Jitsi Meet - Secure, Simple and Scalable Video Conferences that you use as a standalone app or embed in your web application.Project mention: Cohort IDs can be collected over time to create cross-site tracking IDs | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-15
There could actually be technical reasons behind it, for example Jitsi had this bug open for quite a while: https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/issues/4758 referring a few Firefox bugs - apparently mostly fixed by updates to Firefox; perhaps the vendors of your the web app you used didn't get the news yet.

Mithril is pretty great, they're big lovers of it over at https://flarum.org/. I love being able to use it with JSX without all the complexities of React.

I've been running mailinabox: https://mailinabox.email/ ... for at least 5 years for 7 domains, about 15 active users (plus a couple of dozen "system" accounts) on the smallest Digital Ocean droplet and have zero complaints.
Self-hosted chat app for small teamsProject mention: Looking for a good, compatible, simple to host chat program. | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2021-03-12
If Let's Chat used PHP and MySQL, it'd be perfect, but it uses MongoDB, which I can't use, and even if I could use it, I don't know how I'd configure it.

Mailpile.is comes to mind. Their Twitter account is inactive since 2018, but they did fix some things on Github in November of 2020: https://github.com/mailpile/Mailpile/

Synapse: Matrix reference homeserverProject mention: Flashlight discord | reddit.com/r/flashlight | 2021-05-10

A glossy Matrix collaboration client for the web.Project mention: messaging apps and GrapheneOS | reddit.com/r/privacytoolsIO | 2021-05-11
Element/Riot.im - The notification badges issue occurred sometimes where it indicated there were unread messages when there were none, but they only occurred on a friend's Huawei so not sure if that was an element issue or a Huawei issue. But I will note that unlike Signal and Wire which is always polling their respective servers for new messages, Element instead polls every 5-10 seconds (customizable) for new messages. It did not always auto-start on boot and I had to manually start it myself. One further thing to note is element stores all messages in the cloud but it is also end-to-end encrypted.
A simple server for sending and receiving messages in real-time per WebSocket. (Includes a sleek web-ui) (by gotify)Project mention: AreWeDown? a self-hosted alternative to uptime robot | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2021-05-10
Can I suggest you add gotify as an integration? This way people won't have to configure email on multiple services.

High performance, self-hosted newsletter and mailing list manager with a modern dashboard. Single binary app.Project mention: Self hosted mailing list (like listmonk) | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2021-02-16
listmonk author here. It records e-mail views and clicks (if it's turned on in Settings -> Privacy). Right now, this data is only shown as aggregate stats on the dashboard, but the next release will have a proper reporting page to view it in detail.
a Disqus alternativeProject mention: Blogging is a tough business | reddit.com/r/hnblogs | 2021-03-30
You could host comments via https://posativ.org/isso/. But if you need a server anyway you could also just use a real blogging engine. Doesn't have to be wordpress - but something with comments, trackbacks and pingbacks should be the basics to have a chance.
💬 Modern, responsive, cross-platform, self-hosted web IRC clientProject mention: Any Word on PTP? | reddit.com/r/trackers | 2021-05-07
