BootBoi app

BootBoi is Connectivity application that is open source under the GPL-3.0-only license. Ever wanted to turn on your remote machine (laptop, Raspberry, NAS), but didn't want to leave the couch? Well I for sure understand this problem to the heart. But fear no more, as BootBoi is here to save you from the gruesome task of standing up and pushing a button. BootBoi features remote power on / power off / reboot for as many remote machines as you can imagine with the combined power of SSH and Wake On Lan. Preparing your Remote Machine * Before you can use BootBoi with your remote machines, you have to prepare them for **remote** rebooting and powering them on/off. Power On * To power a remote device on, BootBoi uses Wake On Lan. * This needs to be enabled in the BIOS of the machine you want to power on, read more here. Power Off / Reboot * BootBoi uses SSH to execute whoami, poweroff and reboot on the remote machine. * So make sure that * Those binaries are available and in $PATH * The SSH user has sudo access to whoami, poweroff and reboot * Either by allowing the user sudo access only to those binaries via the sudoers file (recommended) * E.g. `echo "my_ssh_user ALL=(ALL) /sbin/reboot,/sbin/poweroff,/usr/bin/whoami" >> /etc/local/sudoers` * Or by using root as SSH user in BootBoi
