First off what is Seafile.
Seafile is a self-hosted file synchronization program that works with the server-client model as in you have several devices like your laptop and phone that connect to a central server.
Unlike some more popular alternatives like Nextcloud or ownCloud Seafile tries to follow the philosophy of 8220do one thing only but do it well8221. Likewise Seafile doesn8217t have extra goodies built in like Contacts or Calendar integration. .
Seafile instead focuses solely on file syncing sharing and the things surrounding it and that8217s it. As a result of that though it ends up doing so extremely well.
Most tutorials on It8217s FOSS are focused on beginners. This one is not. It is intended for advanced users who tinker a lot with DIY projects and prefer to self-host.This tutorial presumes that you are comfortable using the command line and that you are at least decently knowledgeable with the programs we8217ll be using.
