Hello good people -
Could the installation of Yunohost be simplified dramatically (thereby making self hosting available to many more people) by a relatively low-cost simple reverse proxy service?
This would be a service that forwards requests from a URL to a yunohost intance. As a service, it would be similar to pagekite or ngrok other utilities that enable sharing a localhost / various services from machines behind firewalls.
- No need to open ports on router / firewall. Communication between the yunohost machine in the user’s home and the reverse proxy could be handled in the application, the user doesn’t have to know or care how.
- This would make it possible to make the dns / subdomain management / etc. handled automagically between yunohost and the service.
- Could still keep the SSL certs / etc. on the local yunohost, since the service is just in charge of forwarding requests.
This seems too easy - and would make self-hosting much more availble to the common person, right? Or am I missing something?
