Thanks for setting this up!

There's one minor catch though: both sites serve JavaScript that make
your browser fetch additional data from https://onionoo.thecthulhu.com/.

What we should do is create two new Apache configurations for the
hidden-service Atlas and Globe.  Those should not only serve static
content that contains JavaScript but also accept Onionoo requests and
forward them to the local Onionoo process on port 8080.  Then we can
serve modified Atlas and Globe versions that point to themselves for
Onionoo data.  I can imagine that it's also faster to have a single
hidden-service connection open and not create another circuit for the
data part.

I might be able to configure this, but I can't say when.

At least Compass won't have the previously described issues, because
it only makes requests to Onionoo once per hour in the background.

All the best,
