      Would you like to help? Right now it's just very rudimentary, basically
      "install app" and
      "remove app" and
      "update everything"
      but as you say, it should run a local DNS server, have some way of configuring networking and added peripherals (e.g. external disks) etc.

      Love, the idea...was thinking something similar after looking at the configuration of google's coder for raspberry pi!  Provides a nice launchpad for mDNS, local administration, and simple interface.

      I recently started the Indie Box Project. An open-source project to simplify the installation and maintenance of web apps on embedded Linux devices and plug computers.

      The idea being that with ARM boards becoming really cheap and powerful (e.g. Raspberry PI, lots of others), we can run real web apps on them on hardware we can own and afford, in our own homes. And, over time, talk to each other directly, without having to through some central, feudal authority.

      The feudal overlords have changed since this list was created. The problem remains. But what if we could have all our own personal cloud aka Indie Box?

      P.S. Help wanted.
