Managed to move my calendar relatively painlessly to nextcloud from google.
@douginamug Not currently, I'm paying for the hosted offering from GreenNet (https://www.greennet.org.uk/internet-services/nextcloud/greencloud). It's pricey but I like them as a company so happy to send some cash their way and save the time and effort of worrying about maintenance and backups for now..
I will probably self-host eventually. I did set it up briefly on my server, it was easy via Docker until I tried to set up the Collabora Online integration, I gave up at that point. But for calendar and contacts you don't need that.
No one is super motivated to do maintenance, and we still haven't set up backups 😅
We're sticking with plaintext for now, and using the desktop sync. This makes is easy enough to do spreadsheets when needed.
@douginamug I'm recording my notes on using it here: https://doubleloop.net/go-libre/go-libre-calendar-contacts/
It's a bit sparse at the moment but I'll add bits and pieces to it over time...
