Looking for developer for community-App in Nextcloud

We’re a housing collective (in German: Wohnungsbau-Genossenschaft) with a lively community of members in our collective. We’re planning to provide our members a Nextcloud infrastructure.
One of the most desired features is an app, that can provide offers and requests (something like Craigs list - but restricted to the Nextcloud- users).

Specification is available in German but can be translated to english. Just to be clear: we’d also pay for the work, of course.

The App can be made open source, once it’s ready.

Happy for any feedback, cheers,

Hello Norman,

thanks for contacting me. Could you give me some references regarding Nextcloud? Did you already develop some apps or contribute?

best regards,

Hi Martin,

Are you still looking for a developer?

I’ll be available shortly to help you if you want.

I have contributed quite a lot for Mail and I’m now developing an app that should be open-sourced in the next coming months.

Best regards,


Shouldn’t https://apps.nextcloud.com/apps/collectives work out of the box?

Sollte nicht https://apps.nextcloud.com/apps/collectives passen?

Hey @MartinOkrslar,

I’m one of the developers of Nextcloud Collectives. We aim to support self-organizing processes in communities and social movements with our app. Please don’t hesitate to contact us or write here if you find our app useful in general but miss a certain feature.

We don’t have plans to support advertisements (offers/requests) in particular, but you could create a Collective for this purpose (e.g. “Angebot & Nachfrage” :wink:) and maintain subpages for different categories, for example with “offers” and “requests” subpages each.

Not sure if OP wants to use Collectives, but if so it might need some integration with a Calendar (date posted + possible expiration) and possibly Cospend.

Deck might also be a good tool.

My main recommendation is Discourse, same software we use for this forum.

I was thinking the same.
Option to attach files to cards, conversation per card etc.

I hope you support Nextcloud in another way if the app suits your needs. :slight_smile:
