Promnesia is a browser extension (Chrome/Firefox/Firefox mobile) that serves as a web surfing copilot by enhancing your browsing history, improving your web exploration experience, and integrating with your knowledge base.
Promnesia is a pretty neat idea that I've been eyeing for a while. The idea is to track your own browser history in more detail, including annotations, bookmarks, context, etc, and presenting it on each page as you browse.
The architecture is a browser extension as the primary UI, plus a server backend that typically runs locally.
I began packaging up this app with a custom Dockerfile (though the project does have its own dockerfile).
You can find the source at: https://source.infogulch.com/infogulch/promnesia-app though it is just barely running.
I have published the app package to my docker hub repo at
As for the cloudron integration, these are the steps that worked for me (I just got it working for the first time moments ago so...):
Install the server component with:
cloudron install -l subdomain --image infogulch/promnesia-app:v1.0.20210415-4

https://promnesia.my.example.com/statusendpoint displays a short JSON status (the app is not designed to be interacted with from the web)
Install the extension.
Go to extension options and set the "Backend source" url to your domain, (e.g.
It seems that logging into the app in the browser enables the extension to authenticate correctly. (This makes me want to critically review which extensions I have installed .)
