GNOME meets ownCloud

with 13 comments

Now that we are in the middle of the various freezes in preparation for GNOME 3.8, it is a good time to talk about some of the things that happened over the last six months. One such thing is the integration of ownCloud in GNOME. Go to the Online Accounts panel in Settings (hit the super key or the Activities button and type “online”) to enable your ownCloud account, and you will be able to access your calendars, contacts and files from GNOME.

Calendars and contacts can be accessed via CalDAV and CardDAV from their respective tabs in Evolution. Files in your ownCloud storage show up as volumes via WebDAV in Nautilus and GtkFileChooser.

Many thanks to Milan Crha for making the necessary changes to hook up Evolution with ownCloud in time for 3.8.0.

Setting up an ownCloud instance on OpenShift

with one comment

Ever since portknox.net suspended their gratis offering and sereinity (from #fedora-devel) shut down his server, I had run out of instances that I could use for working on bringing ownCloud closer to GNOME.

Few days ago, Michael Scherer pointed me to ownCloud-OpenShift kickstart, and it is really as easy as the README.md claims to be.

Thanks to it I have now got myself owncloud-lostcase.rhcloud.com.
