Looks OK, Rallly is the best alternative contender I've found: https://forum.cloudron.io/topic/3279/rallly-alternative-to-doodle
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?

I can see the principles applying to other industries too
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.
"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.
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.
We can sponsor the following for anyone wanting to get paid to package?
Need these to migrate over our current instances:
Need solutions for:
Looking at the current rate of App packaging and launch on Cloudron, I can only guess all this might take 5 years unless there's something I'm missing.
So many great Apps but I'm not getting any closer to app system consolidation without having a bunch of these. How can we speed this packaging process up?
Sorry, I'd love to learn and do but just can't neglect current duties right now. What I can do is divert a bit of budget if that helps.
If the community here is in a similar position, perhaps we can have a whip-round and contribute to recruiting for this?
I also have some seriously decent privacy-conscious client potential for all of this - but we have to dog-food anything before we can promote it.
Very happy with Cloudron - all features definitely going in a great direction - but how do we get more Apps into the Store faster? That App Request list is going up faster than down.

@drpaneas Yeah, I think ping times make more difference than bandwidth in most cases.
The rest sounds right but everyone has different routers and setups, so it's a case of try it and ask again here if anything doesn't work as there's a bunch of home-hosting experience around.
@drpaneas You're gonna love it, I'm sure! One-by-one I'm converting friends & family too
Yes, Hetzner has DDoS protection for the whole network, regardless of if you have a domain or naked IP.
I really don't like anything Amazon, and Digital Ocean is just very pricy and either throttled or lots of hidden extra costs.
Contabo is another option if you want even more bang for bucks but a slightly dated interface and a few less custom networking features without contacting their support. I have 9 VPSs with them though, and very happy with bang for bucks there too.
Seriously, you really don't need AWS & DO, try Hetzner, Contabo or Cloudron has a couple of other recommended partner hosts.
I use Cloudflare for DNS, which Cloudflare integration handles beautifully. I know some are suspicious of them but you don't have to use their DNS proxying and from what I read, they seem to be basing so much of their business model on privacy, I think their selling or backdooring any data wouldn't be worth it. I think Hetzner DNS integration is coming soon too though.
I use Wasabi for backups and happy with that. Someone recommended ODrive for replication of backups but I've not tried that yet.
My money is where my mouth is on those things, so happy to recommend.
I get where you're going, and I have Gigabit Fibre at home with 0ms ping times to London & Paris, so I could build a server farm at home at some point but, for now, most of my focus is on the apps because that's where the ultimate value is for me.
I've just found a few new things to help my Mac run faster & quieter, so update my blog post on this if it helps others:
Naturally, it's a Ghost blog hosting on Hetzner with Cloudron
@thetomester13 GitLab repo Pull mirroring is one possible solution.
I'm all for privacy but in many cases, where something has critical mass, the next best alternative for me is not to give them everything, just the absolute bare minimum, so they only have a fragment of a view of my total online footprint.
@drpaneas Cloudron handles Dynamic IPs, so you should be good there and not need the VPS
Personally, I recommend Hetzner instead of DO, many others here seem to be happy with it too. The smallest VPS Cloudron will run on is like €3/month, so it's almost worth having just as a playground.
I assume you mean the ability to login to multiple servers given the context? I believe element supports this. Mattermost does not sadly.
Yup, and stay logged in to get notifications from all servers and easily switch between the two.
For those that don't know, LoRaWAN is an IoT networking technology. The main features are:
The common use case would be to hook up to something like Prometheus or Influx time-series databases for recording measurements over time, then Grafana for charting time-series data, and NodeRED for reacting to measurements as required, perhaps with alerts or responses.
As you can see, we have 2 of the 4 components (Prometheus & Grafana) to make Cloudron a rapid IoT development platform stack.
I can think of many use-cases, the easier this is made, the more things people can come up with?
Then for businesses:
Hopefully that helps explain, and Chirpstack does seem to be the de-facto in this areas, as much as Prometheus, Grafana and NodeRED seem to be the de-facto apps in their areas.
Plus, this is another reason why Cloudron on Raspberry Pii etc is good, as it can give another use-case for off-grid servers that only have a need within a building or property but no need for the outside world to access.
