7157Personal cloud, meet Unhosted
- May 9, 2014Unhosting (as in unhosted.org) is a different technology strategy to
implement the goal of having users control their own data.
It is an architecture in which
1) Apps run in the cloud, not on the client
2) The app is not tied to a specific host or domain
3) User data does not live in the app but on an arbitrary server of
the user's choice
An app's code would be expected to work off the shelf on a wide
variety of hosts. npm install from an open repo should be enough.
An app's data would be expected to live in any location compatible
with a publication and storage protocol, including:
- Indie Box (tm)
- local storage
- a cookie
(I'm not close to the details of Unhosted apps and am probably making
some error here).
