Calendar Applications Review
There is a large cohort of new (proprietary) calendar applications coming forward in 2022. They look slick. Hopefully we can find a beautiful, Free alternative for Cloudron.
There is a succinct and pretty review here:
Some users said Vimcal was the best
What do you think? Could Cloudron host Lightning calendar, for example?

It depends if you’re wanting a browser-based calendar app or not, I suppose. Some of the ones you linked to are just a GUI for admins of a server (such as Sabre’s Baikal) and doesn’t actually provide a calendar user interface at all.
Personally I’d rather use client-side apps over browser-based apps when possible, and hook them up to a CalDAV server like Radicale or Baikal.
With that said, for my customers using Roundcube for webmail, I have been exploring the idea of a calendar add-on there that can integrate using the CalDAV standard too which kind of allows users to have the best of both worlds.
What I have in mind is like a public calendar/schedule, for example, one for the President.
People could subscribe to it, if schedules changed, they would be pushed from the calendar to subscribers. You could also see the Vice President's schedule alongside it.
