  • Nextcloud

    โ˜๏ธ Nextcloud server, a safe home for all your data

    Nextcloud - I honestly don't know why I run nextcloud. I currently use it to automatically backup phone photos, and share a small subset of the files I sync with seafile (nextcloud file sync *sucks* compared to seafile, but the sharing UI is a little better), but it's mediocre at that, kind of like it's mediocre at everything else. Why do so many of y'all host it? Is there anything it does well that I'm missing?

  • Home Assistant

    :house_with_garden: Open source home automation that puts local control and privacy first.

    I have a ton running in my environment, but I will pair the list down to just a few that are critical for my daily life... - Home Assistant: Like most here, this is probably my most-used Self-Hosted service! I have two instances running, one at home & one for my Vacation Home. - Plex: I run a massive (40+TB) media server at home, and I have been running Plex to support that for the past 7 years. Before Plex, I had a somewhat large Windows Media Server setup... and when I cut the cord and moved to Plex... I have never looked back! (Do use all of the *arr's as well to feed the beast!) - Heimdall Dashboard: I have tried Organizr V2, and others... but I keep coming back to Heimdall. I really hate this saying, but "It Just Works!!!" - Grafana: I enjoy looking at historical data about my environment... and Grafana seems to make the prettiest dashboards! To be fair, I use Grafana at work as well... so I could be a little based. :P - MinIO: I see this one getting often overlooked... but if you need some S3 style storage in your Self-Hosted life... this is it! I use several MinIO containers around my environment... for object storage of regular data, as well as backup data (using restic)

    Fork of overseerr for jellyfin support

    - jellyseerr : a media request management, a fork of overseerr for jellyfin. Friends are mostly using requestrr but I wanted a backup solution as it's not maintained anymore and it could break anytime. It's far from being perfect but it does the job (it's getting rate limited a lot by pihole because it always wants to synchronize with jellyfin, I reduced the cron jobs to reduce it a bit).

  • authelia

    The Single Sign-On Multi-Factor portal for web apps

    Some important services for me: 1. Wireguard: I have bypass rules in Authelia since Iโ€™m too lazy to login to my services. Wireguard also provides adblock on-the-go. 2. Samba server: use to transfer files between iPhone/iPad/laptop. Didnโ€™t expect Iโ€™m depending on it too much. 3. Webtop: aka my lite/fake VM. I mounted my data directory to this container, mostly use it when i need GUI to move/edit files on my server. Accessible through web browser or RDP protocol. 4. Diversion: adblock on Asus router.

    A self-hosted open source photo management service. This is the repository of the backend.

    LibrePhotos - Man, I *so* want a google photos replacement that gives me control over how my photos are organized. Photoprism and LibrePhotos are both almost there.
