App Installer & Updater
A built in one-click installer and seamless updates makes handling of self-hosted applications as easy as on Android or iOS.
Easy domain setup
Grand Decentral helps you setup your own domains. Every app gets its own subomain. Everything can be customized.
With support for Stripe, Paymill, Fastspring and Paypal, Grand Decentral handles payments for your app in whatever way your users prefer.
Every app will be installed in a secure, sandbox environment that protects users from malware. Apps can interact via the Interapp API.
Global user settings
A unified control panel handles all settings for core services and apps. Additional settings for installed apps can be added in seconds.
The built-in state-of-the-art mail server comes with a kick-ass filter system, spam protection and full integration for your apps.
All apps can make use of the built-in calendar server, which makes it possible to sync calendars with all major calendar clients.
Grand Decentral has a unified addressbook, which is syncable with all major addressbook clients through the built-in server.
Dropbox-style syncing of files is not a problem for Grand Decentral. Built-in SFTP and SSH access make it even better.
All apps benefit from the fantastic built-in asset server that optimizes all assets and delivers them in the fastest possible way.
Upload your own picture and let Grand Decentral become your central avatar hub. Just like Gravatar but in your control.
Enter your contact details and share your vCard with selected people. Other GDS owners can sync it with their addressbook.
Any user data coming can be version controlled by the system and users and apps can access earlier versions of generated data at any time.
As app developer you don't have to care about user registration or authentication anymore. Users only have to login to the system once.
The system can be connected to a variety of backup solutions. Encrypted backups are made on a configurable schedule by the system.
Send and receive emails with your app. Setup and encryption are handled by the system. Every app gets its own inbox address.
Every app gets its own CouchDB instance. Store and retrieve data without the need to build a schema first.
Send and receive encrypted messages and status updates from other Grand Decentral Stations.
Communicate with other apps installed on the system to exchange data or trigger app events.
Create background tasks and get notified of finished tasks and their results. Tasks can be scheduled easily.
Each app has its own file system it can write to and read from. Files can be exchanged between apps with the Interapp API.
