I notice Nettu has a built-in graphing calculator, and BBB doesn't.
Will you also be offering a turn-key service? I use BBB though https://meet.coop.
Having more open source options with corresponding hosting services would be great.
And Firefox is not supported?
Anyway, this open source alternative doesn't work with the open source browser and suggests to install two proprietary ones instead.
Sorry about that! I had actually commented out firefox support in the frontend, but I pushed a new updated now that uncommented it.
Firefox is supported
Are you running an old version of edge? If not, do you mind filing a issue in the repository?
I'll go ahead and file an issue for it now :-)
I think vertical scaling will be more than enough for most of the users that are going to self-host this.
We all try to support Firefox. But given the relative usage numbers of Firefox, Chrome/Chromium/Electron/Edgium, and Safari, it's sometimes hard to devote resources to testing and workarounds.
A speech therapist friend of mine recently lamented about the lack of good solutions for online therapy in this space, and this seems to check most of the marks. Two feature additions would make this viable and also very valuable for her use case:
- Ability to save/load different whiteboards (with multiple slides) as templates, to prepare material for the patients to fill out/work with. There might be hundreds of slides needed for one session, so setting it time and again would not be an option.
- Ability to export all (filled out) slides as jpgs or a single file pdf at once
Definitely keeping an eye on this one.
I am definitely going to work hard on this project. I would love to hear more about what usecases you think might be missing, dont hesitate to add feature requests as issues in the repository on github when you think of something else.
Is there any serious reason for this kind of omission in an open source project?
1. Text. It has no ability for text other than drawing it. This might be fine for some use cases, but typing is much faster when you are on a computer.
2. A better set of tools for diagramming (including the text that I just mentioned). It can still be simple. See whimsical for a very good example.
Do you have any suggestion?
The Google (new) meeting moderation abilities are a good starting point.
