@neil yes absolutely!
@neil Thank you that's a huge one i somehow almost entirely overlooked.
@mayel Thank you; i hadn't known about Cryptpad! It's particularly interesting as a LibreSaaS example because the freemium pricing model provides all the functionality for free but then has a premium tier where you pay for things that definitely cost money per unit, as it were: more storage space, faster support.
@write_as hi yes! I'd added you pretty recently
@mlncn Awesome! Would love to see the talk afterwards, if possible -- I'm obviously interested in the subject 🙂 But either way, I appreciate the mention!
Matrix, Nextcloud, Sourcehut. It's a not uncommon model.
But NextCloud—which i use, and is excellent—as far as i can tell 'only' sells support, and never does the hosting itself? I feel i must include it but need to figure out the taxonomization for this different revenue model, which is closer to RedHat's classic model (it definitely started adding some direct SaaS; i need to research there too).
And Sourcehut, excellent, thank you! https://sourcehut.org/pricing/
Huh, that's my mistake then. I could have sworn they offered hosting as well.
@ross i'm not swearing they don't either, but can't find it; i think they're philosophically opposed: https://nextcloud.com/blog/the-issue-with-public-cloud/
But many of their customers (and non-paying implementers!) are offering NextCloud as a service, so really it is LibreSaaS, or available as LibreSaaS, but just one step removed— but the clarity of paying-for-the-service-funds-development is i guess the link i'm most hoping to find.
But anyhow, yes, hoping to show it's a pretty common model and help make it more common!
@mlncn I guess WordPress also fits?
It would be about the top example if so. I've been meaning to check what, if anything, in JetPack, offered as part of WordPress.com, is proprietary. I'm afraid it'll be a lot.
@mlncn Hah, yeah, the Sentry folks are fantastic but you do have to dig a little bit before they tell you that you could host it yourself. 😅
Oh, I should also have pointed you at https://zulipchat.com/ which has a link to their GitHub on their front page with the link text of "100% open source software", so it's a little more obvious. 😁
I'm sorry I missed this. I'm a big fan of sandstorm.io, a fully open source project that I see as a superset of NextCloud.
