Useful for Anyone to Know:
I've raved about Nextcloud here enough that I'll bet Mark Wieder's tired
of it <g>, so I'll try to not let me enthusiasm run away with me - I
could go on about Nextcloud for way more than anyone wants to read.
It's like a blend of Dropbox, Google Docs, and more than a hundred
add-on apps for everything from a kanban tool to media streaming to
videoconferencing - all free and open source:
I use one internallt, to sync my LiveCode plugins folder across my
machines, as well as some client projects. And I use another externally
as a client portal where we share files, a kanban board, etc.
If you can set up an Apache Server under Ubuntu on a VPS, adding
Nextcloud is as easy as a one-line Snap call.
If you're not yet comfortable wrangling servers, there are many
companies offering hosting listed at the site.
Nextcloud's file repository is a WebDAV server, which makes it a perfect
compliment to something that showed up in our community just the other day:
Extremely Useful for LiveCode Developers to Know:
A frequent forum contributor, "bangkok", has posted a super-cool demo of
a library from Matthias Rebbe for WebDAV client functionality:
You can :
-upload a file
-download a file
-create a folder
-delete a folder/file
-list the content of a folder (method PROPFIND)
You could use this on any WebDAV server, Such as, say, Nextcloud. :)
I've tested the script on both Nextcloud servers I manage - works a
treat. Thank you bangkok amd Matthias Rebbe!
In your case, Mike, your data could even be a simple tab-delimited file,
stored and retrieved using WebDAV.
I'm building out most of my back-office tools around Nextcloud's WebDAV
as a shared data store.
