Looking for light weight ways I could be notified when I need to update my services to fix failures or critical security issues (particularly for Matrix)

    🐳 Matrix (An open network for secure, decentralized communication) server setup using Ansible and Docker

    For example, one of the services I run is a Matrix node, and with it the signal-matrix bridge, since I prefer using Signal through a Matrix client. I install and maintain it using matrix-docker-ansible-deploy. However, the signal-matrix bridge recently silently broke -- I wasn't receiving any messages, and it took me a little while to figure this out.

  • whats-up-docker

    What's up Docker ( aka WUD ) gets you notified when a new version of your Docker Container is available.

    I haven't tried it yet but this project aims to make updating docker containers a lot easier instead of just blindly trusting pull cronjobs or watchtower to work, apparently depending on the registry it can differentiate between minor/major updates and handle them differently: https://github.com/fmartinou/whats-up-docker

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.
