After the COVID19 pandemic it became apparent that digital infrastructure is very important for communities in their everyday workflow. The list provided here tries to collect applications and platforms that are built by communities for communities having their intrinsic needs in mind. This toolkit provides a list of digital applications with the following characteristics:

  • Private and secure
  • Open source
  • Can be self hosted
  • Easy to use by communities who are not necessarily tech savvy
  • For the most part free to use.

The toolkit allows its users to create an infrastructure that will make their everyday workflows more easy and accessible. It will support their attempts to reach out to a wider audience, spread their actions and also it will facilitate sharing of components that are necessary to work (mostly when physical presence cannot be attained).
