remoteStorage is an open protocol for per-user storage on the Web. It defines a protocol to allow apps to store user data on a user defined server.
The user is fully in control of their data and any server that supports the protocol can be used to store data.

I think this is a very good fit for lesspass as it would allow the user to reuse their existing remoteStorage servers and could be additional to the lesspass server.

I am happy to look into that and would be interested in your thoughts.

Hi @bumi I will look at this more deeply after next milestone. I never heard about it. But I love open protocols.

For anyone interested, I've written an alternative LessPass widget and browser extension that stores password profiles on remoteStorage. Example widget and download links are on https://lesspass.alhur.es/.

Instead of a remoteStorage would it be possible to add lesspass profile database (server) as backend? Becuase it looks simple to setup with docker self hosted. Is there a example how to self host a remoteStorage server and compare features with lesspass profile database / server?

I know there are two plugins, but maybe both could be merged with remoteStorage and lesspass database server backends?
And an example how to setup self hosted remoteStorage would be nice. Docker based images and compose is an easy way for testing and production use.

@pwFoo I don't know about hosting your own remoteStorage, but there are many remoteStorage server implementations: https://github.com/search?utf8=%E2%9C%93&q=remotestorage+server&type=

The better place to discuss these things (or look for existing discussion, as surely there may be some already) is on the remoteStorage community: https://community.remotestorage.io/

I close. People can look at the fiatjaf implementation and discuss about this on https://community.remotestorage.io/
Cheers
