  • Piwigo

    Manage your photos with Piwigo, a full featured open source photo gallery application for the web. Star us on Github! More than 200 plugins and themes available. Join us and contribute!

  • I've been looking myself. What I have in my notes as the best option so far is tied between:

    - PhotoPrism - https://photoprism.app/

    - Piwigo - https://piwigo.org/

    PhotoPrism seems a lot more polished and has some face/location tagging that sounds useful (I make frequent use of the search feature in Google Photos and will likely miss that feature the most).

    While both have their own upload system internally, PhotoPrism has native integration with the PhotoSync (https://www.photosync-app.com/home.html) app for sycning, which seems promising.

    Piwigo has support for a few different sync methods, and extensions for more. ymmv.

  • davx5-ose

    DAVx⁵ is an open-source CalDAV/CardDAV suite and sync app for Android. You can also access your online files (WebDAV) with it.

  • Another vote for this option being a viable, and dare I say good, one. In addition to the CalDAV, contacts and email you can use davx5[0] on Android to help with syncing to your (root-not-required) Android device.

    This setup has worked well for me for a little under a year at this point.
