Research, testing, deploying of server for personal use.
I’ve setup a YunoHost server for my personal use. It’s on an extra computer I have running at home. I bought the arkadi.one domain name for it. I’m running the following services on it:
- Nextcloud » replaces Dropbox
- Can also manage my Android contacts & calendars through CalDAV
- Many other apps can give it more capabilities
- Pihole - Ad blocking on my home network
- Tiny Tiny RSS Reader - follow RSS Feeds
- WriteFreely - lite blogging
- Transmission - download Bittorrent files
- MiniDLNA - play movies on Roku
- Searx » replaces Google for search
Offering services on your server to family & friends.
- Email - Unfortunately can’t offer email because my ISP blocks port 25
- WriteFreely - Still not a 1.0 product. Cannot easily make accounts for people.
- Currently can offer: Nextcloud, Searx, and Tiny Tiny RSS Reader
- Future plans: would like to offer WriteFreely and email. Not sure what other services would be useful for my family. Maybe Friendica? PixelFed? Mastodon?
Teaching your family & friends to self-host.
- I also name drop Yunohost to my techie friends when they ask
(currently transitioning from 1-2 but need to nail down backup system & how to ‘sell’ it to my family)
