a bit about the tech stack

Our current plan is to use Cyberia's capsul-flask, which is a web interface for the well-tested libvirtd / KVM stack

capsul-flask is simple enough for humans to hack on, and handles the whole process from "user buying hosting credits" to "self-managing virtual servers". It's been powering for a while, and also our own pre-alpha service on

We also looked into OpenNebula, which has a lot more features, but there's a big gap where a payments / billing system needs to be.

What tech would you like to see in the platform? Do you have experience running virtual servers for your community which you'd like to share? Reply here, send us a DM, or join our -tech Matrix channel 🤙

tech update

We've got another temporary rented dedicated server to use for development and testing, to be able to keep our service more stable. This should speed up our hacking (thanks again to Animorph Co-op for the development help!) on Capsul-Flask, and our other tech infrastructure.

We're looking to move everything to our own hardware, as soon as it's set up, but it's interesting doing this safari of commercial hosting providers in the mean-time.
