    Dear Publii developers,

    I am an Information Technology teacher in high school. I have discovered Publii and I use it for my classes blogs. I would like my students to use it to create a website. The problem is I am not allowed to install applications on my school’s computers. We can provide portable applications to our students who can execute them.

    Could you provide a portable version of Publii we can install on a USB stick or in the Documents folder?

    This could facilitate the use of Publii in education.

    Thank you for all the work done so far.

    Hi MdC,

    At this moment we have no free time to work on the portable implementation of Publii, as it can require bigger amount of work due potential issues with storing config etc.

    But if you are able to use a Documents folder, please try the following path – I have tested it on my Windows 10 and it seems to be working:

    1) Install Publii on your computer

    2) Go to /Users/YOUR_USERNAME/AppData/Local/Programs/ and find Publii folder

    3) Copy that folder to your pendrive

    4) Rename the folder on pendrive to PubliiApp (to avoid conflict with Publii folder which is created by the App under Documents)

    5) Copy PubliiApp folder from pendrive to the Documents directory on the destination computer

    6) Open copied PubliiApp folder and run Publii.exe – it should works and should create Publii folder under Documents where all sites data and config will be stored.

    Of course please double check if all necessary functionalities works as I have only made a short test to make sure if this way is possible 🙂

    Do you appreciate the support you've received today? If so, consider donating to the Publii team by clicking here; we'll be sure to use your donation to make Publii even better!


    Hi Tomasz Dziuda,

    Thank you very much for your message.

    I can totally understand that it is not possible to provide a portable version of Publii for now.

    I have tried the method you described and it seems to work.

    I really hope it will work on the school’s computers. If so, I will try it with my students.
