    ⛴ Docker image of Nextcloud (by nextcloud)

    With regard to containerisation, there is a Nextcloud container image available. Docker was originally intended more for deployment of third-party software than your own software, so Nextcloud is almost a perfect example to get started with. As you can see in the list of image tags on Docker Hub, the Nextcloud team builds both an nginx with php-fpm container and an Apache with mod_php container. The container images include the webserver with them, meaning you can just deploy the container and get a working web service right away.

  • Portainer

    Making Docker and Kubernetes management easy.

    Portainer is written in Go rather than PHP – see the "Languages" section on the right on GitHub. The job of interpreting HTTP requests in Go applications is handled by the standard library of the language, more specifically the net/http package. This means Go applications do not usually have a hard dependency on an HTTP server sitting in front of them, although they will often be deployed behind a proxy for benefits like load balancing, TLS termination, and caching.

  • 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!
