Keep in mind, as always, that we are a very small team. There are two active developers working on AzuraCast, and we work very hard! We can't always catch every bug before the releases, though. Using our "rolling release" updates helps ensure you get these fixes immediately.

We've had such a huge support burden from folks using our Ansible-based "bare metal" installation (which installs packages via apt alongside other server software) that this week we simply removed those instructions from our web site, leaving only the Docker instructions.

We're a team of 2 volunteers. We simply can't support every imaginable combination of server software. Docker helps us ship images that are exactly as we want, with everyone on the same page. It's just that simple!

Hello, friends!

I've been maintaining my project's Mastodon here on FOSStodon for a while (@azuracast), but I wanted to sign up for an account of my own so that I can answer questions directly, speak from my perspective rather than the project's, and make new friends in the greater software community. <3

Fosstodon

Fosstodon is an English speaking Mastodon instance that is open to anyone who is interested in technology; particularly free & open source software.
