I would also love an alternative to Google calendar. I just found calendar.social but it seems to be still in development...

@switchingsocial @PhilthePill

Indeed. 😿 Maybe something from Mozilla? Hmmm. Need to explore more.

@switchingsocial @jez @PhilthePill @calendar_social If you're ready to pay (1 €/month) and get an email service for the same price, I could recommend posteo.de/en.

If you're ready to self-host, you can always install Nextcloud and use its calendar app.

These are in no way the only options, but I've found these to be good myself.

@Stoori @jez @PhilthePill @calendar_social

Just to emphasise, you don't need to self-host to use Nextcloud.

There are many easy-to-use hosting companies offering Nextcloud accounts, e.g. indie.host, owndrive.com, ocloud.de etc.

You can sign up for Nextcloud just like signing up for email.

@Stoori
Glad you said this. I have nextcloud through disroot.org, and that helped me switch both email and calendar. I use Etar on Android with the nextcloud calendar and it syncs with my computer calendar app as well.

Thanks for the tips! I have seen mentioned in a few search results on the topic. I plan to check it out this week. 😁👍📅

@jez @switchingsocial @Stoori @PhilthePill can confirm, Nextcloud calendar is the shit. The web client is decent but nothing too exciting, the fact that every and any client that understands CalDAV or ICS can communicate with it is absolutely amazing.

And that's before you do the same with your contacts.
