Heimdall was definitely one of the first and well known. I’ve used it in the past. I really like the customization of DashMachine and the motivation the developer shows on this project. Constant updates and implementation of requested features is what keeps me using it.

Just an off topic question. Do you host your website from your nas?

Haha, no. But I don't use google either. Sometimes I think @Rusty does however because half the time I try to load his blog it fails to load.

Have also installed this container and I am testing it. First thing that I see is that it is slower then Heimdall. For the rest I am still busy to discover it.

Correct, I host it on the nas. Unfortunately atm, the internet connection is really dodgy while I wait for fiber this summer. Hopefully Corona will not slow things down too much.

Saving the config can be slow sometimes I noticed. other than that the speed of things seems fine. Not sure why the config save takes so long sometimes. It's always been that way.

I really wanted to self host mine. But then I considered the risks and decided against it.

Also the ram used by dashmachine is a lot higher then Heimdall. See screenhots.

73mb and I'm running 37 bookmarks. I think it really depends on what model NAS you're running too.

You should see how much RAM FreshRSS uses lol. You think 95 is a lot.
FreshRSS use here 53M. So that's not so much. Here the stats of all the containers running on my Nas.

Yep, in the terminal the value is lower then in docker gui on the nas. There is a lag.

I ve installed and setup Dashmachine on my DS1019`+ and after a few hours of all working fine the docker has begun to restart continuously. I have setup a few tags, included some png, but all was working fine and setting file was correctly validated. So... i m the only experiencing this ? Thanks in advance

With last version (a couple days ago) all works like a charm !! :)
 
Thanks for sharing.
Started with Heimdal too, but quickly replaced it with Organizr2. Memory footprint is similar to Heimdal for me.
Organizr2 has some nice dashboard views like current NzbGet download progress, Plex new items and current playback and Sonarr epsiode calendar. It has a group based user management.
