Not sure if this helps but…

There is onionshare that let’s you share files of any size securely and anonymously…

And seafile a sync and share solution. You might need to setup a local server though.


Yeah, that’s the thing.

People don’t want to think about checking / upgrading software, configuring hardware, keeping up to date with github, etc…

They just want it to work. And not think about it.

Open source has to offer something like, " How You Can Own Your Own Google"… then provide a plug-and-forget system out of the box… with easy 1, 2, 3 setups… and stays up to date without maintenance… for it to have mass adoption.

But the community has been growing steadily so you never know what could happen lol


Open source has to be practical. The majority of people are not thinking about their privacy, data, ways around it, etc…

What they are thinking about is how easy it is to get the things they want… saving time, connect with people faster, search quickly, and using thngs (ie software) that does most of the heavy lifting for you.

And that’s where the problem with open source is.

People will choose to own their own data/self host when it’s as easy as a click of a button.


Check out ‘Scrambled Exif’ … erases info from photos before you share them
