Form Designer/Hoster/Collector for LAMP
I need to create a number of forms along the line of an application form for a position. So not just a regular newsletter name/email signup. And I want the responses to be "in a system", not forwarded by email, so they are in one place.
I've installed LimeSurvey, but it's a beast, slow to design forms and massive over-kill.
As Cloudron doesn't yet support a lightweight Forms app (nudge nudge), does anyone have a recommendation for an opensource app that can installed in a Cloudron LAMP app ?

@timconsidine what's a good candidate app for lightweight forms?
KoboToolbox looks interesting but like OhMyForm, they favour Docker.
Embarrassingly my Docker knowledge & familiarity is poor. I must rectify that somehow.
I see someone has packaged OhMyForm but I am not sure how to go about installing an unofficial app (not from Cloudron).
@girish good question ! That's part of what I'm struggling with.
I was using https://formtools.org/ and was happy with core functionality, but while their website has been freshened, the UI for the app is very dated and a bit clumsy. So not sure I would recommend it.
Let me research a bit more, and see if I can suggest something.

The focus in on form building, and there are a ton of those around.
They seem to miss the form hosting & response collection.
Unless it is I who is missing something.
@timconsidine I've only used this plugin to create a simple product helper once but it might fit your needs since you can customize it any way you want. It's a paid plugin ($44 USD) on Envato: https://codecanyon.net/item/wp-cost-estimation-payment-forms-builder/7818230

Can you simply integrate LimeSurvey which we already have on Cloudron?
I installed Limesurvey but find it unusable.
It works. It's just ugly, slow, overly complex and totally over-spec'ed, useless import options.
I guess it's a good solution for some use cases. But not mine sadly.
Thanks for the other options. Will check them out.
I think I found my solution : Budibase ! (see App wishlist)
Will look into packaging it, but never done it, so don't hold your breath.
@girish surveyjs looks great.
It can certainly help with some projects/use cases.
But think I will pursue Budibase as the more complete design/host/collect responses solutions.
Got it working (easily after stupid error on my side) and will look at putting on a VPS. Would rather it is in Cloudron, but not sure I am competent enough to build it as custom app. Maybe will have a bash.
