  • What to use with Docker?
    I guess most people already recommended plex wrapperr, tautulli, and plex-meta-manager. If you want to host your own budget software, there is firefly iii. Calibre with calibre-web is nice for organizing e-books, imo. I also like OpenProject for organizing projects, like stuff from work or renovating a room. - Source: Reddit / 7 days ago

    My suggestion is to organize your e-books via Calibre and then use Calibre-Web for sharing. You can set it up to allow browsing and downloads without the reader portion. You'll have to allow access to the server in some manner (e.g., Tailscale, open port, Cloudflare Tunnel). - Source: Reddit / 22 days ago
  • Any tool for eBook web self-publishing?
    You can use, but you'll have to create calibre database at first launch. For docker container you'll have to exec inside it and run following commands: Cd /app/calibre/bin #go to the bin folder Calibredb restore_database --really-do-it --with-library /books #create a new db Chmod a+w /books/metadata.db #add write privileges Exit After that all settings and app support can... - Source: Reddit / 22 days ago
