Github project n.eko is a virtual browser based on the docker isolation environment, supports two types of browsers, Chrome and Firefox, and has built-in chat/simple user management functions. The UI design is very beautiful.
Project address: https://github.com/nurdism/neko
The program requires a relatively high configuration, see here for details:https://n.eko.moe/#/quick-start
Here are recommended specs:
To run it in a low resource VPS, such as only 1GB RAM, 1vCPU, we will have to change SWAP size to make it more stable.
Firewall Ports Open
Please make sure following two firewall rules created on your cloud VPS’s firewall.
Change SWAP Size
Install Docker and Docker-Compose
Create docker-compose.yml and bring Neko docker up
cd ~ mkdir neko cd neko vi docker-compose.yml
Put following code into docker-compose.yml file based on the browser type.
SCREEN_DEPTH can be changed to 16 to save some resource usage on your host VPS.
Now you should be able to browser to your Neko’s web interface with this url : http://<public ip>:8080
