I would recommend to post suggestions for new apps at the app-wishlist. This thread is just to announce what comes next.

RE: Bookstack bypass External Authentication ID
@Enabl-ist Can't you just add a new user to the bookstack user list?
Nope. Needs external auth id to map to LDAP user.
@Enabl-ist what about a Cloudron user group "wiki" that only gives you rights for the Bookstack app? Than create a user (external client) and give him the wiki group.
I created a group "intern" which has access to all apps. Than I have a group "extern" with only some apps. If you have no group, you see no app. You can log in to cloudron but thats it. This could solve your problem but still needs some administration and changes to exisiting users and groups.
RE: Tellform - open source alternative to Typeform
Their github page says:
DEPRECATION WARNING UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. There are many oudated and vulnerable dependencies within this project and I recommend that you use this code repository for internal testing and development only. There were too many impassable hurdles to really continue forward at the pace that I was hoping with TellForm @leopere~ If you want to follow my progress on an alternative in the mean time check out https://OhMyForm.com or our Discord server. We managed to get the base Docker image fixed before forking the code so you can give this a try however not much has changed at the moment.
....so it seems pretty dead to me. Have a look at https://ohmyform.com/ for a fork. They are far away from a stable 1.0.0 release but the project looks very promising. Besides, I can not think of a good open source alternative so this would be very nice to have.
RE: Frequent mail bounces / "Message delivery failure notice"
Seems to be Microsofts fault. They don't ban single IP's but whole IP networks. The forum of my server provider is filled up with complaints about blocked mails. Since there is nothing TODO and cloudron works fine, I'll mark this thread as resolved.
RE: Frequent mail bounces / "Message delivery failure notice"
550 5.7.1 Reject for policy reason
Have you checked if you are on any blacklists? https://mxtoolbox.com will be helpful to check a good chunk of them (almost 100!)
Yes I regularly check against an DNSBL. Additionally, Cloudron has it's own blacklist check integrated.
@nebulon It's a Root with we rented half year ago. I delisted my domain multiple times so this does not work for us. You think it's only IP/Network related? I was thinking about entire network address ranges at netcup having bad reputation
I requested access to microsofts SNDS to check the reputation of my IP/domain. So far no good solution in sight...
Frequent mail bounces / "Message delivery failure notice"
Lately I got a lot of reports from my users about bouncing mails. We do not send Newsletters/Mass mails or something similar. Most of them are from Outlook.com and some from web.de and arcor.com. The reason is always Error 550 5.7.1 Reject for policy reason.
Our mailserver was never blacklisted and runs perfectly fine but the error reports say something like:
Please contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our block list (S3150).
Is it really because the network of my server provider (Netcup) is kinda blacklisted? I've been thinking since DKIM etc it's a bit safer....or is it really the price you pay if you host your own email server? The message content is plain text, no attachments and sometimes some URL's and telephone numbers...normal content for a mail. I can't help myself and the only solutions seems to use an external SMTP provider. I don't think it's the fault of Cloudron/Haraka but I would still like to consider all advices and solutions.
RE: Where shall I host my Nextcloud Server?
For "non expert with focus on security" there is no straight answer. The easiest way is to grab a hosted Nextcloud from one of the many providers. Since you can encrypt your data, this should be no problem.
The second option is to get a VPS/Root and Install Nextcloud. There are good offers at Netcup (2,69 for a small VPS) and they have OS images with preinstalled Nextcloud. Remember that If you run your own server you are always responsible for everything. One step harder is to get a clean OS and install something like Cloudron to host Nextcloud. If you just want Nextcloud for yourself and nothing else, Cloudron is a bit oversized.
The third option is to keep everything at home. You can install Cloudron + Nextcloud on your Homeserver. You can also buy something like a Synology Diskstation (NAS) and install Nextcloud and a VPN server (included in the Diskstation App software bundle). For home NAS + Nextcloud, a VPN is strongly recommended. With a VPN you are pretty safe but your access is limited and it's not hassle free.
RE: ERPNext - cost-effective ERP solution
They have a official Docker Build but it seems not to be suitable for production as they quote:
These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes. Unfortunately, this container is not curently suited for a production environment (but we're working towards that goal!).
I would love to have ERPNext on Cloudron since EspoCRM just covers a couple use cases and Monica lacks crucial features like sync with CardDAV + it's development stagnates (mobile app, features they've been working on for ages).
RE: How to publish code changes from a Git repository to a Ghost install managed by Cloudron?
Okay first you can easily host many different Ghost instances on cloudron and use them as dev/test/stage/prod. Cloudron (Premium plan) has Gitlab as app, so you can create your own CI pipeline to deploy your themes. Since the rest of your questions do not really have to do with cloudron I would suggest you this link: https://jamesfacts.com/building-a-continuous-integration-pipeline-for-your-ghost-theme/
RE: Does Cloudron take up 20GB disk space?
I have 16GB RAM, 60GB SSD storage (Netcup RS 2000 G8 SSD) and use the preconfigured ubuntu+cloudron image from netcup. I have 10 Apps installed and around 10GB of userdate. Together with app swap, cloudron consumes 33GB disk in total. Im pretty comfortable with the 26GB left but I still worry about nextloud and email data pile up over time.
I also noticed that cloudron is bad when it comes to pruning/purging of old/unused docker data. I had to delete some images from apps that I tested a while ago. It safed not much but (fast) storage is not always cheap. I have another vroot (Linux V40) at Strato with similar CPU/RAM that comes with 600GB of SSD (for an reasonable price) but this one is very noticable slower (Collabora is almost unusable). All in all, the storage usage of cloudron is pretty okay and you hardly have to worry about it.
