Community Site Ideas
Anyone have any experience running a community site on Cloudron? I am looking to provide the tools for a community to collaborate and plan projects within the community. It would be great if there was the ability to co-learn and co-teach as well. Something that offers much of the utility of Odoo/Flectra but with the feel and openness of Loomio.
I would like people to be able to congregate in online in workgroups with access to tools (scheduling, documents, chat (voice and video), create small knowledge bases based on the work they are doing. Share the product of their effort with the broader community. Being able to stream would be great as well. Thoughts?
RE: moodleNet - open social media platform for educators
Been a while since I checked in with moodle. Did not know what moodlenet was. Found this walk through helpful
Also very curious about Moodlework (also new)
RE: Forms, Scheduling etc
Upon some investigating, did find a polls utility like doodle in nextcloud. It allows you to share it with users but also share a public link. Pols can be text based or created using a calendar. Persons responding can answer a yes,no and maybe on whatever options are offered.
RE: Community Site Ideas
Yeah, loomio is not packaged for Cloudron yet. About odoo, we had tried to package it in the past but it's really hard to deploy and maintain. Odoo is more like a "framework" on which things can be installed (i.e modules).
Love the word "yet" describing Loomio state- I am just learning more about what is out there that compares with loomio, but it has a really great feel.
I think what makes odoo so attractive is that it is a framework with modules. It makes total sense that strength would make it difficult. I do feel that it is likely more than I need.
@jdaviescoates Thanks for the tip about LDAP support in cloudron. I will look into it more. I will take a look at the links you shared. Thanks for a glimpse into how you are using cloudron. I certainly see the power of using Rocket chat, Nexctcloud and Wekan. I have considered the same- maybe using nextcloud decks or Open Projects Taiga instead of Wekan.
I have been leaning towards Rocketchat, with some sort of nextcloud integration. I read that nextcloud and rocket chat were partnering and that was excited. As you know from my other thread, video chat/conferencing/ webinar hosting is an important part of the equation. Before I jump in, I have been looking to see if there was an alternative, something like Decidim with a chat similar to rocketchat built in.
I am familiar with the concept of browser tabbed workspaces. I have experienced it working, however I have run into the issue that there is often a pull to the latest and greatest (new & shiny) workspace to add to the list of tool tabs and often those tools are not opensource, privacy conscious etc. I have a number of different workcase scenarios. Some personal, some have a close knit group working together on a project. Others are a groups of strangers coming together.
For some history, years ago oxwall's community ( https://developers.oxwall.com/ ) edition could be used to create a pretty dynamic community site. Oxwall does not seem to be as actively developed anymore. But at one point it was pretty amazing. It was a theme-able PHP social network with many plugins and integrations and a number of developers who would provide addons/themes through a marketplace. You could essentially make a site where each person had a profile, personal blog, and a file depository. The community site itself could have a forum, wiki, calendar, messaging, video chat, and file depository as well a feed people could share ideas/blog posts/videos. Groups could be created and used to work on projects, skill shares or on co-learning (often springing from an idea in the feed). Each group's space could have a forum, calendar, and file depository, a wiki and polling. It was similar enough to Facebook that most people knew what to look for to orient themselves and navigate. That being said, it was not a collaborative environment apart from the wiki and when people engaged in shared activities. It also suffered from not having a mobile app, and a less than responsive theme. Additionally, people could get lost and stuff could be lost. A group could not be archived without people going through the work to archive it.
I am interested in creating a community site with many of those same features, but with less "social" and more real time collaboration, open decision making build in.
RE: Notion-like FOSS app
My understanding is that anytype .io is similar to Notion. The developers say they plan to open source it after they release it.
It is built on IPFS. You can check out a video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hblHWfXA3XU
I have no affiliation. I just stumbled upon it and have been awaiting its release. If it lives up to the hype, I hope to somehow use it with cloudron
RE: Video chat and conferencing options
We usually use the hosted jitsi for our call but yesterday we gave a self-hosted BBB (not on Cloudron) a try. It was flawless. Now, just have to find out what it takes to get it into Cloudron.
Very cool. I am still on the fence about which one would be best. Jitsi seems to have alot going for it, but BBB seems much more robust. My sense is that BBB would require a more powerful server than Jitsi.

RE: Record submit and save to cloudron/nextcloud (or elswhere)
@seeker Is this any arbitrary website or a website that you made? It seems there is a cURL API to upload - https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/latest/user_manual/files/access_webdav.html#accessing-files-using-curl
This would be on a website I have access to/made. I Imagin it could also be a shared nextcloud folder with some sort of app providing the interface.
While this is a different use case, it does provide an example of what I am looking to do within nextcloud. I am also open to other possibilities using cloudron. This is using the canvaslms
Record submit and save to cloudron/nextcloud (or elswhere)
I am interested in a person being able to visit a webpage, and record a video or an audio message using their pc/smartphone's mic and camera and then after completing recording- save the recording to a nextcloud folder.
I discovered this thread.
It has some leads. Anyone have any idea how this might be achievable with cloudron? I am trying to avoid the person needing to record, save to their device and then upload if at all possible.
RE: Video chat and conferencing options
I wanted to follow up. I am thinking about seeing what I might be able to set up this weekend, using my cloudron setup. Much has changed with cloudron wigh @girish and @nebulon (and others) hard work updating Cloudron and getting TURN implemented. (Another thank you)
Much has also changed in the world with covid19.
I am curious what people are running- easily...????????
I am still looking for:
Single login (or as few as possible)
File sharing (similar to next cloud)
1 on 1 video chat ( single click would be nice to launch)
Group chat ( similar to google hangouts or zoom)
Screen sharing , white boards, ether pad integrated in video call
Sharing prerecorded video
Ability to create & join conference from smartphone
Recording web conference ( can use OBS)
Remote Desktop like teamviewer. Had not thought about this, but this would be amazing.
This is a pretty long list. What would be awesome is getting something off the ground like Zoom. @gish gave an excellent explanation of the hurdles creating a multi user video conference. So am I to assume that at this point selfhosting something like zoom is not really possible?
What have people had a chance to experiment with?
How many have people been able to create a group video chat with utilizing cloudron?
