PicApport is a photo server with web gallery for your intranet, web space or home network that allows you to organize photos, videos, PDF's, and many other mediatypes in a central location. Share, tag photos fully automatically with the integrated AI, edit metadata and find your photos in no time thanks to the intelligent search functions, the world map and much more.

Given the current state/ incompatibility of Photoprism with Cloudron, I was wondering if there would be any interest in PicApport? Looks great with photo, video and other media support and mobile apps for access.
Thanks for the suggestion
Please correct me if I am wrong but I do not think PicApport is open source, or is it?
Not that I am opposed to the idea, on the contrary as I think Cloudron could do with a better photo/video management app (other than Lychee).
Yet accessible source is still, in my opinion, a massive point for the integration of an app on Cloudron over another. Which is why, at this stage, my preference would go for something like Piwigo as an alternative (to Lychee / Photoprism - if still not integrable).
Of course, the above is moot if PicApport is indeed open source and I simply did not find it.
Also, the mention "Free for private users" on their website (they also mention to contact them for using the app as a company) makes me think that PicApport might not be suitable to the extend of use-cases that Cloudron is being used with. Other Cloudron users here might also have better insight.

@Neiluj very valid points! +1 for Piwigo as well.
I scoured through their documentation to see what is written about data privacy. They do say that no data is sent over in a couple of places and their intention is not to make money but provide a platform for private use, etc. The AI is also done on the device as far as I understand. You are right, I don't think the code itself is opensource though.
This app is really feature rich. However, my first preference is Photoprism as well. May be others can add their views here...
