I live in computer land, design web software and love using well designed software!
Superdesk is an open source end-to-end news creation, production, curation, distribution and publishing platform developed and maintained by Sourcefabric with the sole purpose of making the best possible software for journalism. It is scaleable to suit news organisations of any size.
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.
"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.
Hey, big fan of what you're doing here!
Is anyone interested in sponsored App creation?
As a business, we can budget for this as a reasonable expense and happy to contribute to both the creator and the community with helping fund these things.
Provide a one time "Update" subscription/service
Anything that encourages people to run outdated software for free sounds like a nightmare and irresponsible to me.
Sorry, but none of this makes any sense.
People pay $10/month for music and video subscription services where they never own the data.
$15/month for what can replace many other paid services is a time-waster filter in my opinion.
Decent System Admins are in the $50-250/hour range. I seriously think Cloudron is too cheap sometimes.
As far as I'm concerned the current pricing is very generous and accommodating for my needs.
I feel it is up to us as the larger network of experienced experts to champion the cause on other chatrooms, forums, social media and business contacts as to how happy we are with Cloudron and what great value it is.
Attracting more developers to app packaging also keeps increasing the value.
I'm trying to get some higher ticket clients onto it, that can then sponsor more of the enterprise types apps.
Maybe if we focus on getting more higher paying subscribes, that will create the economies of scale for a lower pricing on a home tier.
I hate limitations on software - but completely respect paying for luxury add-ons, security not being a luxury.
@atrilahiji Yeah, it's a compromise step I feel. Secure enough to be better than ad-tech's conflicts of interest, but still aware that the metadata for who's chatting with whom and when still has some potential value that one wouldn't want to share if given an assured choice.
Matrix I love the ideals and successes of. Element seems the best of the bunch. So for this audience, certainly the best we have.
For my entire social circle, well I can't see it happening but would be happy to see otherwise.
I guess the original point of the post was non-Cloudron specific, and potential for mass-market.
I guess we have to wait and see what Elon Musk shills next if Signal's MOB payments sour the new kid capturing mindshare.
@atrilahiji Moral hypothetical; mental health is an issue, I think we can agree on that?
How do we reconcile having capabilities to improve user experience and adoption, against having people we care about unnecessarily unhealthy in mind because they "sold their soul", or more likely it was bought and sold for them?
@atrilahiji The family reeeeeeallly resisted the push to Signal for months, these are people that care, and I care about, but the "why should I?" brainwashing runs deeper than personal and relationships nowadays.
That's the power of user experience and trust in exchanging effort for that.
For business and professionals, sure, we have some influence, but for personal, I'm afraid the user statistics speak for themselves.
@imc67 DM me if you're interested to follow what I'm doing with it, been working with it for a solid 3 months now, and although it'll be a while before I can publish what I'm working on, happy to share privately.
Are you a power user, or also a coder by any chance? We're working on a fair few core improvements too.
I think any app requiring a central server will remain niche.
Signal took a long time to persuade people to switch with very low signup friction.
User experience is as fundamental to security as shoes are on gravel.
If the experience doesn’t factor-in user onboarding time & friction, then it becomes a security issue in itself, by discouraging critical-mass adoption to be more useful than the ad-tech alternatives.
Looks like Signal App's addition of payments using MobileCoin ($MOB) has struck a raw nerve with many.
Another alternative that seems to come up regularly on the comments underneath their Tweets is this Session App:
YMMV but another one for the list and your esteemed critique.
@nebulon Nice. If it's a button now, rather than a drop-down, that makes more sense to use an icon representing the destination.
Personally, I'd prefer the single-cog icon here and for the Service menus, if you'd consider that?
Create Stunning Presentations on the Web
reveal.js is an open source HTML presentation framework. It's a tool that enables anyone with a web browser to create fully-featured and beautiful presentations for free.
The framework comes with a broad range of features including nested slides, Markdown support, Auto-Animate, PDF export, speaker notes, LaTeX support and syntax highlighted code.
It seems like this could work for anyone wanting to test in the LAMP app.
