I can see the principles applying to other industries too
Joining this community and finding so much collaboration, I wonder if, when all the craziness settles, would people be interested in a meet-up?
I've always wanted to visit Berlin, and as much for a social gathering as geek-talk it could be something fun to work towards?
Not expecting some kind of big-effort conference but perhaps getting people together would be good for sharing ideas, getting to know the people behind the handles, and networking to see what else we might do with all this collective experience and enthusiasm.
Fun for 2021 anyone?
"Framadate is an online service for planning an appointment or making a decision quickly and easily. No registration is required.
Here is how it works:
Looks OK, Rallly is the best alternative contender I've found: https://forum.cloudron.io/topic/3279/rallly-alternative-to-doodle
"Open Source Document Management System for Digital Archives
Designed for scanned documents. Perfect software that will help you reduce paper clutter and keep your business organised."
The OCR looks decent and maybe better for personal use than MayanEDMS, which also looks excellent.
I can see it being a good pairing with Invoice Ninja / Firefly III.
"CryptPad.fr is the official instance of the open-source CryptPad project. It is administered by XWiki SAS, the employee-owned French company which created and maintains the product."
"CryptPad is a private-by-design alternative to popular office tools and cloud services. All the content stored on CryptPad is encrypted before being sent, which means nobody can access your data unless you give them the keys (not even us)."
"Attendize is an Open-source ticket selling and event management platform and is everything you need for a successful event. Attendize has a wide array of features aimed at making organising events as effortless as possible."
I'm thinking knowing this can help build the community and customers, that ultimately invest in a platform we all seem to enjoy. Likes & reviews on these places could help.
I'll start, quite an easy one and common I'm sure: https://alternativeto.net/software/cloudron/
Previously tried Cloudways, Runcloud, D2C.io, all pretty good - but Cloudron just spoke to me for the low entry point for personal use, large variety of apps we already use and were setup with more complex K8S and multi-server/provider setups.
Just made complete sense to consolidate a lot of that and optimise for single-server setups with a more accessible admin interface that didn't require high-level dev-ops in-house for the more common needs of any open-source-first and privacy-conscious people or team.
I try to @mention Cloudron regularly on Twitter too on comments on other large open source account tweets for a bit more interest from those likely to find the same satisfying time-saving I'm here for.
"GrapesJS is an open-source, multi-purpose, Web Builder Framework which combines different tools and features with the goal to help you (or users of your application) to build HTML templates without any knowledge of coding. It's a perfect solution to replace the common WYSIWYG editors, which are good for content editing but inappropriate for creating HTML structures. You can see it in action with the official demos, but using its API you're able to build your own editors."
Would pair nicely with Surfer & Mautic / Mailtrain
@nebulon I'm not too sure - it happened in a demo meeting, so I was panicked and rushing to move onto talk about other things, whiles simultaneously knowing that I'd just deactivated access to a load of apps to all other users during the working day, and also trying to fix live in that meeting while talking about other things. Mental gymnastics I assure!
I know it wasn't my imagination. I know that what happened was the inverse of what should have happened.
Frustratingly my days are dawn-to-bed intense on user needs, so documenting needs time is escaping me.
If you are happy with all that I have detailed above, that you could be confident to edit the Apps that a Group has access to, without anything unexpected happening, then you know the code behind it, I still can't explain any more what happened other than it definitely happened.
Perhaps someone else here knows or can also test. Sorry, I'm just spread too thin right now and even greater needs are demanding all attention
@nebulon I'm scared to try and reproduce it, but I was in
/#/users and start editing Groups, only to watch all the apps a user I was sitting with have everything disappear before our eyes.
Turned out that the ticks & unticks for Groups on that page were doing the inverse of what was expected. Tick hid apps and untick showed them. Suggests to me that somewhere in that code a
== should be a
!= or visa versa.
Nudge - frustratingly on this, our live production users are getting this message several times a day - the negative sentiment towards the systems grows every time.
I see this as an urgent issue because the time-costs of user push-back against new systems can be severe and swift.
I need to focus time on debugging the cause of the issues, but there is unnecessary extra overhead in diplomacy explaining that the system won't always be "going wrong" and that is ti a system in development, so it's not really wrong at all, it's actually being made better many times a day.
Are we waiting on a release for this update?
Negative sentiment weighs heavily when users can take opportunity to blame systems for things when they aren't alive throughout the day - and frustratingly I am battling an issue with an app in production that needs many restarts per day because or errors that are not showing in any logs anywhere.
