I’m kind of tired of Nextcloud because it’s using so many resources on my server and I’m only using it for calendar and address book for two users. So I’m looking for alternatives, what do you use (only self hosted) and how do you like it?

    I use this Docker image for Radicale: https://hub.docker.com/r/tomsquest/docker-radicale

    You can try using Caldav-sync as an alternative for syncing on Android. It’s more reliable than Davx5 for me with very large calendars.

    There was also a Carddav-sync from the same developer but that app doesn’t show up on the store for me anymore for some reason.

    Alternatively you can use the Calengoo app, it can sync directly to a Caldav server bypassing the Android system.

      Thanks for the info. Davx5 has worked well for me, but it’s still nice to have alternatives.

      My challenge has been finding a decent open source calendar app for Android, which unfortunately excludes Calengoo. I’m just not interested in using closed source network-capable apps to manage my personal information.

        What about Fossify Calendar (a fork of and currently pretty identical to Simple Calendar). It’s honestly the best calendar I’ve used

          I haven’t had time to check out the forks from Tibor’s apps, but I recall there were issues with the original Simple Calendar Pro which is why I had settled on Etar at the time. I’ll definitely keep an eye on Naveen’s repos though.
