Awwesome - An Enhanced user interface for Awesome Selfhosted

Here's a fun idea for browsing the Awesome Self-Hosted GitHub repository – you can actually host it yourself!

Awwesome - An Enhanced user interface for Awesome Selfhosted

I'm constantly searching for new self-hosted projects to test out and write about. One of my top recommended resources is the Awesome Self-Hosted GitHub repository. It's a fantastic resource with a vast collection of self-hosted apps neatly organized by category. However, it's important to keep in mind that while it covers a lot, it can't list every self-hosted project out there, and that's perfectly understandable.

What is Awwesome?

Awwesome is an enhanced web interface that makes browsing the self-hosted apps listed on Awesome Self-Hosted a little easier with more details about the project repo.

In this project, Svelte and Tailwind are the key technologies being utilized for its development. These technologies have been chosen for their efficiency and flexibility, allowing the project to deliver a seamless user experience while maintaining a visually appealing design.

The project's main source of data comes from the Awesome Selfhosted repository. This repository is a valuable resource for discovering self-hosted software applications and services across a wide range of categories. By crawling this repository, the project ensures that it remains up-to-date with the latest self-hosted solutions available in the open-source community.

However, the project doesn't stop there. It goes a step further by harnessing the power of GitHub's GraphQL API. This API enables the project to access a wealth of information related to each self-hosted project, such as its stars, forks, issues, and contributors. By fetching this additional data, the project enriches its database with valuable insights, making it a more comprehensive resource for users looking to explore and evaluate self-hosted software options.

Awwesome can also be self-hosted using Docker. Here's the Compose.

version: '3'
    image: mcuadros/ofelia:latest
    container_name: ofelia
      - source
    command: daemon --docker
      - /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock:ro
      ofelia.job-run.awwesome.schedule: "@daily"
      ofelia.job-run.awwesome.container: "awwesome"
    image: mkitzmann/awwesome
    container_name: awwesome
    working_dir: /usr/src/app
    command: sh -c "npm run build && rm -r html/* && cp -r dist/* html && exit"
      - shared_volume:/usr/src/app/html
    image: nginx
    container_name: nginx
      - "8080:80"
      - shared_volume:/usr/share/nginx/html:ro

Just plop in a Github Access Token and you're good to go.

Final Notes and Thoughts

I couldn't help but notice that the "Recently Created" page on GitHub sometimes doesn't get it right, showing projects that have been around for a while ahead of newer ones. It's not without its quirks, but it's definitely a fun place to explore and discover more self-hosted ideas. And all credit goes to the Awesome Selfhosted repository!
