software caldav server baikal outdated alternative radicale

Post by pizero »

Hello, everybody,

the dietpi software contains the cald/dav server baikal for synching calendars and address books.

Unfortunately baikal has not been further developed for some years:

Therefore I would suggest to use another cal/dav server.

A good alternative to baikal is radicale which is very fast and lightweight:

Thanks for considering my request.

maybe you don't know, you can use nextcloud, it has an integrated caldav (of course it's not an lightweight alternative)

Thanks for your suggestions - yes I know there is a adressbook and calendar in owncloud/nextcloud.

Many people just want a lightweight, fast and reliable cal/dav synch for our devices. And here baikal/radicale is the way to go.

You can run owncloud/nextcloud on raspberry - but its overkill and waste of ressources...

to baikal:
if I look at his blog he stil release updates for baikal, last one depends on php7, for me it looks secure enough. I know everyone has his own preferences, but do we need an alternative?

Baikal is a Cal and CardDAV server, based on sabre/dav. The sabre/dav and the other sabre.io projects are developed by fruux. Baikal was developed by Jérôme Schneider from Net Gusto and fruux. So sabre /dav is improved and in development and Baikal is on hold and not under active development.

@pizero
AGAIK Baikal has been taken over by sabre.io developers. As you can see, it is now under sabre-io owner and actively developed on GitHub: https://github.com/sabre-io/Baikal
At least commits and releases are done, three from beginning of this year.

No reason to not have a look at radicale as well, but for me indeed Baikal looks re-activated ;).
