The Hub is a web-based interface to a lot of otherwise difficult to control hackerspace entities. It is maintained on a personal server by User:Bloemist. The code is not open-source (sorry) because security and 80% of it is system-specific configuration. People who want to add functionality can always contact User:Bloemist.

There were a few guidelines for The Hub:

  • it does nothing really in itself, just some sort of user-friendly api
  • it also shows a bunch of space-related stats & graphs
  • The Hub is non-essential. If it were to disappear nothing else would stop working

Inner Workings

The Hub runs on 2 machines. If you access it from outside the space a VPS serves the 'remote' version. If accessed from the 0x20 network it serves a local version on a pi in the backroom. This is to make sure some things are separated as well as a slightly different way of connecting to devices.


Register your account on the hub (only works in the space) and contact bloemist to give you the neccesary permissions.


Spacebot is a user in our Mattermost server that relays some of the information on The Hub to the Mattermost channels. It is very much WIP, so dont be too demanding ;)
