You know what I want out of Dat/IFPS/whatever? A shared calendar (say, family-wide, or workgroup-wide) that doesn't need a centralized server. And accessible on my phone, even when offline. Is something like that possible?

@federicomena seems like that was the goal of sending ical files via email. By keeping the same IDs they items could update and everyone had offline calendars that sync'd with mail.

For today, we have all our family calendars (one per person and one 'house') on a @nextclouders server that sync to everything. It works great. I don't think anyone in my family knows how to log into the webui, just all on their devices.

@ted (I know! I wrote *that* code for Evolution!) :)

I have Nextcloud at home and it's nice. So people work on $phone_native_calendar and it later updates via caldav?

How does it work when offline / when online but you can't reach your home server?

@federicomena I pay to have a server hosted on the Internet, so I don't have that issue. (and super excited about the end-to-end encryption in v13 there)

I think, depending on the client, it will just error out. Davdroid is what I use and it is OSS, so you can look.

Also, you can use Pagekite to give your home server an address on the net.

@ted Ooh, Pagekite looks interesting, thanks!
