And finally, we arrive at the data. Data versioning has become one of the most discussed topics in the production machine learning community. Unlike code, you can't simply check data into version control easily (although tools like DVC are attempting just that).
CodiMD - Realtime collaborative markdown notes on all platforms.Project mention: Are there any collaborative note apps like Outline that aren't as complicated to maintain? | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 2021-09-24
I was going to suggest CodiMD but it seems these 2 are very similar?

Library for building distributed, real-time collaborative web applicationsProject mention: Microsoft Launches Google Wave | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-11-02
(Disclosure: Work at Microsoft, but I work in Azure and some open source stuff, not on or directly with Fluid/Office/etc.)
That's just a trademark clause for Microsoft logos and brands. The Fluid Framework itself is [MIT licensed](https://github.com/microsoft/FluidFramework/blob/main/LICENS...) and doesn't require exposing any of those logos/brands when you use it, so the framework itself is fairly open for usage.
I think the main thing that would slow down adoption for Fluid is that the only "production" backend is an Azure service, which isn't part of the open source Fluid Framework. [Other open source backends](https://fluidframework.com/docs/deployment/service-options/) aren't recommended for productions. Until there are some open source ones, I'd assume adoption will be limited to folks in the Azure ecosystem.

A map tool with real-time collaboration 🗺️Project mention: LeafletJS | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-08-16
Super handy library. I used it for a real-time collaborative map tool , it's especially useful when it comes to customization, plus it has many plugins which add a lot of functionality. Leaflet Geoman  for instance is great for creating all sorts of geometries on the map, I've personally used it for my tool so users can designate areas and paths. So good.
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.Project mention: Help me choose distro | reddit.com/r/FindMeADistro | 2021-12-04

TerminusDB is an open source knowledge graph and document store. Use it to build versioned data products.Project mention: Knowledge Graphs | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-10-22
We have a immutable chain structure in TerminusDB which allows for straightforward uncoordinated multi-read access or multi-version concurrency control. This approach also makes branching simple to implement. Any number of new layers can point to the same former parent layer.
