not disable BridgeAuthenticationEnabled, you will be asked to supply the credentials in your configuration file.

Automatic Security Updates

When running the ORC server installation with Docker, you can configure your node to periodically check for updates and automatically download the latest image and restart your node to make sure you are always running the latest stable release. Since you already have Docker installed, pull the image for Watchtower and run it.

docker pull v2tec/watchtower
docker run -d --name watchtower -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock v2tec/watchtower

Now, Watchtower will check for the latest stable images for running containers and automatically update them.


To hack on the ORC project, clone this repository and use Docker Compose:

git clone
cd orc
docker-compose up

This will volume mount the the appropriate directories for development, and then boots up the ORC container. Note that stable releases are tagged and the master branch may contain unstable or bleeding-edge code.

Alternatively, you can run directly on your host. Use npm install and npm link to install dependencies. Start the daemon with orcd or the desktop application with orc.

Happy hacking!
