What are your suggestions for a setup of a perfect server, software side of things?

Recommended and mentioned products

  1. Transmission has the features you expect in a BitTorrent client: encryption, a web-based interface...

    Qbittorrent, Transmission, Deluge- out of the entire variety of torrents, there are three left =).
  2. A robust and flexible online tool for time tracking and leave management for freelancers, consultants, small and medium-sized companies.

    Cattr, Youtrack, Activity watch - this is my search for an application to manage my projects and track the time spent on them. The closest thing to the ideal is the online service Trackabi. Youtrack is too fancy, more like Jira. Cattr does not know how to track active applications and project management is very simple. Activity watch is good at keeping track of active windows, but it needs a bundle with...
  3. Sonarr (formerly NzbDrone) is a PVR for Usenet and BitTorrent users.

    Radarr, Sonarr, Jackett- "holy Trinity" for searching and downloading TV series and movies. There are difficulties with finding releases that are not in English. I'm still looking for optimal settings, but in general everything works.
  4. A fork of Sonarr designed to work with Movies.

    Radarr, Sonarr, Jackett- "holy Trinity" for searching and downloading TV series and movies. There are difficulties with finding releases that are not in English. I'm still looking for optimal settings, but in general everything works.
  5. PhotoPrism® is a privately hosted app for browsing, organizing and sharing your personal photo collection.

    open-source

    Photoprism and Synology moments - Photo galleries. After the news about google photos, I'm looking for alternatives. These are interesting options.
  6. Open source document management system designed for archiving and retrieving your digital documents. Instead of having piles of paper documents all over your desk, office or drawers - you can quickly scan and upload them to Papermerge DMS.

    Paperless-ng - document archiving system. It can receive documents via a folder, by mail, or from a scanner. Sorting, tags, OCR, search, finding a hard copy, and much more. Checks, bills, guarantees, insurance-I send everything there. There is an alternative PaperMerge, but it works unstable for me.
  7. Ombi is a front end user facing request system.

    Ombi and Overseer-a system of requests for adding movies and TV series, work together with Raddar \ Sonarr. On the way home ,I "ordered" a movie, and by the time I got there, it was in Plex \ Emby.
  8. An open source, modern and powerful wiki app built on Node.js, Git, and Markdown.

    Bookstack and Wiki.js -wiki engine, where, among other things, I write down the settings of applications that actually somehow worked.
  9. media server for personal streaming movies tv music photos in mobile app or browser for all devices android iOS windows phone appletv androidtv smarttv and dlna.

    Plex and Emby are two media servers with similar functionality, but the difference is in the details. I haven't decided what I like best yet.
  10. Deluge is a full-featured BitTorrent client for Linux, Unix and Windows.

    Qbittorrent, Transmission, Deluge- out of the entire variety of torrents, there are three left =).
