Integrate ownCloud in GNOME

Status: Done (gnome-documents will be revisited later)


ownCloud is free software that allows you to build your own "cloud" service on your own infrastructure. It offers access to your files, calendar and address book via WebDAV, CalDAV and CardDAV, apart from offering a web UI that can be accessed using a web browser. Similar to Ubuntu One, but with free software on the server side. I think GNOME and ownCloud share the same goals to build a free computing environment for everyone, so this makes a lot of sense.

Prospective integration points would be Files and Documents over WebDAV, and Evolution over CalDAV and CardDAV.

Shouldn't we also integrate the following?

-- AlexandreFranke

It would be great that integrates with the others apps in gnome

  • Photos
  • Music
  • Videos

and the option that could choose what folders do you like to sinc for offline use -- DavidSanfelix
