  • mac-dev-playbook

    Mac setup and configuration via Ansible.

    Project mention: Automate Mac setup? | | 2022-04-10
  • Cloudbox

    Ansible-based solution for rapidly deploying a Docker containerized cloud media server.

    Project mention: iDrive Photos Unlimited ($9.99/year) is unbelievably slow, despite their bold claims of being the "World's fastest photo storage and backup" and "Backup faster than Google Photos". I think I've uploaded just around 11GB in the past 24 hours. If it's too good to be true, it really is. | | 2022-04-29

    I started with Cloudbox (, but now I recommend starting with "Saltbox" if you want to get into it. There is a discord for both projects.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • Ansible-NAS

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

    Project mention: Is there a more up-to-date guide than this? | | 2022-04-16

    Not an up to date article, but if you're interested in an alternative which also has portainer for some management, I've used in the past with great results. It's managed with ansible, but all docker containers.

    Project mention: Simplest Way To Mount Google Drive For Plex | | 2021-12-23

    Project mention: hardening a RHEL8 VM using OpenSCAP and DISA STIG | | 2022-02-16
  • raspberry-pi-dramble

    Raspberry Pi Kubernetes cluster that runs HA/HP Drupal 8

    Project mention: Heatsinks for Raspberry Pi cluster with PoE | | 2022-04-07

    Don't bother. Just put them on an open stack and blow a quiet Noctua fan sideways through the stack. I used to have a four-pi4 cluster ala and one fan blowing back to front was easily good enough. I also removed the fans from the official PoE HATs since they sounded like rocket engines no matter what I did.

  • ansible-interactive-tutorial

    Interactive Ansible tutorials with dead simple setup via Docker

    Project mention: Curious about Ansible but afraid or blocked on getting started? | | 2022-02-28

    Project mention: My growing homelab, CS student in Germany | | 2022-03-21

    Project mention: Can bash be good as docker compose alternative? Does anybody use it or some better alternatives? | | 2021-12-01

    Sure. Here are examples from the Ansible God himself Jeff Geerling He Worte Books about Ansible.

  • home-ops

    A mono repository for my home infrastructure and Kubernetes cluster which adheres to Infrastructure as Code (IaC) and GitOps practices where possible

    Project mention: Deploy your app on K8s the GitOps way using Argo CD and the image updater | | 2022-05-17

    I believe the best tool for this job currently is Renovate. It works with a bunch of different Git providers and allows PRs to be opened on container, helm chart or kustomize upgrades. It also tracks a bunch of other deps like terraform, ansible, pip, npm and so on. I'm using it in conjunction with Flux over at my home gitops repo.

    Collection of macOS automation tools for Ansible.

    Project mention: Switched from 1Password 7 — my take so far | | 2022-05-16

    Not for now. I already have wrote in a plain English few articles about this topic (1,2,3) with a more detailed explanation and practical examples (which you run). At least for now, there is nothing left, what I could share in that area. Probably, in the future I will try to find and tell something new about this topic :)
