Static site

  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Static_web_page - (sometimes called a flat page/stationary page) is a web page that is delivered to the user exactly as stored, in contrast to dynamic web pages which are generated by a web application. Consequently, a static web page displays the same information for all users, from all contexts, subject to modern capabilities of a web server to negotiate content-type or language of the document where such versions are available and the server is configured to do so.

Personal cloud

  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_cloud - a collection of digital content and services which are accessible from any device. The personal cloud is not a tangible entity. It is a place which gives users the ability to store, synchronize, stream and share content on a relative core, moving from one platform, screen and location to another. Created on connected services and applications, it reflects and sets consumers’ expectations for how next-generation computing services will work.[1][citation needed]

The four primary types of personal cloud in use today are: Online cloud, NAS device cloud, server device cloud, and home-made clouds.

You can try it on your desktop or directly set it up on your own server. It performs well on cheap hardwares like the Raspberry Pi or small Digital Ocean VPS.




  • Kubeapps - a web-based UI for deploying and managing applications in Kubernetes clusters


  • flat - a web based docker management solution focusing Single Board Computer (SBC) platforms such as Raspberry Pi and Tinker Board. We borrowed the user interface from Portainer for the time being. (thanks for great work, Portainer team)flat vs. Others: What can flat do more?Although docker has been ported for many different CPUs including ARM, Portainer and similar tools have been focused on serving docker on mainstream server platform such as x86/x64/amd, which almost always never allow/expose/exist H/W capabilities SBC fundamentally provides such as GPIO access, so their lack of support for, for example, host-to-container device-linking and linux CAP allocation is not conincedence.flat, on the other hand, has designed and is evolving to better serve popular SBC platform. It provides all the essential features described above, and on top of that, currently available 50+ templates are built for SBC only. Why? Because SBC is more capable than those servers better be remained untinkered..

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seedbox - a remote server hosted in a high-bandwidth data center used for the safe uploading and downloading of digital files. These speeds range from 100Mbit/s (8MB/s) to 10Gbit/s (1250MB/s). Persons with access to a seedbox can download these files to their personal computers anonymously. Seedboxes generally make use of the BitTorrent protocol for uploading and downloading torrents, although they have also been used on the eDonkey2000 network.

  • https://github.com/mescon/Muximux - a lightweight portal to view & manage your webapps without having to run anything more than a PHP enabled webserver. With Muximux you don't need to keep multiple tabs open, or bookmark the URL to all of your apps.

Web application framework

  • https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Common_Gateway_Interface - offers a standard protocol for web servers to execute programs that execute like Console applications (also called Command-line interface programs) running on a server that generates web pages dynamically. Such programs are known as CGI scripts or simply as CGIs. The specifics of how the script is executed by the server are determined by the server. In the common case, a CGI script executes at the time a request is made and generates HTML. In brief, the CGI program receives HTTP forms data via Unix/Linux standard input, and most other data (such as URL paths, URL arguments, and HTTP header data) via well-known Unix/Linux process environment variables.

  • Wapp - Wapp is a new framework for writing web applications in TCL, with the following advantages: Very small API → easy to learn and use. A complete application is contained in a single file. Resistant to attacks and exploits. Cross-platform → CGI, SCGI, or a built-in web server. The MVC design pattern is supported but not required. The Wapp framework itself is a single-file TCL script that is "source"-ed, "package require"-ed, or even copy/pasted into the application TCL script. 2-clause BSD license. [18]

  • Pyramid - makes it easy to write web applications. You can start small with this "hello world" minimal request/response web app. This may take you far, especially while learning.

  • Falcon - a bare-metal Python web API framework for building very fast app backends and microservices.
  • hug - Drastically simplify API development over multiple interfaces. With hug, design and develop your API once, then expose it however your clients need to consume it. Be it locally, over HTTP, or through the command line - hug is the fastest and most modern way to create APIs on Python3.
  • Bottle - a fast, simple and lightweight WSGI micro web-framework for Python. It is distributed as a single file module and has no dependencies other than the Python Standard Library.
  • CherryPy - A Minimalist Python Web Framework
  • Bottle - a fast, simple and lightweight WSGI micro web-framework for Python. It is distributed as a single file module and has no dependencies other than the Python Standard Library.

  • Mojolicious - A next generation web framework for the Perl programming language. Back in the early days of the web, many people learned Perl because of a wonderful Perl library called CGI. It was simple enough to get started without knowing much about the language and powerful enough to keep you going, learning by doing was much fun. While most of the techniques used are outdated now, the idea behind it is not. Mojolicious is a new endeavor to implement this idea using bleeding edge technologies.

  • Mako - a template library written in Python. It provides a familiar, non-XML syntax which compiles into Python modules for maximum performance. Mako's syntax and API borrows from the best ideas of many others, including Django and Jinja2 templates, Cheetah, Myghty, and Genshi. Conceptually, Mako is an embedded Python (i.e. Python Server Page) language, which refines the familiar ideas of componentized layout and inheritance to produce one of the most straightforward and flexible models available, while also maintaining close ties to Python calling and scoping semantics.
