Self-Hosted Spotlight: Navidrome

Meet Navidrome, an open-source music streaming server for your self-hosted music collection. It comes with an intuitive interface for managing and streaming your audio files from a browser (screenshot below) and is compatible with all Subsonic clients for mobile streaming as well.

Navidrome boasts all the features you'd expect from a streaming server – multi-user support, large collections, existing metadata extraction, multi-platform, automatic library monitoring, web themes, and transcoding (per user/player, if needed)  – on top of being extremely resource-efficient and running well on lower-powered devices like the Raspberry Pi. The server can be installed via bare metal or Docker.
