Heimdall is a web-based portal page of task tiles representing a web app and/or links internal and external. Like a quick directory listing service, from which you can execute, launch or visit that content or web service. This eliminates the need to remember and bookmark all the microservices in your browser(s). It utilizes a streamlined interface that provides a single view with all of your installed micro services. The project team goal is to make it quick and easy to utilize your server for simple access.
