SeaFile and LibreOffice Online together provide most of the functionality of Google Docs
SeaFile and LibreOffice Online together provide most of the functionality you get in Google Docs, except that you can own and install the software on a server in your private home.
Brendan will demonstrate setting up a home file server using the following:
- Ubuntu 22.04 Server OS
- Apache web server, Python 3, MySQL
- Collabora LibreOffice Online
- Afraid.org free dynamic DNS
- Let's Encrypt free TLS certificate service
- GoCryptfs for encrypting all of your data and databases at rest on the server
No need to take notes. A complete write-up will be posted on www.glump.net .
