  • Davis

    🗓 A simple, fully translatable admin interface for sabre/dav based on Symfony 5 and Bootstrap 5, initially inspired by Baïkal.

    For me the point is not privacy, simply this war is lost.

    The point for me is data availability, I do want to own my data. So for emails and service I do own my domain name, so I can change third parties services, if I use any (email) in a transparent manner for my correspondent. I own the domain, I own the mail address, my website URL etc, I have a "home address" on the net.

    Similarly I do use third party email services, simply because hosting one myself meaning ending up too often in GMail and co spam, BUT, I own my mails because I do not keep them on third party IMAPs but on my homeserver, the mail provider is just a relay of my "incomplete" mail infra.

    For contact I've used Radicale, now testing https://github.com/tchapi/davis

    For files I have a desktop centric setup, the homeserver run a paperless-ngx instance with "a certain set of docs" meaning I do not mirror my org-mode/org-attach entire home structure to paperless but only some selected docs to have them available on the go via mobile if I need them and simple webdav dir to share some if needed. I do not want OwnCloud considering it a monster I can't really know by it's mere size so I prefer giving up with it.

    I've tried Immich and Jellyfin for my photos and movies/music but they end up essentially unused.

    For RSS TT-RSS is far from perfect but can handle conveniently a significant number of posts quickly skimming them also on the go.

    Wireguard is nice enough to encapsulate my services

    To make it short, my point is not avoid a company like Google than choosing another like Proton, my point is being able to have and work with my data if some services disappear in a snap.
