A framework for hosting federated webapps on your local machine.

Some web applications, particularly federated ones, are suitable for running on your local machine rather than hosting on an remote server you don't control. Sandstorm is a platform designed to help you run and maintain these applications, retain your data on your own machine, and optionally use their federation features to contact and publish to remote servers at your own discretion.

Representative webapps supported include Ghost (blogging), GNU MediaGoblin (media sharing), Mailpile (email), Tiny Tiny RSS (feedreading) and others.


README (Apache 2.0) includes installation, usage and porting notes
