Beta Software Warning

This software has not reached version 1.0 and should therefore be considered unstable. While any tagged version should work well on its own, a nice friendly upgrade path from one version to another is not guaranteed.

If you like getting your hands dirty in early versions of software, this is for you. If you prefer to wait till things are stable and friendly, maybe hold off for a while.

Also, if you trash your server or wreck your data, that's on you. Test your backups. Trust nothing.



A set of Ansible scripts to configure a Docker based Homelab server with all sorts of goodies. Following the unix philosophy we gather together many specific tools to build the exact end result desired.


To make it easy for anyone to own all their data in an easy and secure way, without the need of cloud providers.

Planned Features

Installation Tutorial / Demo

Local Demo

If you have the latest version of Vagrant and Virtual Box setup you can demo things locally by running make develop. This will spin up a temporary developer copy on your local computer without needing an actual server to point things at. Note no data will actually be saved from inside the VM, so this is for testing only.

Optional Items

Domain Name

A domain configured with a A type DNS record of * pointed at your server's IP address. (This is optional because you can use Tor to access your services without registering a domain. For best support from 3rd party clients an actual domain is highly recommended. Also certain services do not work through TOR at the moment.) Note you can hang this off a subdomain as well, so * will work as well.

Port Forwarding

Ports 80 and 443 punched through any firewalls and port forwarded at your server in question. (This is also optional due to Tor access, but again highly recommended.)

Cloud Bastion Server

Rather than pointing the domain at your home IP and having to manage DDNS, you can utilize a cloud server to act as a bastion host via Tinc vpn and nginx.
