Anyone have recommendations for self-hostable calendar servers? Link below has a list, but am looking for experiences using or hosting them.
@liw I enjoyed just using what's built into nextcloud .. then i found that nextcloud is included in the mailinabox package, and it was like .. winner! I don't have to do almost any admin work, which is ideal for my forgetful self
Honestly, all calendar servers suck. I tried a list of calendar servers and the one that annoyed me the least is nextcloud, which I use to this date.
@liw I also run NextCloud, for calendar, contacts, and notes. It's great. Not sure if I would use it if I were *only* looking for calendar, but probably.
@liw I've been using Nextcloud for about a year and I love it. If there is a weakness it is in lack of integration g calendar our outlook can achieve by scale. For everything else, though, it's been pretty much perfect.
@liw I used to use Davical and it was a pain to use and it became slow. Since I switched to NextCloud I have been happy.
Nextcloud (and IIRC also Owncloud) uses SabreDAV under the hood. It's great for my use-case of personal calendars shared between friends, all of whom have accounts on the instance. You can subscribe to web iCal calendars (slightly hit-or-miss), or publish a calendar as iCal in turn.
If you're looking for a platform to organize community events, I've had my eye on Mobilizon (joinmobilizon.org), but haven't had the chance to really try it yet.
Cheers, and good luck with your project!
@liw I'm using Nextcloud's calendar server, it does everything I personally need (but that's not much). For calendar only, Nextcloud is overkill, but I'm using a bunch of other nextcloud things, so calendar is merely a nice addition to those.
I ran radicale for a while and it worked well. No problems integrating with modern calendar apps, though my console based calendar (calcurse) didn't sync up correctly. It was pretty easy to configure and secure.
I'd be running it now if I hadn't migrated to Nextcloud for some of it's other features.
