    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!

  • PostHog

    🦔 PostHog provides open-source product analytics that you can self-host.

    Posthog[1] is an excellent alternative to Google Analytics that should be in that list.

  • ONLYOFFICE

    ONLYOFFICE Document Server is an online office suite comprising viewers and editors for texts, spreadsheets and presentations, fully compatible with Office Open XML formats: .docx, .xlsx, .pptx and enabling collaborative editing in real time.

    I'm surprised office software are not mentioned. To Google Docs Editors / Office 365, an alternative could be ONLYOFFICE. Their word processor, spreadsheet etc work both online and as desktop software, high compatibility with MS formats, and they have a free personal tier and also business plans. I'm not affiliated, just a happy user. And they're EU based!
