I want the ability to make some Files in AnyType server only. so that I don’t have an offline copy of them on my laptop or mobile(Or any other client).
I think the most non-intrusive way will be to add a new boolean relation (a one like object type and creation date that are added automatically) named Offline with the default value of it being True.
When I change the value to false. the file will be saved only on the
any-sync-file-server and streamed/downloaded every time I want to view it.
I have a nextcloud instance that I want to replace with AnyType.
- All my notes can be replaced easily.
- Calendars will also be added to AnyType.
But I have 20+ GB of videos (mostly recorded lectures) that I don’t want to have on my Laptop nor My phone.
I think having them on my home server is enough. and streaming them whenever I am in my home is the most convenient way.
I know that with the current vision of AnyType being local first and using that world a lot in the marketing, my FR doesn’t make sense.
But for the future of AnyType (especially when people start self-hosting and find that there is a separate component called file-server) I think this feature will fit in perfectly.
