Self-host a password manager on OpenBSD

I’ve been using Rubywarden to store and access my passwords¬†from OpenBSD workstations and iOS toys. But recent redondant failures from the iOS App and rubywarden not being maintained anymore led to the need for a new solution.

So I decided to get myself a Raspberry Pi 4 and run everything from there.
