Introducing Cockpit

Gave a talk at DevConf in Brno about the project a bunch of us have been working on: Cockpit. It's a UI for Linux Servers. Currently in the prototype stage...

Hopefully there'll be a video of the talk available soon. You can try out the Cockpit prototype in Fedora like so:

 # yum install --enablerepo=updates-testing cockpit
 # setenforce 0 # issue 200
 # systemctl enable cockpit-ws.socket
 $ xdg-open http://localhost:21064

Don't run this on a system you care about (yet). Sorry about the certificate warning. Groan ... I know ... working on that.

Needless to say I'm excited about where this is going...


  1. I'm really looking forward how Cockpit will develop in the future. Is there any roadmap or any feature list with things you are going to include?

  2. If you're using cockpit-0.4 you'll want to use the following command instead:

    # systemctl enable cockpit.socket

    We've renamed stuff to have a bit simpler naming.
