Self Hosted Roundup #12

This week we bring you lot's of self hosted Raspberry Pi projects and more! 👋

Self Hosted Roundup #12

Summertime is awesome but not so much for Self Hosted projects. As you know, it's been slim pickins' and finding new projects has been a chore! However, I was able to scrape up some goodies for this weeks roundup. But first, some small news bits.

News Bits

In Self hosted Roundup #10, we mentioned LinkWarden, a new bookmark app. At the time, it did not have a Docker image. I was notified that it now has a Docker image so go give it a try!

Have you ever wondered what it takes to self host you own domain name? Technitium has written a detailed article about how you can do this but be ready for the work it takes to setup! Is it worth it though?

Self Hosted Applications

What's new in Self Hosted apps this week? These apps may be new or apps that we really enjoy using.


SelfRemind is a selfhosted To-do List Manager built with Next.js, Chakra-UI and MySQL. Easily deploy using Docker Compose.

Raspberry Pi Server

Raspberry Pi Server setup help files and instructions. The goal is to have docker self hosted apps accessible only through VPN (containerized as well).

This setup will cover:

  • installing operating system and accessing it via ssh
  • installing docker
  • installing docker containers: portainer, nextcloud, wireguard, samba - using docker-compose and installing with portainer
  • setting up a custom bridge network to access containers only through VPN connection
  • installing wireguard client on ubuntu/debian and connecting to the server
  • setting up automatic backup using crontab and rsync (+ fstab mounting option)
  • description of issues that occurred during the setup


Backup Docker volumes locally or to any S3 or WebDAV compatible storage

The offen/docker-volume-backup Docker image can be used as a lightweight (below 15MB) sidecar container to an existing Docker setup. It handles recurring or one-off backups of Docker volumes to a local directory, any S3, WebDAV or SSH compatible storage (or any combination) and rotates away old backups if configured. It also supports encrypting your backups using GPG and sending notifications for failed backup runs.


Pi-Hosted is a collection of tutorials for hosting a variety of server applications using Docker and Portainer. Deploying Docker images using Portianer's App Templates feature making it super easy to host your own apps.


SkyPi is self hosting on a budget using DietPi.


Forem is open source software for building communities. Communities for your peers, customers, fanbases, families, friends, and any other time and space where people need to come together to be part of a collective. You can check out for a demo!

That's all I have this week but if you can't get enough, you can always check out the Self Hosted Roundup tag to see more.
