Hello mastodon, but more precisely users (or interested people),

I'm exploring the idea of making a survey on YunoHost to have a better understand on who use it and why and what is important to you and what to improve/already works.

For that, it would be great if you could help me by answering some questions so I can put better questions/more options in the survey :)

I'm going to do 1 toot per question, but let's start with the first one: can you tell me why you are using ?

Can you tell me what are the most common kind of bug you get in ? (like "failing to update applications", "configuring domain" etc...)

Can you tell me what are the things you find hard to do in ? (like "configuring a domain")

Can you tell me what are the part you think we should improve in ? (like "easier admin", "inline documentation", "easier to debug" etc...)

Can you explain me a bit how you are using ? Like "for myself for some apps" "for emails" "for a group of ppl"


For a positive note 😋 what is already good and easy to do in and shouldn't require that much more work? (like other things are more important)

I'll probably have other questions but that's already a lot, thanks a lot for all your answers ❤️

@bram Thank you for taking the time to ask these questions and for all the work you do ! ! ! :blobheart:

@bram yunohost is amazing ! Congrats to everyone that has contributed.

@bram @arthurlutz Yes a very very huuuuuuuuge thank you! Yunohost is amazing!

@bram une fois que ça marche on enchaine les installations de trucs et hop hop hop :D

@bram et plus sérieusement ça m'a permis de pouvoir faire de l'auto-hébergement ; j'aurai clairement abandonné sans ça

@Nausicaa c'est trop trop cool à lire ça ❤️❤️❤️❤️

@bram la gestion des utilisateurs et des authentifications couplé aux installation d'applications. Sans avoir à gérer tout cela à la main ^^

@bram it's a good way to setup our own server in a quick, relatively easy way, and then smoothly acquire knowledge about how it works, how apps works with the server components (Nginx, …).

Once some packaging work has been done, upgrading some apps is as easy as changing the source URL (+Sha256 sum).
(o, it's more due to the app itself than Yunohost, but still, that's a good point)

Also migrating to a new server (or restoring a backup) is quite fast, from a fresh Yunohost install.

@bram Everything is good and easy in ynh 😄

I think the admin-interface has a very intuïtive structure, so is the user-interface. I love how apps can have the ynh symbol that brings people back to the user-interface. The cli is also very intuïtive in structure, esp since it seems to follow the structure of the admin interface, and the --help is always clear imo. Installing is also super easy. I've installed Lime (so just flash the card and boot it up) and on on Debian (so just run a command that runs a script). I also LOVE how the packages ask questions so you can immediately set it up the way you want/like it. Even setting up an app that is not packaged is easy to do and once you can do that, the first steps of creating a package are basically done.

@bram The UI is good, the account creation process simple and install yunoapps is a pleasure

@bram installing an app is good and easy–but other service providers do it.

What is *awesome* is how easy it is to upgrade an app. The upgrade path is often neglected by cloud/docker providers–and Yunohost makes the maintainance and upgrading of live apps reaaaally easy.

@bram installation process , one-click app installation, sso , backup (still experimental ?)

@bram yunohost is awesome ! Kudos to all the people that make this possible and with such a nice community with it.

@bram Pretty much any level 7 app is good. Lol.
A vpn would be very, very nice.
I already mentioned the nameserver thing (dns management).

@unklebonehead tor is somewhere on the todo list yes, I know people are working on vpnserver app and some people (without free time :() wants to integrate vpns into yunohost core
