Hello, I’m a total nubie to open-source installs and forums in general, but hope to utilize Wekan offline on my personal computer with the simplest/cheapest configuration possible for a MacBook Pro running ElCapitan/10.11.5.
Most of my work is done offline, so I intentionally don’t have constant internet connection, and instead utilize a portable wi-fi hotspot device, connecting when needed while traveling.
I’d like to utilize Wekan self-hosted offline for data control reasons, yet the projects I’m working on necessitate that I create a couple profiles for remote users to access and make changes on occasion, eg: during planning meetings.
From what I’ve read, it looks like all I need to do is download Sandstorm and then Wekan, but I’m wondering if I also need to purchase the “OSX Server” add on to protect my personal computer when it connects to the internet to connect with the remote profile collaborators? Or can I skip having to turn my personal computer into a server entirely if there’s only a couple remote profiles I’d like to collab with for a limited time period?
To recap; considering my intentionally intermittent connect to the internet, intended self-hosted/offline utilization of Wekan with occasional remote access by a small number collaborators, would I be greatly compromising my personal computer’s security or Wekan’s performance if I didn’t add on OSX Server to my computer?
Thank you for helping me figure out the most streamlined configuration to create, and I’m sooooo glad Wekan exists since I really felt uneasy utilizing Trello in the past when clients insisted, because the data is “theirs” vs. ours and on-line…yikes!
