Self-hosting a Shadowsocks VPN with Outline

Outline is a suite of open-source software developed for journalists to safely access their network and the internet while traveling in countries where their activities may be monitored or censored. Despite this, the Outline platform is ideal for a wide range of users, especially less technical users, and users in censored countries like China who may have little to no knowledge about how VPNs or proxies work. Outline consists of two parts, the Outline Manager and Outline Clients. The Outline Manager is a tool you can use to easily setup remote Outline Servers on your own machines with very little technical skills. The Outline Clients in turn can connect to Outline Servers you configure, to keep your traffic secured.
