    Project mention: Looking for a pueue debian maintainer | /r/debian | 2023-06-07

    there is a command line manager for long running tasks called Pueue. It is released into Nix, Arch, Alpine, Void, etc, but not for Debian based distros. I know that releasing into Debian is a bit more challenging, but I just wanted to ask if anybody here might be interested in packaging it. Just as a disclaimer, I am not the author of this project, just a regular user.

  • vigil-local

    🕯 Vigil Local daemon. Used as a slave service to monitor hosts behind a firewall and report their status to Vigil.

    Project mention: OneUptime: Open Source alternative that you can self-host. | /r/minilab | 2023-05-10

    One thing I like using vigil is the vigil-local companion that pushes on-prem (private network) probes status to the vigil app running on an external cheap VPS. Vigil doesn’t historize anything, its purpose is only to give a status (and to push alerts), and it does it well.
