Dim

Dashboard Discord

Dim is a self-hosted media manager. With minimal setup, Dim will organize and beautify your media collections, letting you access and play them anytime from anywhere.

Running from binaries

Dependencies

  • libva2
  • libva-drm2
  • libharfbuzz
  • libfontconfig
  • libfribidi
  • libtheora
  • libvorbis
  • libvorbisenc
  • libtheora0

You can then obtain binaries from the release tab in github:

  1. Unpack with unzip ./release-linux.zip && tar -xvzf ./release.tar.gz
  2. Run cd release && ./dim
  3. Then you can access the Dim web UI through your browser with http://0.0.0.0:8000 (assuming it's running locally.)

Running with docker

The following command runs dim on port 8000, storing configuration in $HOME/.config/dim. You may change that path if you'd like to store configuration somewhere else. You can mount as many directories containing media as you like by repeating the -v HOST_PATH:CONTAINER_PATH option. In this example, the path /media on the host is made available at the same path inside the Docker container. This name "media" is arbitrary and you can choose whatever you like.

docker run -d -p 8000:8000/tcp -v $HOME/.config/dim:/opt/dim/config -v /media:/media:ro ghcr.io/dusk-labs/dim:dev

To use hardware acceleration, mount the relevant device:

docker run -d -p 8000:8000/tcp -v $HOME/.config/dim:/opt/dim/config -v /media:/media:ro --device=/dev/dri/renderD128 ghcr.io/dusk-labs/dim:dev

Refer to docker-compose-template.yaml to run dim using Docker Compose.

Running from source

Dependencies

To run from source, you'll first need to install the following dependencies on your system:

  • sqlite
  • cargo
  • rustc (nightly)
  • yarn, npm
  • libssl-dev
  • libva2 (only if you're using Linux)
  • libva-dev (only if you're using Linux)
  • libva-drm2 (only if you're using Linux)
  • ffmpeg

Once the dependencies are installed, clone the repository and build the project:

git clone https://github.com/Dusk-Labs/dim
yarn --cwd ui/ && yarn --cwd ui/ build
mkdir utils && ln -nfs $(which ffmpeg) utils/ffmpeg && ln -nfs $(which ffprobe) utils/ffprobe

If you're on Linux, run dim with:

cargo run --features vaapi --release

On other platforms where libva isn't available, run dim with:

cargo run --release
