Where stars are born.

Manages the local infrastructure of my home server. I'm also doing blog posts around the same:

  1. Part 1, Hardware
  2. Part 2, Terraform/Docker
  3. Part 3, Learnings
  4. Part 4, Migrating from Google (and more)
  5. Part 5, Networking
  6. Part 6, RAID

The canonical URL for this repo is A mirror is maintained on GitHub at


  1. docker: to actually run the services. Catch-all for miscellaneous containers
  2. cloudflare: to manage the DNS.
  3. mysql: to create mysql users and databases.
  4. media: Media related containers (Jackett, Lidarr, Radarr, Sonarr)
  5. Monitoring: Monitoring related resources (Cadvisor, Grafana, NodeExporter, Prometheus, Transmission-Exporter)
  6. Gitea: Just
  7. miniflux: RSS Web reader
  8. Radicale: CardDav/CalDav webserver

Self-learning project for terraform/docker.


  1. ~Setup DigitalOcean~
  2. Add DO infrastructure via ansible
  3. ~Add traefik for proper proxying~
  4. Maybe add docker swarm (or k8s?) across both the servers. Might setup the k8s API on the Raspberry Pi.

Docker Notes

  • Lots of the above images are from the excellent, and they're doing great work 👍
  • Most images are running the latest beta (if available) or stable versions.
  • Traefik is running with wildcard certificates.


I've been using this as a contributing opportunity and reporting/fixing issues upstream:

  1. Airsonic HTTPS proxying is broken. Reported: Turned out to be a known issue: Now fixed.
  2. Traefik docker backend security headers were broken with dashes. I reported it here, and fixed by
  3. Headphones dies repeatedly with no error logs. Yet-to-report. (Already reported, fails due to classical artists)
  4. Terraform doesn't parse mariadb version numbers. Report: Filed a PR to fix and to bump the go-version dependency
  5. elibsrv didn't support ebook-convert, only mobigen. PR is at Merged to elibsrv trunk, will be part of next release.
  6. ubooquity docker container doesn't let you set admin password: (Couldn't reproduce, closed)
  7. Traefik customresponseheaders can't contain colons on the docker backend: Fixed with
  8. Traefik Security headers don't overwrite upstream headers:
  9. Transmission exporter broke with different data types while unmarshalling JSON in go. I filed a PR
  10. Radarr official docker container was running a very old mediainfo. Filed a fix to upgrade mediainfo on the official radarr image
  11. Patched the speedtest-exporter to use Alpine and upgraded Node.JS for a smaller updated build.
  12. Faced (4) above again because mariadb decided to add : in the version response. Workaround was to force set --version=10.3-mariadb
  13. Reported 2 critical security issues in Abstruse CI.
  14. Faced (13) above again with postgres, thankfully someone already fixed version parsing
  15. RSS Bridge was missing an official Docker Image. I Filed a PR


Their is a lot of additional infrastructure that is not-yet part of this repo. This includes:

  1. The Digital Ocean droplet running DNSCrypt and simpleproxy to proxy over a openvpn connection to this box.
  2. openbox, kodi configuration to run on boot along with the Steam Controller for the HTPC setup
  3. Docker main configuration with half-baked CA setup
  4. btrfs-backed subvolumes and snapshotting for most things in /mnt/xwing/ (in-progress)
  5. User-creation on the main server. (I'm using a common user for media applications and specific users for other applications)
