Thinking about bringing slide decks now on Slideshare / Scribd ‘home’ to self-hosting. What would be options? Basic hosting packages (possibly limited storage), cloud storage (possibly hard to embed in viewer), any things between those two?

  1. OnlyOffice or Collabora via Nextcloud seems to work fine for all office tools, including presentations. They used to be a bit harder to install, but are now just 1 click away.


  2. yes, it would need me to create a public link for each file individually though. I plan to include an html object w t public url, so prefer immediately public urls being available.

  3. @ton Not self-hosting, but a friendly alternative to Slideshare could be https://zenodo.orgThere are other open repositories for scientific documents that are open source.

    Zenodo – Research. Shared.

  4. I’ve embedded a couple of presentations for now into my notes to serve as the public URL — https://bmannconsulting.com/how-to-build-a-business/

    I can figure out how I want to permanently self host over time. The public URL is the important part IMHO.

    I’ll probably figure out an image slideshow: it’s relatively easy to export to images from presentation software. And include a self hosted PDF for download.
