    Recently i started using bspwm. I've had dmenu for my super + space shortcut, but i have installed this polybar themes, and they have this cool rofi app menu. I wanted to have this on super + space, but in sxhkd putting a line rofi -no-config -no-lazy-grab -show drun -modi drun -theme ~/.config/polybar/shapes/scripts/rofi/launcher.rasi (which is in file which is launched when app menu module on polybar is clicked) doesn't work.

  • GitHub repo Ansible-NAS

    Build a full-featured home server or NAS replacement with an Ubuntu box and this playbook. (by davestephens)

    Project mention: Need advice on choosing OS/base for NAS/home server | | 2021-04-02

    First I will point you toward this project: Which uses ansible to define and manage your docker containers. There's initially no GUI (this is actually a good thing!) but you could probably install Ubuntu with a GUI if you need it before setting up your drives or whatever. After you have configured everything to your liking you can end up with a webui for docker (portainer) and a dashboard linking to the webui for all of your services (radarr, traefik, etc.)

    Project mention: Solutions for working on multiple PC's and backup of important docs | | 2020-12-31

    From what you have described, you need a file synchronization solution. As mentioned, Office 365 subscription, OneDrive, Dropbox, and other cloud-based file-sharing tools can do the job for you. If you are interested in a self-hosted solution, consider spinning a Nextcloud VM or docker on top of your PC, hosting your private cloud, and synchronizing data between devices.
