In my attempt to reduce my dependencies of external cloud providers of caldav/carddav (PIM) solutions I’ve been trying out a few different servers on my raspberry pi.
Among the options I’d tried were CalendarServer from Apple, ownCloud, Radicale and BaÃ¯kal. OwnCloud was too heavy (since I use other services like privoxy and lighttpd), iCal too sophisticated and radicale didn’t store the calendar and contacts in an Mysql database. So I went with Baikal.
After one year of working with Baikal I am very satisfied. The server runs flawlessly on my raspberry pi. Unfortunetly under GNU/Linux I had a hard time finding a nice client. After trying Evolution and Thunderbird/Lightning I stuck with Kontact that runs 100% stable.
