At the moment I am looking for a tool that would help me to optimize daily routines in my family: shopping lists, duty schedules, various reminders and so on. Looks like the best option would be some kind of simple collaboration app, but at the moment I’m having trouble finding a good FOSS, preferably self-hosted alternative to popular services.
Here’s all I can figure out so far:
Padland — the client app for Etherpad, which is a pretty bizarre online text editor for groups. Not sure if this is the optimal solution. Joplin — is one of the most popular note-taking apps that can be adapted for group work. It provides a good balance between functionality and simplicity, but is still tailored for other purposes. Besides, I don’t really like it’s GUI.
Hi, if your needs are not too advanced, maybe you’ll be fine with the events and tasks sharing capabilities that comes with the Calendar application. You could create a new “family” calendar and share that with your members. Any new events or tasks created in it will be available to all subscribers and you will be able to set reminders too.
