Ntfy is a platform for sending push notifications to your desktop or phone by simply using a PUT/POST HTTP request. In other words, it’s pub-sub. Clients publish to a topic and subscribers to the topic will be notified when something new is published. Simple and effective way to get your own push notifications. I’ve previously written how I use Ntfy with Tasker.
Vaultwarden is an implementation of the Bitwarden API in Rust. It’s fast, lightweight, secure, and compatible with the official Bitwarden clients. It’s perfect for self-hosting a password manager for your family and a few friends. I’ve run it for over two years and it is rock solid. I support Bitwarden as well by buying a personal subscription and recommend it to my clients for their enterprise password management needs.
Dashy is a highly customizable dashboard app which makes a great homepage for accessing all of your personal applications. Out of the box, it doesn’t provide any authentication or authorization so anyone with access will see the dashboard. I am using Authelia to protect it.
Back in April, I wrote a summary post about the project I had been working on to migrate to a new k3s cluster from the original Rancher Kubernetes cluster that I created in 2020. My intention was to continue that series and detail each part of that project. Unfortunately, I ran into some technical problems which meant that not only did the cluster get shutdown, but I didn’t have time to even look at it.
Since beginning this project, I have been slowly building up my (private) Ansible repository on Github. This repository is pulled into AWX where there are a series of jobs that run daily. The idea behind those daily jobs is to automate configuration and administration tasks such as installing the latest software and OS updates. I have also extended this capability to enhance my Kubernetes knowledge from building my workloads using the Rancher web interface to building manifest templates and deploying them using Ansible.
