Based on Github project page, Flame is self-hosted startpage for your server. Its design is inspired (heavily) by SUI. Flame is very easy to setup and use. With built-in editors, it allows you to setup your very own application hub in no time – no file editing necessary.

There is similar projected , Flare, which is more like a Chinese version of Flame. It does provide quite a few enhancements on features and speed, but one thing it is missing from Flare is the authentication, although Flare seems much nicer and faster. 

In this post, I am going to show you how to get both projects up and running in the cloud, and more specifically, how to run in in Fly.io platform. 

Introduction

Flame: https://github.com/pawelmalak/flame

Flame is self-hosted startpage for your server. Easily manage your apps and bookmarks with built-in editors.

Flare: https://github.com/soulteary/docker-flare

Flare  Lightweight, high performance and fast self-hosted navigation pages, resource utilization rate is <1% CPU, MEM <30 M, Docker Image < 10M
Flare project was inspired from another similar project Flame in Github: https://github.com/pawelmalak/flame

Feature list:

  • 📝 Create, update, delete your applications and bookmarks directly from the app using built-in GUI editors
  • 📌 Pin your favourite items to the homescreen for quick and easy access

  • 🐳 Docker integration to automatically pick and add apps based on their labels

Docker Run & Docker Compose

Flame:


docker run -p 5005:5005 -v /path/to/data:/app/data -e PASSWORD=flame_password pawelmalak/flame

Docker-compose.yml

version: '3.6'

services:
  flare:
    image: soulteary/flare
    restart: always
    # 默认无需添加任何参数,如有特殊需求
    # 可阅读文档 https://github.com/soulteary/docker-flare/blob/main/docs/advanced-startup.md
    command: flare
    # 启用账号登陆模式
    # command: flare --nologin=0
    # environment:
      # 如需开启用户登陆模式,需要先设置 `nologin` 启动参数为 `0`
      # 如开启 `nologin`,未设置 FLARE_USER,则默认用户为 `flare`
      # - FLARE_USER=flare
      # 指定你自己的账号密码,如未设置 `FLARE_USER`,则会默认生成密码并展示在应用启动日志中
      # - FLARE_PASS=your_password
      # 是否开启“使用向导”,访问 `/guide`
      # - FLARE_GUIDE=1
    ports:
      - 5005:5005
    volumes:
      - ./app:/app

docker-compose up -d

Flare:


docker run --rm -it -p 5005:5005 -v `pwd`/app:/app soulteary/flare

Docker-compose.yml

version: '3.6'

services:
  flame:
    image: pawelmalak/flame
    container_name: flame
    volumes:
      - /path/to/host/data:/app/data
      - /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock # optional but required for Docker integration
    ports:
      - 5005:5005
    secrets:
      - password # optional but required for (1)
    environment:
      - PASSWORD=flame_password
      - PASSWORD_FILE=/run/secrets/password # optional but required for (1)
    restart: unless-stopped

# optional but required for Docker secrets (1)
secrets:
  password:
    file: /path/to/secrets/password
docker-compose up -d
