  • Jellyfin

    The Free Software Media System

    Jellyfin - A real savior. Makes streaming your archived Linux ISOs a breeze. A few more months of testing/convincing my gf&family and I'm stopping my Netflix/HBO/Disney/Amazon subscriptions. Yes, for some reason we have all of these. *arr friends. Do the heavy lifting so you don't have to. I'm using radarr/sonarr/bazarr/prowlarr, but there seems to be an *arr for whatever you could imagine.

  • Gitea

    Git with a cup of tea! Painless self-hosted all-in-one software development service, including Git hosting, code review, team collaboration, package registry and CI/CD

    Gitea - Minimalistic git hosting/web UI with a touch of project/task management. Does just enough as a backup of my GitHub, private package registry and some smaller projects that I want version controlled but aren't good/important/universal enough for GH. Kinda worried about the Forgejo drama, but for now - Gitea isn't going anywhere and Forgejo doesn't convince me to migrate. GitLab (CE) - A shout out, just because we're using it at work. It's a memory and CPU hungry cow. It does everything you could possibly need in a small (and medium) software company. It does stuff you don't need. It does everything, and if it doesn't, EE probably does it.

  • AdGuardHome

    Network-wide ads & trackers blocking DNS server

    Adguard Home - Perhaps less helpful for blocking ads on youtube, but it's great for helping to keep some privacy by stopping my various IOT devices from reporting back some excessive usage info (roku....). I also use it as a DHCP server to 'box' some devices such that they only have access to local network and nothing on the outside (oculus quest)

  • threetwo

    A good comic book curation app.

    I've got a pretty small archive, so currently manually managing it. But I had bookmarked threetwo to look into later. It might just automate acquiring comics though, like Mylar3. (Although Mylar might also be able to manage comics, but I haven't dealt into it too much)

  • mylar3

    The python3 version of the automated Comic Book downloader (cbr/cbz) for use with various download clients.
