Hi, everyone!

For several years, I’ve relied on NextCloud as a substitute for Google services. The time has come to say goodbye and move on in life. I’ve decided to replace my NextCloud instance with separate services for files, calendar, photos, notes, and to-do lists.

I’ve already found alternatives for all services, except for the calendar.

Does anyone have experience with FOSS projects that would allow me to self-host a calendar? I’m looking for something that supports CalDAV, has its own (pretty) user interface (webui), caters to multiple users, and supports multiple calendars.

And if anyone is interested in the alternatives I’ve found for each NextCloud component, here’s the list:

NextCloud Files -> File Browser NextCloud Notes -> Joplin NextCloud Photos -> Immich NextCloud Tasks -> Vikunja NextCloud Calendar -> ???___

Edit:

In the end, I used Radicale software. I deployed it in a docker container and it worked almost right out of the box.

    I recently switched from etesync to a self-hosted solution and didn’t want to install a full Nextcloud on my tiny home server just for that. So I initally tried out radicale as well, but I didn’t like the default user handling (no authentication at all) and the project had been unmaintained until very recently (two weeks ago). I switched to baikal then and I am quite happy with it so far.

      I’ve never used Radicale, but I just looked it up and the homepage talks about enabling authentication. It also supports auth via reverse proxy headers, which is great for anyone who wants to use Authelia, KeyCloak, or another similar solution. By contrast, as far as I can tell, Baikal doesn’t support reverse proxy auth, though it does seem to let you set up auth through the web interface.
