FreedomBox is a community project to develop, design and promote personal servers running free software for private, personal communications. It is a networking appliance designed to allow interfacing with the rest of the Internet under conditions of protected privacy and data security. It hosts applications such as blog, wiki, website, social network, email, web proxy and a Tor relay, on a device that can replace your Wi-Fi router, so that your data stays with you.
Plinth is a web interface to administer the functions of the FreedomBox. It is extensible and provides various applications of FreedomBox as modules. Each module or application provides simplified user interface to control the underlying functionality. As FreedomBox can act as a wireless router, it is possible to configure networking from Plinth. Plinth also allows configuration of basic system parameters such as time zone, hostname and automatic upgrades.
See the INSTALL.md file for additional details and dependencies. To install run:
$ sudo python3 setup.py install
Run Plinth on the local system with:
$ sudo plinth
