SparkleShare – a file sharing and collaboration app. It works just like Dropbox, and you can run it on your own server. It’s available for Linux distributions, macOS, and Windows.
SparkleShare creates a special folder on your computer. You can add remotely hosted folders (or “projects”) to this folder. These projects will be automatically kept in sync with both the host and all of your peers when someone adds, removes or edits a file.
SparkleShare uses the version control system Git and the large files extension Git LFS, so setting up a host yourself is relatively easy. Using your own host gives you more privacy and control, as well as lots of cheap storage space and higher transfer speeds.
– Frequently changing project files, like text, office documents, and images
– Tracking and syncing files edited by multiple people
– Reverting a file to any point in its history
– Preventing spying on your files on the server using encryption
The project founder is Hylke Bons.
