So I got myself a VPS and am hosting both my capsule and website on there but still have a LOT of free space, what are some essential services/apps I should be running on it? #askfedi
@rob Just about anything, I'm being vague and open because I might get suggestions for things I never even knew were a thing and I love that about fedi
- vaultwarden (bitwarden compatible server written in rust)
- prosody or ejabberd for xmpp (email like distributed instant messaging), and for the super easy setup snikket
- syncthing ( decentralized peer to peer file sync)
- email ( but might need a bigger or dedicatd VPS for the easiest deployment as its docker, mailu, or one that wants the whole machine to itself - mail in a box)
- gitea ( selfhosted code repositories )
- gonic (airsonic api compatible music streaming server)
- photoprism or lychee (photo sharing like Google photos)
- powerdns ( run your own authoritative DNS server, or resolver)
- adguard home (pi hole but a bit better)
- calibre web (web based version or calibre, the desktop ebook management software. I use synching to sync my local database and books to my server so I have it on the web as well)
- authelia (authentication layer to put in front of services you want extra security, supports 2fa. Good for your media library etc)
What kind of things are you into? I might be able to suggest more interesting things.
Like federated blogging with writefreely.
Or your own invoice and payment management suite with invoice ninja.
@rob Wow that's some quality suggestions, thanks! I do already self-host gitea but will absolutely look into most of these.
As for what I'm into I'd say mostly decentralized, foss alternatives to "bigtech" and any mainstream tech and services
Photoprism I think is the nicer software but the best part does use tensorflow. You can disable it but then might as well use lychee.
If you don't want to host your own mail yet but want to host your own contacts and calendar, radicale is super nice. Nothing fancy like a web interface, so you use whatever client for that. Like Thunderbird, Android apps etc
