Dear Community, 5 years ago, GrandNode was created on the basis of nopCommerce. We are therefore obligated to inherit their license. This license does not allow us to use 100% of the benefits offered by open-source, it inhibits the development of our application. We are working on a completely new platform that will allow you to use 100% of the potential of .NET Core 5.0 and MongoDB. In the next few days we will share an adress of new repository, where the develop version of the incoming project will be published. Stay tuned! Please note that bug fixing for the current version of GrandNode, will be supported until the end of 2022.

GrandNode requires .NET Core 3.1, MongoDB 4.0+, and OS-specific dependency tools.


GrandNode can be installed in a few different ways. Note: The develop branch is the development version of GrandNode and it may be unstable. To use the latest stable version, download it from the Releases page or switch to a release branch.

  • Docker

    docker run -d -p --name mongodb mongo 
    docker run -d -p 80:80 --name grandnode --link mongodb:mongo grandnode/develop

mkdir ~/source
cd ~/source
git clone - b x.xx https://github.com/grandnode/grandnode.git
cd ~/source/grandnode
dotnet restore GrandNode.sln
