What other projects like Disroot, Gibberfish and Stek are out there?

Hi all, in some of the other threads in this group I've recently come across projects such as Disroot, Gibberfish and Stek.io all of which seem great/ very interesting (in addition to Sandstorm and Framasoft).

What else is out there that makes it easier to for people to set-up and use multiple open source tools (and hence reduce their dependence of the tech giants)?

Note, I'm not interested in individual apps. Thanks!

I would say (some of them are french (don't know if it will be translated)) :
* https://indie.host/
* https://cap-collectif.com/
* https://ogptoolbox.org (don't know if they host, but they list a lot of open source apps, they seem in the same values than us)

Thanks, I guess Kolab also counts too.

What else?

Well, there's RiseUp.net, they host apps developed elsewhere but also do some dev (eg Crabgrass). CoActivate.org is a funny one, it's kind of built as a single collaboration app, but it incorporates existing apps (incl. WordPress and Xinha). Ethan, the maintainer, tells me the underlying codebase ("OpenCore") is not really practical to self-host in its current form, due to massive technical debt. But the aspiration is to up-date (and rename) the platform codebase, so future iterations of CoA can more easily incorporate more externally developed apps.
