HomeServer

Private cloud for home

One of my longest, on-going projects - started as a simple print & scan server back on uni, when buying a network printer was out of the option.

Through the years it has gained more and more functionality, then lost some, then I couldn't be bothered maintaining everything by myself anymore 😅

Below you can find a timeline of the main app screenshots — and see for yourself how much has changed!
