Project Autonomous

By chimo on (updated on )
In an effort to take control of my online presence/data and to become more autonomous, I started to migrate away from services hosted by 3rd-parties and setup my own instances where possible.

Here’s a quick list of what’s working at the moment:
A Hugo-powered static site/blog
Publishing platform similar to Blogger.
A Nextcloud instance.
I use it as a Dropbox alternative, Google Calendar alternative, Contact Manager and Tasks synchronization for now, but it does more than that.
On Android, I use DAVx5 to sync calendar & contacts.
A Grafana instance.
Monitoring things. At the moment, just my Incus instance.
Mail server powered by postfix, dovecot, SpamAssassin, OpenDKIM, OpenDMARC, and SnappyMail I use K-9 Mail on Android.
