Let's say I want a self-hosted collaboration and communication suite (calendar + document editing + file sharing + chat).
Should I go for Nextcloud, Sandstorm or something else?
Help and boosts very appreciated.
@Antanicus I've used ownCloud/Nextcloud a time or two for collab and file sharing and it was fine. Granted it was me and a couple of other people so it wasn't a big team or anything. We didn't use it for calendaring or chat because Outlook and Slack.
@Antanicus I would check out Cloudron as it provides one-click installs of great open source web apps (Nextcloud included) glued together with a central user database and with automatic updates and backups.
But I also have a longer answer: https://talkgroup.xyz/t/should-i-go-for-nextcloud-sandstorm-or-something-else/2539?u=maiki ^_^
I have no experience with Sandstorm so I can't fairly compare the two but I can say I am very satisfied with Nextcloud + Collabora CODE for file sharing, calendar management, and document editing. As far as chat goes, Nextcloud Talk is supposed to be very good but I've never done more than a few quick tests with it. If you have an XMPP account or if you can set up a server (I recommend Prosody), there is an XMPP app for Nextcloud.
