What is a client?

In the context of computing and Information Technologies (IT), a "client" is a software program or a computer that interacts with and uses resources of another computer that is called "server".

In the guides on this site, we will use the term to refer to the first one, the software.

With a client, you can access some of the Disroot Cloud main features (such as email, calendars, contacts, files, tasks, etc) directly from your computer or mobile device.

Since there are many, we will try to cover mainly those that are Free and Open Source software and, in our opinion, are the most complete.

Of course, if you use one that is not in these Howtos and you consider that it should be, you can collaborate with the community by writting one yourself (see the How to Contribute section).
