Testing Dashy

Trying out a new dashboard for all the things in the homelab.
I have been using Heimdall for the longest time, and wanted to test out Dashy
Followed the quick start guide and used the docker compose file to create the container on one of my portainer servers.

# Welcome to Dashy! To get started, run `docker compose up -d`
# You can configure your container here, by modifying this file
version: "3.8"
    container_name: Dashy

    # Pull latest image from DockerHub
    image: lissy93/dashy

    # To build from source, replace 'image: lissy93/dashy' with 'build: .'
    # build: .

    # Or, to use a Dockerfile for your archtecture, uncomment the following
    # context: .
    # dockerfile: ./docker/Dockerfile-arm32v7

    # You can also use an image with a different tag, or pull from a different registry, e.g:
    # image: ghcr.io/lissy93/dashy or image: lissy93/dashy:arm64v8

    # Pass in your config file below, by specifying the path on your host machine
      - /home/USERNAME/dashy/public/conf.yml:/app/public/conf.yml
      - /home/USERNAME/dashy/icons:/app/public/item-icons

    # Set port that web service will be served on. Keep container port as 80
      - 4000:80

    # Set any environmental variables
      - NODE_ENV=production
    # Specify your user ID and group ID. You can find this by running `id -u` and `id -g`
      - UID=1000
      - GID=1000

    # Specify restart policy
    restart: unless-stopped

    # Configure healthchecks
      test: ['CMD', 'node', '/app/services/healthcheck']
      interval: 1m30s
      timeout: 10s
      retries: 3
      start_period: 40s

Ran into some issues where the container was trying to create the config file as a directory, but managed to get that sorted by creating the `conf.yml` file and copying over the example

Managed to get it running and started populating it with some widgets and stuff running in the homelab
