TLDraw is a tiny little drawing app.


  • Very clean and nice UX
  • Snappy and very low memory footprint on the server
  • PWA ready
  • Multiplayer mode (iFrame compatible)

Shipped version: 1.24.5~ynh2

Demo: https://tldraw.com


Disclaimers / important information

  • TLDraw can’t be installed on a subpath, and needs a fully dedicated domain

  • The multiplayer mode requires Liveblocks API keys (Public and Secret)

    • You can get some for free at liveblocks.io
    • Be very careful though, and keep in mind that by doing so, all your multiplayer rooms data will be stored on livestocks.io SaaS servers, and NOT on your server
    • Multiplayer mode is completely optional and you don’t have to use it
    • If API keys are not provided, it will be automatically deactivated
  • TLDraw will not take a lot of disk or memory space while running.

    • However, you will need at least 2.5GB of RAM and 5GB of disk space during installation time
    • The build can be quite long, be patient!
  • TLDraw offers all functionnalities (including multiplayer) for free at tldraw.com

    • However, they have restricted the use of multiplayer mode within an iFrame, which could be a problem
    • TLDraw YunoHost app is patching that restriction so that you can use multiplayer mode within an iFrame as before
  • It could be possible to self-host a multiplayer layer in the future. Some projects have been launched, based on YJS library, such as GitHub - nimeshnayaju/yjs-tldraw: Yjs multiplayer implementation on tldraw, but sadly none of them is mature enough to be included here.

    • Obviously, as soon as multiplayer could be enabled without going through Liveblocks SaaS servers, the app will be updated accordingly
