I propose to take in Netdisco - An open source web-based network management tool.

Project/Source here:

Demo page here: https://netdisco2-demo.herokuapp.com/

In my opinion it's better than the community version of Observium especially because it has that RESTful API https://netdisco2-demo.herokuapp.com/swagger-ui/?url=/swagger.json builtin.

It looks like an interesting project and appears to have minimal dependencies.

Is this a proposal that you are considering working on? Or a request for us to develop it?

If it's the former, then awesome! It appears to be written in Perl, so (assuming it works with a MySQL/MariaDB backend) starting from our LAMP appliance is probably as good a place as any (or LAPP if it needs PostgreSQL). If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

If it's the latter, then that's fine too. Although please don't hold your breath! Currently it feels like I'm running flat out just to go backwards... (I'm being hyperbolic, but that's certainly how it feels lately). Regardless, I have no idea when I might be able to develop any new appliances (and there is already a backlog of requests).

I suggested you develop it, BUT I am going to install and configure it on a plain vanilla Debian VM anyway, so I can help. 

In fact, I have not much experience how to do a TKL appliance, but I have enough LAPP know how. Will do notes during the installation and post that recipe here.
