Nextcloud was always designed as a software platform and not a monolithic application. This is why we have the apps concept, many of the APIs and why we push open standards.
In the past, many developers and companies used these capabilities. Today, we are launching the new Nextcloud developer program to bring these capabilities to the Next-level!
Here’s all the news from the Nextcloud Conference:
We are looking for individual developers and companies to work with us in building new apps.
There are several things you can do:
So why is Nextcloud a great foundation for your app and why does it make sense to integrate with Nextcloud?
Nowadays we estimate the number of active servers to be between 250.000 and 300.000 with tens of millions of users. That makes Nextcloud with quite some margin the most deployed on-premises file sync & collaboration platform! In other words, building a Nextcloud app means having a huge audience who can install your app with a single click!
Why is Nextcloud so immensely popular? It provides what people need!
Nextcloud’s mission is to be the decentralized central hub that allows you to stay in control of all your data, communication and collaboration needs securely, protecting user’s privacy. That is the reason why home users, companies, universities and the German and French governments and many other organizations from the EU trust Nextcloud to handle their data and meta data.
Nextcloud started like an open source alternative to Dropbox. More like a tool to store, sync and share files. Nowadays things have changed and we are competing with services like Google GSuite and Office 365, covering a lot more than normal file syncing.
As a full alternative to the propriety and centralized services from Microsoft, Google, Dropbox, Apple and others, with Nextcloud you can do collaborative office document editing, use a calendar, contacts, do group-chats, video and audio calls, emails, notes, RSS feeds, project management drawings, manage passwords and a lot more. All of that 100% Open Source and self-hosted of course.
Nextcloud is also very scalable. It runs on tiny systems like Raspberry Pie up to a group of server clusters distributed over several hosting centers and continents with millions of users.
We at Nextcloud are looking forward to work with other projects and companies to integrate their software and promote the integration together. If you have build an app or want to build one and would like to get a blog published, or even see if there is a way to work with Nextcloud GmbH to monetize your work, shoot us an email!
All the information and the useful links are listed on the new developer portal page.
If you have any questions about these new opportunities for developers to build on top of Nextcloud you can always contact us.
Let’s make a difference and help users take back control over their data and communication!
