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: Corteza: the Digital Work Platform for Humanity
@tamayers Very interesting. Thanks for sharing...
For those interested, here is what I was able to find on it.

Messaging looks integrating. There is an android app???
Voluntarily a platform to connect volunteers with persons in the community
This project is pivoting for covid19. There is a live demo.
RE: Community Site Ideas
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.
RE: Voluntarily a platform to connect volunteers with persons in the community
Also interested in alternatives.
RE: Video chat and conferencing options
@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.
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

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.
