Is it usable?


ownCloud - Apr 19 2011
answered
Question:Hello,

I've been reading about owncloud after seeing the announcement in kubuntu 11.04 beta information page. It looks really promising. However the official website is very disappointing and the documentation is poor.

On the contrary I realized that owncloud is available for 10.10 just installing it from repos.

My question is: is it really usable? how close to the announcement is it? (I installed it using kpackagekit but apparently nothing happened).

Thanks





Answer:I installed owncloud from the current git repository this evening, because I was curious too. I downloaded it to my webserver and it installed very simply with a php setup wizard that asked for usernames and database passwords, etc. Fairly standard, if spartan. Once installed I could upload files using the web interface, and manipulate them on the web file box. There was a javascript photo lightbox/viewer but the html5 audio plugin didn't work for me. The most interesting thing to me currently is the ability to mount the owncloud as a webdav:// resource in dolphin and drag files to it directly, on the desktop. Is it usable? Yes it is, and it's slick. This is pretty neat even now but the devs have big ideas and I think it is going to be way cooler when the project is farther along. Definitely one to watch,
