I recently installed an Owncast server and wanted to share my experience. Here it is:
What is owncast? Owncast is a streaming server that you can selfhost, a Twicht in a box as the developers call it. You host owncast on your server (a small VM with good downlink is enough) and can stream your own own content like you would do on Twicht, YouTube etc…
It has a chat, a admin panel for customization and thats it!
ILMO is my first bigger FOSS-project. It aims at managing small libraries as found in a department of a university. You can finde the project on Github.
History: I started to create ILMO for the (rather small) library in the study rooms of mediacal engineering. It contains about 300 books, 120 labcoats and safty glasses and some more stuff. As I was in charge of the lends I started to get annoyed by our paper-based solution.
