Seafile - cloud storage platform

Not sure how Seafile compares to Syncthing on the backend but Seafile's user interface looks infinitely easier to use. It also has file sharing, web browser and iOS support.
Compared to Nextcloud, Seafile provides delta sync, which Nextcloud doesn't.
Docker image here:
See some discussion here - https://forum.cloudron.io/topic/2147/seafile-selfhosted
Meanwhile Seafile is v.8.0.7 and "Since version 8.0, Docker is the recommended way."
Deploy Seafile with Docker
Maybe you could take a look again?

I'd like to give this a go, since the only think we want from Nextcloud is the Files app.
We need local disc mounting, file-locking, and syncing only files that are used to save local disc space.

I have 3 Nextcloud instances for different projects, but as you say, I only really use the file store/share functionality. Seafile would be interesting and welcome alternative. I've installed it on a Caprover VPS, and it plays nicely, so would be great to have on Cloudron.
I'm not expert on cloudron self-packaging, but maybe someone more experienced can answer this : can we use a Caprover once-click app definition file as a base for a Cloudron custom package ? e.g. https://github.com/caprover/one-click-apps/blob/master/public/v4/apps/seafile.yml. Seems to do a lot of the initial work on packaging.

@timconsidine maybe if someone writes a guided caprover .yml -> manifest converter.
There are uniquenesses in Cloudron that don't apply in in caprover so those need to be accounted for to cover all bases, or manually added after some default conversion is spit out.
Not a bad project idea.. who's interested?
