Great Alternative to Dropbox - for teams as well as individual use

Pros: I was looking for a solution that would provide Dropbox-like features to my team of some 25:

* Robust syncing and sharing

* Multi plattform support

Seafile fit the bill spot on. Syncing and sharing works like a charm, no matter what platform or hardware. It is robust, reliable and fast. Just like I got to know Dropbox over the past years.

What I was not expecting to get, but what we started liking a lot is the integration with a online editor. It gives Seafile all you know from Google Docs: You can work simultaneously on one and the same office document straight from the browser. All edits are transmitted in real time to all co-editors. No local editor needed. (We are using OnlyOffice as a document server. We also tried Collabora, but Only Office has a much nicer UI and better compatability.)

Cons: Installing Seafile is not as simple as using it. It takes a little effort to get it up and running. (OnlyOffice integration is easy thanks to the provided Docker container)

Seafile's folder and user administration lacks some simple features that you would normally expect to facilitate system administration (i.e., sorting, filters, customizable table views) .

Fantastic

Pros: I love Seafile! It is a great alternative to Dropbox that I can host myself and own my own data. Has many great features like being able to share an upload link for others to send you files.

Cons: A bit of a learning curve to set up if you aren't a system administrator, but the documentation is really well made.
