Industry Activity

It's Time to Update Your Awesome-Selfhosted Bookmarks

The team behind the Awesome-Selfhosted list of self-hosted software on GitHub released the first version of awesome-selfhosted.net this week, a web version of the list that allows users to browse by category and filter by tags. And while there's still a ton of potential for better filtering capabilities, the site is a much better solution than the master list traditionally found on GitHub. Additional details and the official announcement can be found in the repository's release notes.

Note: If awesome-selfhosted.net doesn't scratch your self-hosting itch, check out the oddly timed yet viable community-developed alternative Awwesome also released this week.

Backing Up Linux ISOs Just Got More Expensive

This week, the popular cloud storage and backup provider Backblaze announced they're increasing monthly B2 storage pricing from $5/TB to $6/TB. In a blog post announcing the increase, the company cites the necessity of such an increase to continue providing best-in-class offerings after not having previously implemented a price change in the service's seven years of existence. Despite the increase, Backblaze's pricing remains competitive when compared to alternatives like Amazon Web Services and Google Workspace.

Self-Hosted Spotlight: Dozzle

Meet Dozzle, a lightweight, web-based Docker log viewer that provides real-time monitoring and easy troubleshooting. In short, Dozzle is a web frontend that allows users to easily view live logs for each of their Docker containers. It also provides search functionality (including RegEx), live CPU/memory stats, and log downloads all while maintaining a relatively small footprint on system resources.

The project's installation guide provides examples for getting Dozzle up-and-running with Docker run or docker-compose.
