In this series of screencasts I will create a Fever-compatible API layer for Nextcloud News, since I want to use this as my primary news reader. This API will be used to connect Nextcloud News to my Newsreader Apps on macOS and iOS. The API itself will be a separate application written in NodeJS that just uses the Nextcloud News database to query and write data. Later on I will probably create a Nextcloud App, but for now this series focuses on reverse engineering, functional programming and test-driven development in NodeJS.
Notes, besides photos, are the pieces of data I care most about. I want to review them even after years, have them available on the go and make sure I never lose them. Up until now, I stored my Notes in iCloud alongside Apples Notes app. This article is part of the byeCloud series in which I try to replace iCloud with self-hosted services.
The Apple Approach To Notes Initially, I wanted to retain this app and thought of going with IMAP Notes, which is what Apple does: They basically devote one IMAP folder to a list of mails with special headers.
In this article I will describe how I set up my Nextcloud instance aiming to replace iCloud Drive. This article is part of the byeCloud series in which I try to replace iCloud with self-hosted services.
The goals for a file syncing infrastructure are simple
I want a reliable solution that syncs files as-is, that does not corrupt them and does not cancel uploads all the time. Additionally, I want to be able to access my files on the go using a mobile app, as well as having files on my local hard disk to also be able to use it offline, just in case I have no network connection.
