New Apps! vnStat, Ajaxterm and LinPHA

After another round of awesome testing by the Testing Team we are proud to announce the release of new applications for Amahi.

We have a bandwidth monitor app, just in case you want to keep tabs on your internet download cap to keep in check, a nice web-based secure shell (SSH) terminal and a good looking photo gallery app.

Read on for more!

vnStat is a tool which is simple to setup and capable of monitoring your incoming and outgoing bandwidth usage. The default port monitored is eth0, however this may be changed manually.

The output allows you to see the bandwidth you’ve used in a variety of ways, such as by hour, by day, etc. Also, as a bonus it doesn’t require the use of root privileges once it has been installed.

Ajaxterm is a web based ssh terminal emulator. It was totally inspired and works almost exactly like Anyterm

Ajaxterm is written in python (and some AJAX javascript for the client side) and depends only on python2.3 or better.

Ajaxterm provides a quick way to access the command line interface on your HDA. No more opening putty or a command prompt, it will all be contained in the browser!

One word of caution is that you should set up https for this app to be fully secure.

LinPHA is an easy to use, multilingual, flexible photo/image archive/album/gallery written in PHP. It uses a MySQL database to store information about your pictures. It’s available as a one-click install, so you don’t even have to run the web-based installer.

This photo gallery application generates thumbnail images on the fly and stores statistical data about images and comments from visitors in a MySQL database.

Many thanks to all the contributors and testers for all your hard work creating and testing apps!
