A few months ago, I had a look on the freedombox project, and while it
was promising, the main features I wanted were not implemented.
Basically, I needed emails and single sign-on, plus some emphasis on
strong security and privacy. I did not need all the software and servers
in the list. None of the project I have seen online where providing
exactly what I wanted.
I have been self-hosted for years, but after a migration from a
dedicated server online to a low power consumption mini server at home,
I wanted to create some scripts to do it properly. I started a project
on Github, you will find a link below.
I think I have achieved this. The way I did it is very transparent, so
you can see what I have done. Everything is done through Ansible
scripts. I may extract a few parts in different repositories.
I am sending this email for many valid reasons, IMHO:
- I see email and SSO are on your roadmap, and I reckon it is something
long to achieve, if done properly. What I have done might be useful to
- I will focus more on open source hardware boards and fully automatic
installation of the whold system (OS and Software). I reckon this will
overlap with FreedomBox.
The link to the project: https://github.com/progmaticltd/homebox
I am registered in UK, as a company, and this will allow me pay some
people to do a few things I do not have the time or skills to do myself.
Anything developed will be published in GPLv3 or any appropriate open
source license, and submitted to Debian.
Have a look on the official documentation, and list of features.
