  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Rocket.Chat

    The communications platform that puts data protection first.

    At one point I seriously considered self-hosting a Rocket Chat [1] instance for very similar reasons. It seems to have a good balance of features, moderation controls, and polish while still being pretty straight-forward to host.

    The main challenge I ran into was, of course, convincing folks to use it (instead of the "easier" forms of communication that they already had....).

  • jami-cli

    Jami client for terminal

    Jami (https://jami.net/) has the advantage of keeping your child's communication private and lacks the ability to find outside groups (like phone calls), while having the features they would want to have to interact and being multi-platform.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!
