My Idlers - Self-hosted web app for your servers, shared hosting and domain information

My Idlers is a web app for displaying, organizing and storing information about your servers (VPS), shared hosting and domains.

Despite the name, this self-hosted web app isn't just for storing idling server information. By using a YABs output you can store and display disk & network speed values along with GeekBench 5 scores to do easier comparing and sorting.

    Delete server data, in the domain section, should be delete domain info? And the term, for domain registration, is normally annual or plus.

  • Cool. Waiting for some user authentication. If it is guaranteed that only I can enter data, then I will show my data to others as soon as possible. Of course also bring the address of the project

  • i am getting this error:

    PHP version?

  • 7.3

  • It looks like really good. Thank You! :)

    It would be good an extra, optional field for the VM/server name (nickname): domain + server 'name'. Maybe I'm alone with it, but my VM's usually get a 'name', (for example: alpha beta, gamma.. mars, zeus.. etc). It help identify and manage them, and sometimes the hosted main domain/subdomain is not the same with the server 'nickname'.

    Cool, now hackers can find idle and probably unmaintained free-to-take over VPS' easily.

    Please don't use this if you don't actively maintain your servers.

    OP, nice idea still.

  • Jesus tap-dancing christ, why are you making PHP emit all that HTML and you're mixing inline db calls with those to boot.

  • My eyes! They're now full of 🩸.

    @corbpie well done, so much manual work but the time you've spend writing this line by line could be done in a few hours by using any PHP framework of your choice.

    Doesn't make sense. Fake news you'd say.

    I really love how some people still making their own framework.

    function openTag, function closeThatTag and so on. 🤣
    

    Reinventing the wheel never going out even in 2021 after decades of having frameworks for each use-case.

  • Nice

    Why would you expose this to the public? That seems like something the user does and not the responsibility of the user. I'm scared for you if you don't expect to provide security for yourself and expect it all from apps you use.

  • I kinda wanted to give this a try then I read about MySQL. Why would I run mysql on my idle boxes?! Why this is not sqlite file or something :(

  • I've installed it today, it's really useful ^^.

    Had 4 issues:

    • had to check web logs to see that my MySQL credentials were not good ; should show an error directly on the website
    • was not able to edit a provider set on a domain so i had to change it manually in MySQL directly
    • was not able to delete a domain
    • button switch to table is not able to go back to cards view ; instead it just repeat table again and again and again

    Either a cached old scripts.min.js file or fixed here: c882d4702656cd5568b379f93c591b9252539e9d

    as example website is working fine

    I feel that this application can add optional settings so that all the information of the service released by the administrator, some can be seen by the public, and some cannot be seen by the public. For example, performance testing. This is not very useful for our own purposes. I feel that it is more of reference value, so it is necessary to show it to everyone, so that sometimes there is no need to copy and paste some messy log text. At the same time, for IP address or the SSH port of the server, we don't want to be seen by the public, so these can be added with hidden functions.

    It mainly depends on the demand. I think this application is great, but it shouldn’t be used only by ourselves, it should be a demonstration.

    I want others to not see the IP of my server and SSH port of that. At the same time, I can only publish information by myself, and others cannot publish information. It is not good idea of making this application a completely private application. It depends entirely on the author’s wishes.

    Thank you, i've installed yesterday from the master branch. Will git pull to give it a try ^^.

    I've forgot to mention i use Firefox 85.0 (64 bits) on Windows 10.

  • @corbpie, once its all set can you stick it in a docker?

    I recently re-made this project onto the Laravel framework:

    This will simplify development and most of the features from the original build are present in V2.

    Using Laravel brings an API endpoint and the possibility to show servers publicly with certain parameters removed.

    2.0 changes:

    Unfortunately you cannot migrate your current install to the new 2.0 version

    • Laravel framework (version 9).
    • Breeze authentication.
    • API GET for any of the CRUD data.
    • Labels (titles/desc) CRUD.
    • Misc services CRUD.
    • DNS CRUD.
    • Ip address CRUD.
    • Reseller hosting.
    • Added Operating systems to DB, Deleting and creating them now possible.
    • Make servers displayable public with config options to hide certain values.
    • Vue JS used where possible.
    • Datatables used on large tables (Locations, labels, and providers).
    • Added caching for home page and servers

    Seeking a project sponsor

    I am seeking at least a 1GB ram, Nvme VPS to host a demo installation of My idlers. In return you will get your provider as the default selection in the create forms, as well as in screenshots.

    Nice work. 👍 Is it possible you add SQLite support? I think Laravel has native support for it. Didn't test yet if changing the settings myself is sufficient.

    I actually started an attempt to port the old version to sqlite but never had time to really get much work done. I might look into porting this version instead if I get some time to spare, just need to get it installed and move all the data from the old version first.

    @rcy026

    I just tried then using SQLite connection and it seemingly works fine (after renaming conflicting unique indexes).

    in .env have

    DB_CONNECTION=sqlite
    DB_FOREIGN_KEYS=true
    

    Then run:

    touch database/database.sqlite

    php artisan migrate:fresh --seed

    And make sure in php.ini extension=pdo_sqlite is uncommented.

    The foreign key flag should not be set I guess. I have just experienced statements errors when testing with SQLite. Despite this, it's working good with SQLite and maybe you can remove the MySQL dependency in the description to avoid confusion since all databases supported natively by Laravel appear to be working with your app.

  • m4num4nu Member, Patron Provider

    Happy to announce that "My Idlers" is now available for free on PikaPods.com. 🎉

    Had to make a basic Dockerfile and adjust some SSL settings. Here my Pull Request to merge those changes back and hopefully get an official container image, @corbpie : https://github.com/cp6/my-idlers/pull/35

  • m4num4nu Member, Patron Provider

    An addendum to my previous pull request, since the Docker startup script would overwrite the database when updating or recreating the container. 😬

    Maybe we can set it up in a way to work without .env file, @corbpie ? I didn't get it working yet because it's needed at least for the APP_KEY. Not an urgent issue though.
