This is a guest post by Alberto Fuentes, Debian contributor. Thanks!!
I’m rebuilding one my home server and decided to take a look at the FreedomBox project as the base for it.
The 0.6 version was recently released and I wasn’t aware of how advanced the project is already!
They have a virtualbox image ready for some quick test. It took me longer to download it than to start using it.
Here’s is a pic of what it looks like to entice you to try it 🙂
All this is already on debian right now and you can turn any debian sid installation into a FreedomBox just by installing a package.
The setup generates everything private on the first run, so even the virtualbox image can be used as the final thing
They use Plinth (Django) to integrate the applications into the web interface. More info on how to help integrate more Debian packages here.
A live demo is going to be streamed this Friday 30 Oct 2015 and a hackaton is scheduled for this saturday 31 Oct 2015.
