Context and background
- easily sharing documents
- creating project documentation that can then be shared publicly
- create spin-off applications that interact with a nextcloud ecosystem. Think of a
sports tracker(who are we kidding?) shopping list app that stores its data in a nextcloud folder instead of a centralized service)
- see if we can do something with the SOLID concept that the Flemish government is working on (decentralized cryptographically safe storage of your personal information). There exists a rudimentary POC for SOLID inside Nextcloud. Can we set up our own pods and maybe even learn some things along the way?
Jurgen has set up Nextcloud on a local computer in the past - it’s not that hard.
- proxmox instance on the local server (still under configuration)
- set up a proxmox device (8GB or RAM, 500 GB disk space should be plenty for starters)
- install and configure Nextcloud
- set up Nextcloud groups for members (more storage), guests (small storage), ideally aligned with LDAP
- configure LDAP for user management
- Set up IPv6 to make Askarel happy (and for improved security)
- configuration of reverse proxy to make the cloud accessible from the outside and blazingly fast from the inside (LAN).
- set up Collabora Office
Nice to have additionals - to be discussed
- create a dummy account (Questular Rontok) that you are allowed to try hacking.
- organize a workshop on Nextcloud API
- organize a workshop on Nextcloud and SOLID
Issues to be resolved
- Nextcloud client doesn’t seem to work with our instance.
