What are your preferred alternatives to Google Drive's shared documents for writing/editing? Preferring ones which don't require accoutn/login!
@jackivan88 thank you! I don't think this one will exactly work for what I'm thinking but I love the auto self-destruct for other applications.
@despens thank you! it's delightful that the conference option is free.
@platypus oh idk if that req login. ._.
@serialscrisis it's super cool to know about at least *investigates*
@platypus @serialscrisis I've coauthored I think 5 papers on overleaf by this point. i don't have an account on it but the person who created the projects did I think. I like using my own editor and compiling latex myself versus using the web interface, so it was nice to have that option. it uses git in the backend, which is also nice for reverting changes.
@platypus Host your own Nextcloud with collabora office 😃
@platypus Ironically I just got a Chromebook as the cheapest immediate replacement for my netbook that went bellyup, and I fucking HATE that the only "hard drive" is Google Docs. I got an ext hard drive with it to circumvent it. Before, I wrote in Libre Office (and hosted online with Google Docs, unfortunately, since Dropbox let everybody down).
@platypus The whole list of Etherpad instances is here: https://github.com/ether/etherpad-lite/wiki/Sites-that-run-Etherpad-Lite
@platypus Riseup.net have an open Etherpad instance which you can access as an .onion site.
@platypus Etherpad is the only one I'm really familiar with. Kind of working on an ethercalc alternative server implementation, though.
@platypus I've heard about Collabora but honestly didn't use it
@platypus I have instances of Etherpad-Lite and Ethercalc running at home.
@platypus i want to know as well!
@platypus passing around an org-mode file or wikimedia
The perfect solution is self hosted nextcloud, but you can found some instance open to public too
@platypus Atom with the Teletype add-on might work depending on your use case.
