Remote control -Remote scripting- Scheduled Scripts - Integrated chat
How It Works
The Remotely client has two parts: the service and the remote control. The service is responsible for maintaining a persistent connection to the server and executing remote commands. The remote control is launched as needed for remote control sessions.
Both applications make outgoing websocket connections over secure SSL/TLS protocol. Because the connections are outgoing, you don't need to open any ports in your firewall, and the service won't accept any incoming connections.
The Remotely service will register with your Remotely organization ID, which is generated when you create your account or join an existing organization. On the first connection, the service generates a separate unique ID and sends it to the server. Upon each subsequent connection, the server must send back that ID before anything else, or else the service will uninstall itself immediately. This is an additional layer of security that ensures the service is communicating with the original server.
Users and computers are grouped into an organization, and they can't interact with resources outside their organization. Microsoft's Identity framework is used for all login and authentication to verify users.

to watch... Slack heavy..
"ChiefOnboarding is a free and open source employee onboarding platform. You can onboarding new hires through Slack or the dashboard."
This looks interesting
Built ontop of Mediawiki but for businesses
Your software for modern knowledge management.
Your company knowledge is a success factor in global competition. We help you to secure and organize this knowledge and to further develop it collaboratively.
Not sure how this compares, but it has a nice video learning and video commenting module that could be very useful.
"EGroupware offers an online calendar for appointment management, contact management with CRM, tasks, emails and project management, as well as an online file server..... supplemented by the integration of chat, video conferencing and remote desktop modules to create a sophisticated home office solution."
What looked particularly interesting is the:
" Video-based learning with smallPART
smallPART is an application where you can learn directly “in the video”. Pupils or students can ask questions or give feedback directly in the video. Marking in the image is also possible without any effort.
Use recordings from online lessons for structured video-based learning.
New: Integration of single, multiple and open questions for tests and exams"
There are two videos about it here (in German) :
Posting here so it is in the Wishlist library. Not sure how it compares to others.
Thought people might be interested in this. I would be itnerested in similar projects.
"Break out of the box
Traditional "grid of faces" teleconferencing is designed for presentations, not conversations. The presentation and audio processing prioritize one speaker over all others. All participant voices sound like they are coming from the same, disembodied location. Everyone is lined up in a rigid grid, like you're facing down a tribunal interrogation. "
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:
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
@girish and all, Thanks fr all the hard work!
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)
Thought I would add this here. As many who use Joplin are using it to replace Evernote which has OCR. This looked like a way of getting some ocr capabilities with joplin. In Markdown as well.
The text below is taken from the thread linked above:
"I built a command line companion application to supplement Joplin. The app monitors a directory you specify; when new files are created in the directory, it automatically uploads the file as text or an attachment (depending on file type) to a new note in Joplin. The app performs OCR on images and PDFs, and the text is dropped into the note as a comment. An image preview is also created for PDFs. The app requires Python 3.7 and is available on Github 371 and PyPI 38. Hope you like it!"
Interesting... Labeling substreams with topics seems interesting to me. Tags can get confusing. Having used email, I think people would be able to use topics as they are closer to email subject headings.
A couple of videos about Zulip:
Introduction from a teacher using it with students
CEO of Zulip – Tim Abbott (INTERVIEWED)
Wow this would be pretty cool. At one point it had a thunderbird extension. But it looks like it suffered from Mozilla's moved to web-extensions
Looks interesting. Has anyone played with it outside of cloudron? It is on product hunt today https://www.producthunt.com/posts/twake-2-0

Had never heard of this. Has been around and actively developed for the past 6 years. Seems similar to Oodo.
Open source. But extensions cost $250
Available in PHP but there is a beta docker available that came out earlier this year.

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?
@will Yeah, I agree. I have been waiting for their beta. As for another possibility- there is also Tiddlywiki. Years ago the hurdle was collaboration. I wonder if they have solved that with a plugin or something
