  • Google Timeline alternative? | 2021-10-14
    Not a drop-in replacement, but if you host photos on your Nextcloud server, and use Les Pas to manage your album, combined with Wallpaper app Muzei, photo you shot at exact the date in the past will show up as your Android phone's wallpaper.
  • I need to get away from google, I’ve got a google cloud & google docs with tons of stuff stored on it. I need a cloud that is encrypted with the highest level encryption, that I can use like I use google docs(PWA),& a cloud that I can torrent with.

  • Business models of Free and Open Source software | 2021-10-08
    Software as a Service (SaaS) define software used in the cloud rather than on the user computer, Internet democratization facilitating this usage. Source code is released allowing open source benefits, and users are paying to save the pain of self-hosting. Services providing data storage or needing continuous uptime are well suited. The project himself, the organization behind can propose it like MongoDB or any companies can become a provider like for the case of Nextcloud.
  • Software developer looking for a customer centric open source product to contribute to.
    You could join the Nextcloud community :)
  • Can't login to NC via Android App | 2021-10-04
    Thanks for the hint, just stumbled across the same info here a moment ago. Will give it a try.
  • Looming for a cloud based online storage back up service that has unlimited storage? | 2021-09-30
    You should definitely look into Nextcloud. You can either pay for a provider to host your account/data or build your own server running in a VM or an external Nextcloud compatible device. I personally would use this but I am extremely bloody dense on how to set it up lol. And yes, it supports beyond Windows, Android, Mac and Linux (and more I believe).
  • Suggestion: Syncthing & OwnCloud/NextCloud integration. | 2021-09-30
    Syncthing ( and Nextcloud ( come to mind. Syncthing would be awesome as it can work without a central server.

  • How to build an intranet?

  • Is there any open-source software similar to Backup and Sync from Google? Some functionalities have been discontinued in the new Google Drive for Desktop...
    Not entirely sure if it will fit your use-case, but Syncthing and NextCloud are both free and open source. Syncthing is lighter (but great for syncing folders between devices) whereas NextCloud is a more conventional cloud that you can choose to host yourself. I run the former on a pi, and there are all sorts of plugins and apps people have made for both.

  • Why is using your own DNS resolver important?
    It's fun. This isn't directly a privacy-related selling point, but I speak from experience when I say that the rabbit hole that is r/homelab, r/selfhosted, r/homeserver, etc. is a fantastic one, and selfhosted DNS is often a great starting point for many. It starts with hosting your own DNS, then your own NTP server, then your own personal 'cloud', etc. etc. Step by step you'll be able to reduce the amount of dependency you have on third-party software which in turn allows you more control, and privacy, over your data
