Not sure how it compares... but thought I would add it:
A Trello-like kanban board built with React and Redux.
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.

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:

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. "
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:

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

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?
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.
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
I thought people might be interested in this:
This is a Human Capital Management system. The system has an in-built free and open source onboarding software. The HCM software also comes preloaded with other important HR functions such as payroll data maintenance, employee details (History, Skills), travel expenses, resource booking, time and leave management, and so on. The software was the brainchild of a set of developers who’d understood the limitations of many functioning HR systems in the market. The latest version is 3.0.13.
Stumbled upon this and thought people might be interested.
Opensource and privacy focused
What is a Text Expander?
A text expander is a program that detects when you type a specific keyword and replaces it with something else. This is useful in many ways:
Save a lot of typing, expanding common sentences. Create system-wide code snippets. Execute custom scripts Use emojis like a pro.
Of course I am curious if folks are already using something like this.
@tamayers Very interesting. Thanks for sharing...
For those interested, here is what I was able to find on it.

@marcusquinn I am not sold on it, but I figured I would share it here for people to discuss. I am also interested in other options. I am particularly interested in interesting recruiting and onboarding apps.
Demo on site
I read they cater to small to medium businesses. Can run via a server or as a stand alone app on various platforms.
a fork of TinyERP (later called OpenERP)
Local install (English subtitles)
Just stumbled upon this and I figured I would see if anyone here had posted. And sure enough someone had! To add to the thread.... looks like someone created a docker for Mesh central.
Very cool to seeing Omeka on the horizon! This platform is used by many who need a turn key solution like Cloudron
Looks like it is built ontop of the whatsapp api.

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.

I stumbled up this today so I figured I would share it here as it can sync using nextcloud and that could prove useful for Cloudron users. You are able to format and view notes differently than joplin. I was impressed with Joplin's web clipper. Joplin's biggest asset is it has a huge following. There are alot of plugins being developed to broaden what you can do with it.
"A todo and task managing application, written in Qt and using QML for its UI. OpenTodoList is targeted at typical desktop environments (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X) as well as mobile devices such as Android phones."
This is a nice video walk through.
It looks like select whether each notwork is local or not. I am not sure if you can do that with joplin. Here is a link to the android app.
This project is pivoting for covid19. There is a live demo.
Is it possible to run loomio currently with cloudron? Last I checked it was not.
I am looking for is something like Odoo/Flectra (with all of the modules combined with Loomio and more video conferencing options.
Also interested in alternatives.
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.
@nebulon said in [....nearly all of those apps require a TURN/STUN server to work well across different networks. We are looking into providing coturn as an addon in Cloudron itself, once that is done, packaging those apps can happen properly to make them useful.]
I had Turn/STUN on my list of things to investigate. Having them included in cloudron would certainly be preferable.
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.
I found this interesting. Reminds me of anytype, shared in another thread.
In short it seems to allow one to save data to your personal machine, while using web applications.
Here is a video about the project ( though somewhat old) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGNJRyb5iJs
Current apps: https://wiki.remotestorage.io/Apps
I find Sharesome interesting
Traditional Web Apps
No-Backend Web Apps
Unhosted Web Apps
Own your data
Everything in one place – your place. Use a storage account with a provider you trust, or set up your own storage server. Move house whenever you want. It's your data.
Stay in sync
remoteStorage-enabled apps automatically sync your data across all of your devices, from desktop to tablet to smartphone, and maybe even your TV.
Compatibility & choice
Use the same data across different apps. Create a to-do list in one app, and track the time on your tasks in another one. Say goodbye to app-specific data silos.
Most remoteStorage-enabled apps come with first-class offline support. Use your apps offline on the go, and automatically sync when you're back online.
Another community learning platform. While it ahs "Open" in its name I have not found out if it is open source. I suspect not.
Open Education Practice
Clip- of the description: The move to open education practice (OEP) is more than a shift in content, it is an immersive experience in collaborative teaching and learning. OEP leverages open education resources (OER) to expand the role of educators, allowing teachers to become curators, curriculum designers, and content creators. In sharing teaching tools and strategies, educators network their strengths and improve the quality of education for their students.
With an open practice, educators are able to adjust their content, pedagogies, and approach based on their learners, without the limitations of “all rights reserved”.
@marcusquinn I see. I can imagine how keeping the file names and folder structure intact would allow you to use any program to manipulate the files.
Announced this past week:
Seems like it is in its early stages.
Thank you. Scripting is one of the things I see Trilium praised about. My understanding of scripting is minimal. But I understand enough to see how that could be a game changer. It is a matter of weather I would use the scripting. A few of the existing scripts might be useful enough for me to make the leap. But what about using it when away from my pc. I really need a way to bridge the phone and the pc with as little friction as possible. Being able to take notes while reading a report or reviewing a video or an audio file on my mobile phone would be extremely helpful.
Obsidian is pretty amazing. It is part of a broader evolution of knowledge management. I know a number of people who are using it and loving it. I have also heard good things about logseq and athens While plain text is future proof, it is difficult when working with video and audio files.
I discovered Codex I really like the freeform access it give to one's data- specifically multimedia. But I have not had a chance to look deeply into it. I suspect that there is a good chance it is not future proof.
@jdaviescoates A good idea. I think part of it is how easy it is to navigate while on a smartphone as well.
What an awesome find
However, this is a desktop application, and syncing happens through a config file that can be stored on the cloud, but needs no special server. So I don't know that this is something that can be packaged for Cloudron.
It looked like a good alternative to what I have used and I liked that it had sync. I posted it in the discussion area and not the app wish list area for the reasons you mentioned.
