I would like to introduce you to a project we all love at Cozy: it’s called Unhosted. They advocate the concept that web apps should offer the choice of data storage location to their users. That way, users can keep control over their data while still being able to enjoy apps provided by third-party developers. Like every good hackers, Unhosted crew walked the talk. They built Remote storage, a technology that allows web application to choose the location of the web storage. Users can keep their data in a place of their own.
And now here is the good news: two weeks ago Romain and Michiel built a Remote Storage appliance for Cozy (see here for the whole story). It means that you can enjoy all the Unhosted apps like Laverna or SVG edit while storing data in your Cozy. So, When you finish enjoying this sunny day (at least in Paris ;)), try the new Remote Storage application available in the Cozy App Registry:
(proxy module update required before installing this new application):
It’s big news for another reason. In the decentralized world, projects are young with very different architectures, so collaboration between them is hard and rare. Today, we are proud to announce that a bridge was built between Unhosted project and Cozy. By working together we will go faster to propose a strong alternative to the Cloud Giants.
