What is swizzin?
swizzin is a collection of bash scripts for Debian-based servers which helps you automate the boring and repetitive tasks of installing, managing and adminsitering a seedbox server. Originally based on QuickBox, swizzin forked away and brought new life to the project in the form of extended OS support, the nginx webserver, a custom built dashboard and extended application support.
Is swizzin actively maintained?
Yes! swizzin currently supports Debian Stretch and Buster, as well as Ubuntu Xenial, Bionic and Focal. Packages are kept in working order and reported, reproducible issues are promptly patched. Support for operating systems is subject to change based on availability of upstream support; however, new long-term support versions of Debian & Ubuntu will be added accordingly.
Is swizzin bloated?
swizzin only installs the applications you request and the dependencies required to support them. In addition to this, there are a few other global dependencies installed during setup which are generally required by a large portion of packages. As far as which packages to install, that's completely up to you!
Why not put it all in docker?
We prefer to keep our applications running as close to the metal as possible. There are many valid times and places where docker would be a good systematic choice, however we believe the trade-offs are not worth it for a seedbox scenario. Keeping apps outside of containers helps you grow buffer, and a lets you tinker with everything as much as you want.
