I’m interested and can help with testing athough I cannot contribute financially.
Is the intended scope to replicate only the existing Dropbox/GoogleDrive functionality? That certainly simplifies describing requirements, but if there is more, do you have any user stories for guidance?
My personal interest in Nextcloud would be as a document management system with an approval workflow, for storing and accessing trusted documents associated with Items and Orders (e.g. manufacturer’s datasheets for COTS Items, engineering files/documents for custom Items, marketing documents/brochures related to Items sold, work flow procedure documents for assemblies, test results documents (per individual serialized Items, per batch or per order), etc. However, equivalent functionality to existing for Dropbox/GoogleDrive would be still be welcome (I currently using a cron task to rsync over ssh backups to a separate server) and a great place to start.
@sanjay, can you elaborate on your LMS project? Does it also involve ERPNext? I experimented using Moodle circa 2013/2014 to use internally within a large enterprise to manage employee training and record competency in various manufacturing and operating procedures. I saw lots of promise but the project didn’t get off the ground. Are you happy with the components you’ve chosen?
Our LMS project is combination of Moodle + NextcCoud + BigBlueButton.
Latest version of Moodle is quite mature as compared to earlier version as it can be integrated with other tools. There is still some scope of improvement for managing courses for sections under a class in School.
Also plugin can be created to enhance the functionality.
Hi there @wojosc another feature that would be pretty cool would be the option to disable the built in erpnext chat and replace with nextcloud chat, and for notifications/mentions to come from erpnext to nextcloud via webhooks or something similar.
Hey guys, we have been talking internally as we level our startup tasks.
Many of our customers and ourselve sincluded would certainly benefit form this.
As we were discussing during a work session with @monroy95, we would be willing to work on this specific application as a core feature for ERPNext, with sponsoring from whoever wishes to contribute.
The objectives would be:
Create a new integration, and submit PR to core #modules/Integrations
File Manager would synchronize a list of present files on the Remote Nexctloud server periodically or based on REST API calls. (endpoints for sync)
When downloading, redirect file download and fetched form Nextcloud server.
Files uploaded to ERPNext, would be copied to remote server.
For every file uploaded, user can select local ERPNext server storage, or any of the file storage Integrations. We are thinking something kind of similar to what our friends at @Martin_Seibert Media have done with draw.io:
