Manage your Self Hosted Applications using DashMachine

It’s a great thing to be able to manage all of your self-hosted applications from one dashboard. DashMachine makes this not only easy but also pleasing to the eyes! With this application you can bookmark and have easy access to your apps with icons for quick reference.

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.

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.
 
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.
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.

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
 
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.
