Finally wrote up my thoughts on this whole "nobody wants to run a server from home":
Post doesn't cover everything but it comes down to this: there has to be a need, the UX has to be excellent for end-users, and it has to work well.
Not easy! Not impossible either.
Easyindie.app is nice. I like that I can look for an app then see how to host it.
Btw installing server apps via an interface is exactly what my project https://dropserver.org is about! (Though via a different approach than cloudron and the others) 👍
With dropserver I'd like to see people build lots of tiny apps, and have others fork and adapt them. The other projects seem to focus on hosting rather massive existing projects.
I think there is a whole world of small personal web services that is untapped.
