TagSpaces Pro Web
TagSpaces Pro Web is a web application based on the Pro Edition, supporting most of the features offered in the desktop version of the application and running in a web browser. This version of app is intended for self-hosting. It is typically used in home environments or in small companies (e.g. on NAS systems). It can only manage files on located S3 object storages hosted on private MinIO servers or in AWS S3 buckets.
TagSpaces as web application#
With the web interface of the Pro Web edition, you can provide access to your digital notes, photos, music, videos and other documents in a convenient way on computers, tablets or mobile phones in your local network.
If your private network is accessible via e.g. VPN, you can assess your files from everywhere on the Internet.
Easy to deploy and maintain#
The web app needs just a static web hosting, which can be provided by any modern web server running on a PC or a NAS (Network Access Storage) from e.g. Synology or QNAP,
For hosting of the files, you will need a S3 compatible object storage, which can be in the Cloud like on AWS or a MinIO server running on your NAS or other server in your private network.
Putting the web app on a web server will make it accessible from everyone in your network. In order to restrict this, you can setup a simple basic access authentication in front of the folder hosting the app. Even without this auth, the users will still need to use the credential for accessing the file in the object storage.

MinIO Object Storage#
MinIO is a high performance distributed object storage server, designed for large-scale private cloud infrastructure.
Minio allows you to expose a local file structure (protected by user accounts with secrets) via the Amazon S3 API over HTTPS. You could, for example, use it to provide access to "buckets" (folders) of data on your file store, secured by access/secret keys, just like AWS S3. You can further interact with your "buckets" with common tools, just as if they were hosted on S3.
MinIO is an open source and can be used for free under the terms of the AGPLv3 software license.
