Homarr is a homepage for your server, that helps you easily access all of your services in one place through multiple, custom configurations. 📺
Dashboards, dashboards, everywhere dashboards! We need more dashboards and I have just what you are looking for with this brand new application! Alright, enough of that, let's see what this new Homarr homepage dashboard is all about.
What is Homarr?
Homarr is a simple and lightweight homepage for your server, that helps you easily access all of your services in one place through multiple, custom configurations. Homarr can be used as an ordinary dashboard but the emphasis is to monitor your upcoming TV shows and Movie releases through the Sonarr and Radar API.
- Web search
- Calendar view for Sonarr TV shows
- Date and time
- Easy load configuration files for multiple dashboard setups
- Auto adds icons from application name
- Docker image
- Light and Dark modes
- API for apps
Modules are blocks shown on the sides of the Homarr dashboard that display information. They can be enabled in the Homarr settings and there are currently two modules you can enable which are Date and Time and Calendar.
You can choose which web search to use between, Google, DuckuckGo, Bing or a custom search such as Searx
Homarr supports API calls to Sonarr, Radarr, Lidarr, qBittorrent, Plex and Emby with plans for adding more in the near future. When using the Sonarr API, Homarr will show you any upcoming TV shows when you hover over the day on the calendar view.
Adding a Service in Homarr
You can add a service simply by clicking the button in the upper right corner.
The icons used in Homarr are automatically requested from this curated dashboard icons repo. If Homarr cannot find the icon for the application you add, you can add your own image link to use as the icon.
Homarr Configuration Files
Homarr stores your page config files in a JSON file making it super simple to have multiple dashboards open similtaniously. You can download configuration files in the settings menu and store them in the Homarr data diretory. Then, choose which config you want to load in the settings menu.
Final Notes and Thoughts
I'll be honest, when I first came across Homarr, I thought to myself "are you kidding me? Another dashboard?!" but hold the phone, Homarr turned out to be much more than I expected in a very unique way.
I like being able to swap configurations at the flick of a button and Homarr makes this effortless. You can run different configurations in different browser tabs for multiple use cases.
If you find Homarr usefull, be sure to stop by the Homarr Github repo and leave a star! We'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!
