What's new in Self Hosted this week?

This week there wasn't a ton of new apps surfacing, however, we did find a few golden nuggets for you to try out. Let's get right into it! πŸš€


HomelabAPI is a self-hosted API that you can use to consolidate all of your homelab notifications and other outputs. This allows you to use HomelabAPI as your central input/output hub, and if you ever want to change where your homelab outputs go, it's just a matter of updating your HomelabAPI configuration.

Supported Inputs, Headphones, HealthChecks, Home Assistant, LazyLibrarian, Radarr, Monit, SmokePing, Sonarr, Synology, Tailscale, UptimeRobot, Any POST Webhook that allows you to specify a request body

Here is a (restricted) demo.

Due to the nature of HomelabAPI, a fully functional demo is a bit tricky, however I do have a copy installed on the below URL so that people can check the system out and look through the API documentation.

Forumium is a simple Forum platform made with the Laravel Framework and the elegant TALLkit Filament. The development of the graphical part, and what gave us the majority of the development ideas, was based on the Open Source Flarum discussion system.

What is the key differences between Forumium and Flarum?

Forumium is based on Laravel and the logic is specific. Β The administration is based on a TALLkit (Filament) that makes it more extensible, and also some profile stats (visits, charts, etc.)
