GSoC 2019 - Deeper Nextcloud Integration - Utkarsh Barsaiyan

This project aimed to enhance and drastically improve the existing integration between Rocket.Chat and Nextcloud. Rocket.Chat is a leading open source team communications platform whereas Nextcloud is a very powerful open source, self-hosted file sharing platform. So, it is only logical to combine the power of the two greatest open source software and create a seamless integration experience. The main areas of focus were overhaul of the WebDAV file picker and auto insertion of Nextcloud WebDAV server when user logs in through Nextcloud OAuth.

We offer both nextcloud and Rocket.Chat to our community so we are very excited about a deeper integration.
Here is another use case: Our users love to set their team membership in nextcloud in circles. Circles is a nextcloud App that is well integrated in most other apps and allows to self-manage public, open, closed and private groups. Do these levels of access sound familiar to Rocket.Chat users? What our users would love to see is a RocketChat App in nextcloud, that automagically offers a chat channel for each circle and access permissions are being mapped. Nowadays we have to set up for each nextcloud circle a group in Rocket.Chat and manually sync the memberships in both.
Maybe you can keep that feature request in mind, at least for the next GSoC.

That’s a very interesting usecase @rasos and does not seem difficult to implement. Maybe it can be implemented before the next gsoc :slight_smile:
