Have you guys heard of #Sandstorm? It's server software you can install on any #Linux box and it's designed so that non-technical people can #SelfHost their own #WebApps. I've been using it for a while and it's pretty awesome. Each file you open is in it's own containerized instance and are #private by default.

@switchingsocial You may want to check this out and add it to your list if your think it's advanced enough. 😃️


@revkellyn @switchingsocial haha, you're welcome! It's a decent song with a really goofy meme associated with it nowadays.

And you're welcome! I wish you much success in its adoption and future use! I'll check it out and see if I can have my dad use it :D

@ryayak1460 @switchingsocial Haha, that's cool!

Yeah I thought it was pretty cool when I checked it out and installed it on my #HomeServer. I don't know the first thing about how to use Containers but it would be cool to see something like #WriteFreely on there with containerized blogs you can share at will. Or maybe a super locked down #pleroma or #mastodon instance. The possibilities are pretty endless.

@revkellyn @switchingsocial I'm genuinely intrigued to know the architecture of this now. It's super powerful and has lots of wonderful applications all ready for use.

It's not exactly what I thought it was (pre-defined apps instead of hosting your own self-made app), but it's actually better than what I thought.
