SHW02: Nextcloud

Welcome back to the second episode!

This time I’m talking about the self-hosted cloud-storage solution Nextcloud, which, with its numerous extensions is the swiss-army knife of self-hosting solutions.

FileRun – Probably the slickest file-management software out there

It feels like only yesterday that I wrote about Nextcloud (it was actually a few weeks ago), and today I’m already writing about yet another self-hosted file storage solutions. It’s called FileRun, and its lead developer Vlad Roman dropped me a note a few days ago to take a look at it. It’s been around…
