  • GNU Jami Taranis Released For Free Software Conferencing, Peer-To-Peer Communication - Phoronix

    GNU Jami "Taranis" has been released as a major update to this free software project for peer-to-peer communication and SIP-based messaging. GNU Jami is what previously started out as SFLphone and then GNU Ring for initially being focused on softphones.

    Taranis is the name of the new GNU Jami release, which they describe as a major update. Jami sums itself up as "a GNU package for universal communication that respects the freedom and privacy of its users. Jami is an end-to-end encrypted secure and distributed voice, video, and chat communication platform that requires no central server, and leaves the power of privacy and freedom in the hands of users."

    Jami Taranis release highlights
    -------------------------------
    
    The highlights of the Taranis release of Jami include:
    
    - Windows 11 support
    - Phase one of Swarms: synchronized 1-to-1 conversations
      - The first phase of Swarm support in Jami is now available
        across all platforms.
      - Swarms are fully distributed, peer-to-peer chats with conversation
        histories synchronized across your devices, and the potential to
        be expanded into group chats in upcoming future releases of Jami.
        See our earlier article Swarm: a new generation of group
        conversations[1] to learn more about Swarms.
      - In the first phase of Swarm support, Swarms enable synchronization
        of 1-to-1 conversations across multiple devices associated with
        the same account.  See the full release announcement linked above
        for more details.
    - Improvements to conferences and rendezvous points:
      - fine-grained moderation tools for conferences,
        such as 'moderator mute' and 'kick'; 
      - 'raise hand' feature for indicating intention to speak; and
      - enhanced screen-sharing now allowing sharing individual windows,
        in addition to the already-available options of sharing the entire
        desktop or a selected screen area.
      - Read more about these enhancements and new features for
        conferences and rendezvous points in our recent article

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
