edited February 3 in General

My Idlers is a web app for displaying, organizing and storing information about servers (VPS), shared hosting and domains.

Despite what the name infers this self-hosted web app isn't just for storing idling server information. By using a YABs output you can get disk & network speed values along with GeekBench 5 scores to do easier comparing and sorting.

Version 1.3 31st Jan 2021

  • Really nice features :)

  • Does it have a means to store YABs history? Add to that, it'll be great to have a way to compare different YABs results from different test times. :)

    this is a super tool, i will check it out.
    Thank you very much.

  • looks awesome. already have a few more suggestions I'd love to see:

    • a field for non standard ssh port
    • a free text field to add any individual info or note
    • put it behind some login (ideally ofc a small user management to share data individually)
      ...

    thanks for sharing and all the efforts you already put into that!

  • Also: a way to back up or export to CSV or Excel format :)

  • Did you copy that nameserver field from whcms?

    Thanked by (1)webcraft
  • I like your subdomain naming!

    User management would be overkill and any homemade user management is subject to attacks. For starters, it's very easy to make mistakes in how to store passwords.

    An easier and more secure way is to deploy two separate webapps:

    • An admin site that allows editing.
    • An external site for showcasing, with no editing capability. List of displayed fields are determined through a config file.

    Then, the user can have the admin site listen on localhost and accessed via SSH tunnel, while the external site can either be open to everyone or placed behind Basic Auth configured in HTTP server.

  • Love the 'View YABS' feature :D

    Layout/formatting could be better I suppose.

    True. At first, I thought that was the Close button :D. It's just the first release, and we might see changes in the future based on the feedback from the community.

    Yeah.

    Nevertheless, it's a piece of work 👍

    Well done! Looks great :)

    What in tarnation? A little yabs'll do ya!

  • If I use a server to manage other servers, should I add the server itself to the list?

    Be aware or Be next

    No, that server should go on a sticky note instead, stuck to your monitor or CPU :joy:

  • Just a couple of feature requests (if you are accepting them and they are within scope of the project):

    • Password protection for portal login (doesn't have to be a full user management deal, just an option to add a password prompt)
    • Option to create a HTML report or provide some sort of public facing view to allow people to view your servers publicly, with perhaps options on what details to show to the public or not (such as DNS, IP, etc.)

    This looks awesome and will likely replace my spreadsheet I have. :)

    Cheap dedis are my drug, and I'm too far gone to turn back.

    Unfortunately, in my country, sticky note and maker may count as weapon, I cannot use sticky note at will. :#

    -You didn't used a framework so you are missing good security practices. Good thing you used PDO.
    @everyone
    -This project is not to be hosted publicly accessible. Basically there is zero user management, means no login, no secure sessions, no token etc. I guess is ok if you host it in your local computer where nobody can access it from the outside.

    This is why you don't reinvent the wheel, instead you choose from one of the proven secure and stable PHP frameworks which already include best user management practices. User management is never overkill.

    This is your opinion, but is not the year 1998.

    Will work on that just for Disk & network speeds though.

    Thank you, they're on the todo list.

    Export & import would be great however these can only be done once it is settled on the final fields/inputs.

    The NS1 and NS2? No, i was just cutting down on using "Name server"

    Thanks, that is a nice idea and has been noted.
