This is a proof of concept project I threw together over the last few days, it's not perfect, but it looks nice. This uses web rtc to stream a desktop inside of a docker container, I made this because rabb.it went under and my internet can't handle streaming and discord keeps crashing. I just want to watch anime with my friends ლ(ಠ益ಠლ) so I started digging throughout the net and found a few kinda clones, but non of them had the virtual browser, then I found Turtus and I was able to figure out the rest. This is by no means a fully featured clone of rabbit, it hs only one room. Its stateless, so no saved user names or passwords.
I like cats (Neko is the Japanese word for cat), I'm a weeb/nerd, I own the domain n.eko.moe and I love the logo /shrug
Super easy mode setup
Deploy a Server/VPS
Recomended Specs: (Note: these may not be correct, I did a small round testing, 4c/4gb worked fine with small hickups here and there)
Resolution Cores Ram Recommendation 576p 2 2gb Not Recommended 720p 4 4gb Good Performance 720p 6 4-6gb Recommended 720p+ 8 8gb+ Best Performance
curl -sSL https://get.docker.com/ | CHANNEL=stable bash
Run these commands:
ufw allow 80/tcp wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/nurdism/neko/master/docker-compose.yaml docker-compose up -d
Visit the IP address of the droplet in your browser and login, the default password is
nano docker-compose.yamlto edit the settings, then press ctrl+x to exit and save the file.
Running the container:
sudo docker run -p 8080:8080 -e NEKO_PASSWORD='secret' -e NEKO_ADMIN='secret' --shm-size=1gb nurdism/neko:latest
--shm-size=1gb is required, firefox-esr tabs will crash
