    Add instructions for installing Go on Debian The version of Go that ships with the version of Debian used by vagrant-spk is too old to build Sandstorm. These updated instructions explain how to get a newer version Go for building Sandstorm.

  • Troy J. Farrell (13 Mar 23)

    Add a missing period.

  • Ian Denhardt (27 Feb 23)

    Fix #3688 There were three problems: - The database property wasn't actually available here, so the query crashed when run, meaning appMarketHost was being filled in with an empty string. - The conditional was backwards, and so if the setting was absent this would then crash on the following line. - There was an extra trailing slash on the default URL -- which doesn't seem to canonicalize away, so even after fixing the above we were greeted with a blank page.

Sandstorm Reviews

More Cloud Productivity Suites

  • A zero knowledge cloud productivity suite. Provides Rich Text, Presentations, Spreadsheets, Kanban, Paint a code editor and file drive. All notes and user content, are encrypted by default, and can only be accessed with specific URL. The main disadvantage, is a lack of Android, iOS and desktop apps - CryptPad is entirely web-based. You can use their web service, or you can host your own instance. Price for hosted: free for 50mb or $5/ month for premium.

  • NextCloud Icon


    A complete self-hosted productivity platform, with a strong community and growing app store. NextCloud is similar to (but arguably more complete than) Google Drive, Office 365 and Dropbox. Clear UI and stable native apps across all platforms, and also supports file sync. Supports encrypted files, but you need to configure this yourself. Fully open source.

  • A platform providing online services based on principles of freedom, privacy, federation and decentralization. It is an implementation of NextCloud, with strong encryption configured - it is widely used by journalists, activists and whistle-blowers. It is free to use, but there have been reported reliability issues of the cloud services.

  • Vikunja Icon


    Vikunja is an open-source to-do application. It is suitable for a wide variety of projects, supporting List, Gantt, Table and Kanban views to visualize all tasks in different contexts. For collaboration, it has sharing support via private teams or public links. It can be self-hosted or used as a managed service for a small fee.
