OliveTin gives safe and simple access to predefined shell commands from a web interface.

Use cases

Safely give access to commands, for less technical people

  • Give your family a button to systemctl restart jellyfin
  • Give junior admins a simple web form with dropdowns, to start your custom script like backupScript.sh --folder {{ customerName }}
  • Enable SSH access to the server for the next 20 mins firewall-cmd --add-service ssh --timeout 20m

Simplify complex commands, make them accessible and repeatable

  • Expose complex commands on touchscreen tablets stuck on walls around your house. wake-on-lan aa:bb:cc:11:22:33
  • Run long running on your servers from your cell phone. apt upgrade -y


  • Responsive, touch-friendly UI - great for tablets and mobile
  • Super simple config in YAML - because if it’s not YAML now-a-days, it’s not "cloud native" :-)
  • Dark mode - for those of you that roll that way.
  • Accessible - passes all the accessibility checks in Firefox, and issues with accessibility are taken seriously.
  • Container - available for quickly testing and getting it up and running, great for the selfhosted community.
  • Integrate with anything - OliveTin just runs Linux shell commands, so theoretially you could integrate with a bunch of stuff just by using curl, ping, etc. However, writing your own shell scripts is a reat way to extend OliveTin.
  • Lightweight on resources - uses only a few MB of RAM and barely any CPU. Written in Go, with a web interface written as a modern, responsive, Single Page App that uses the REST/gRPC API.
  • Good amount of unit tests and style checks - helps potential contributors be consistent, and helps with maintainability.
