Mobilizon - A free and federated tool to get our events off Facebook!
From the great people at Framasoft

It's still early days, should probably wait until V1, but just wanted to get this here as a reminder to keep an eye on it.
Who is building/ running a business on top of Cloudron? What's your model? :)
I love Cloudron and I love open source apps. I want more people to use them. I'm thinking of offering Cloudron-based services to people, but still thinking about how I could best do that...
What I'd really like to be able to do is to offer groups access to an affordable suite of their own self-hosted apps for collaboration.
I'm thinking of starting with
- Nextcloud (+ OnlyOffice), and
(given that the most widely used business/ collaboration tools are Slack, G Suite and Trello according to StackShare.io).
However, I think in order to really make this a viable an attractive option to groups just starting up I think perhaps the Cloudron pricing model would need to change.
Anyways, I'm really interested in what others are doing. Are you selling services on top of Cloudron? How are you doing it? How do you work out your pricing etc?
@yusf I've seen you mention that you run numerous Cloudron servers and have various clients - are these paying clients? Please share!
(another related question to @girish and @nebulon is how stable/ financially sustainable is Cloudron at present? Obviously I don't want to go ahead and build something on top of a service which may potentially die or be taken over by Vulture Capitalists! )
moodleNet - open social media platform for educators
It's basically an ActivityPub based federated social network.
A new open social media platform for educators, initially focused on the collaborative curation of collections of open resources. MoodleNet will be an integral part of the Moodle ecosystem, sustainably empowering communities of educators to share and learn from each other to improve the quality of education.
Set up your own MoodleNet instance
MoodleNet is Free and Open Source Software (under the AGPL licence) which can federate with other instances of MoodleNet and other compatible ActivityPub servers. You are encouraged to run an instance yourself, to increase the diversity and resiliency of the federated network.
Although perhaps we should wait until v1.0 realse. This recent (March 2020) slide deck overview says that's coming soon... (see slide 46)
RE: Nextcloud Hub/18
I note that on https://apps.nextcloud.com/apps/documentserver_community it states:
The community document server is designed to make it easy to get OnlyOffice running in a Nextcloud instance without the need to setup an external document server, the community document server does not support all features of the official OnlyOffice document server and does not provide the same performance and scalability. (bold added)
And I'm guessing that the Cloudron app at https://cloudron.io/store/com.onlyoffice.coudronapp.html installs the full version? Is that right @nebulon @girish ?
So the method described by @gloes (thanks!) works, but perhaps does not have as the same features, performance and scalability?
So the current method of installing both Nextcloud and ONLYOFFICE Cloudron apps may still be best?
RE: n8n.io - Zappier, IFTTT, Integromat alternative
I am not even sure if we are 'allowed' to package it for Cloudron
It sounds to me like you probably are allowed to do so:
May I create, distribute, offer as SaaS, and/or “sell” my products using Commons Clause licensed components?
Commons Clause only forbids you from “selling” the Commons Clause software itself. You may develop on top of Commons Clause licensed software (adding applications, tools, utilities or plug-ins) and you may embed and redistribute Commons Clause software in a larger product, and you may distribute and even “sell” (which includes offering as a commercial SaaS service) your product.
RE: Mailpile e-mail client
Having just played with all the existing email options (including Nextcloud Mail) I'd really like Mailpile to be available as none of the others come close to comparing to Gmail (e.g. on a basic level they all seem to lack label/ tag based folders, which it would appear is how things are done in Mailpile... although it still doesn't work very well in their demo so I guess it's not yet ready for prime time).

RE: Chatwoot - Simple and elegant live chat software
I have gotten my cloudron instance up and will be working on packing chatwoot over this weekend.
This is great, many thanks @sojan_official !
RE: Change installed app from the current app panel
@scooke I don't understand why you don't just use new sub domains for each new app your want to play with?
RE: Wordpress (unmanaged) doesn't send any emails.
@vova also, check your spam folder
Tutanota - Secure email for everybody
This looks like a good option for those concerned with encryption.
I'm mostly just adding this as imho every single open source webmail client in existence leaves a LOT to be desired
And so the more options we get to play with to find the best fit for our needs, the better:
I quite like the look of this and given how under developed every single open source webmail client it it'd be nice to have as many options to try out as possible.
RE: Which email and contact management app for Cloudron?
I note RainLoop is also the most recommended here:
But really, imho, all the existing self-hostable open source options for webmail leave A LOT to be desired. Nothing comes even remotely close to Gmail
RE: Cloudron LDAP access for external apps?
@YurkshireLad personally I don't need it yet, but it'd be nice to have.
I've only been playing around with/ using Cloudron since January but I totally love it so far, and I've been really impressed with how responsive the developers are; they respond promptly, fix bugs quickly and add new features at an amazing rate.
