  • yunohost

    YunoHost is an operating system aiming to simplify as much as possible the administration of a server. This repository corresponds to the core code, written mostly in Python and Bash.

  • On the other end of the spectrum you have communists running Data Centers out of their basement. $

    *I suggest Linode.* Super reliable provider, much less price than the big names. I would expect the same service out of DigitalOcean, Vultr... just pick the company where you like the owners honestly. Linode's the one me teacher used tho.

    Assuming you got the income, $40/mo for 8GB should be good enough to run a ton of hobby projects. Or maybe $20 for 4GB to start, I think Linode lets you upgrade droplets.

    Avoid AWS. Using AWS for a hobby project is retarded. Its meant for enterprise.

    Option B would be to use a RaspberryPi. Its extra work for less performance, but Pis are a lot of fun. Its like owning a toy that can run NextCloud.

    If you're getting into self-hosting btw check out https://yunohost.org/ and https://landchad.net/

  • syncthing-android

    Wrapper of syncthing for Android.

  • I've installed Syncthing (https://syncthing.net/) on my phone(s) and it syncs selected folders directly to my Synology NAS at home. As Syncthing uses its own discovery system, there is no need to open anything up to the internet.

  • umbrel-apps

    The official app repository of the Umbrel App Store. Submit apps and updates here. Learn how → https://github.com/getumbrel/umbrel-apps#readme

  • Get a Raspberry Pi 4 and install https://umbrel.com on it. Easy to set up using Tailscale and optional TOR support if that's something you want. And it has all the "important" stuff like Nextcloud, Vaultwarden, Pi-hole, Matrix server, etc.

    There's a bunch of Bitcoin related Apps as well but it's easy to just ignore those.

    Full list of "apps" here: https://github.com/getumbrel/umbrel-apps

  • meli

    Platform for deploying static sites and frontend applications easily. Automatic SSL, deploy previews, reverse proxy, and more.

  • immich

    High performance self-hosted photo and video management solution.

  • For backing up photos I highly recommend immich. It is a self hosted google photos replacement under active developement.

  • Mailu

    Insular email distribution - mail server as Docker images

  • As ever with these discussions, I host my own email on a Hetzner VM with https://mailu.io/ and there was no special setup or precaution required to ensure delivery both ways.

    Still - if you self-host just assume at some point it will go down and you may have to deal with a backup restore before you can receive any more email. If that gets in the way of your life, you may want to reconsider :)

NOTE: The number of mentions on this list indicates mentions on common posts plus user suggested alternatives. Hence, a higher number means a more popular project.
