As most of you are aware Doob has decided to split from SudoBox and run his own project. While this is upsetting we are still in touch and support his venture.
Business as usual, the new developers we have brought onboard have been great and are already contributing towards the project. They have bonded well with the team.
The past few weeks the Dev Team have been working tirelessly to create our own Rclone mount and uploader containers.
These have been re-written from scratch. They will be improved and then updated as we progress forward. Since we have coded these from the ground up they will also integrate with our main dashboard seamlessly. Compatibility is key here.
Those using PTS/PG will be able to run our script to update to the newer containers and use them just the same but will have the addition of a few added features. You also get the benefit of being able to use the same containers once our dashboard is complete. Anyone else using Docker will also be able to use these containers following our documentation.
Currently the containers are being tested by the SudoBox Team. Very soon we would like to deploy these to the staff and support teams to BETA test and find any final bugs. Once the teams are happy with the containers, we will be releasing them to the public as open source repositories for anyone and everyone to contribute too. Comments have been added throughout the code to give detailed instruction as to what has been done and to help assist future contributors. We already have multiple upcoming features in place that will be implemented in future versions and that list is pretty huge.
Please note that these are subject to change.
We wanted to keep this UI very clean and minimal, so when the uploader is installed all this information will be live streamed to the SudoBox Dashboard. Below are some screenshots for the SB-Uploader UI that will come built in. This great design work has been done by @MyFavourite.
We have big plans for the mount container and are already BETA testing our container amongst the Dev team. For now, we won’t go into much detail as it is still under development but here are a few key features that you can expect.
The first benefit is the rapid container deployment. As soon as the container is deployed, your mount services are readily available to the host. There are many optimisations for streaming media that are all configurable by the user. Another feature we think you will like is the ability to use a graphical user interface to monitor and control your mounts as well as being able to make new Rclone configurations and also add mounts on the fly.
Below are a few screenshots to give you an idea of what it is going to look like.
As usual, you know we love to hear from you guys! Let us know your thoughts below.
