ONLYOFFICE is an open source office suite that comprises editors for text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. The suite allows extending the functionality of third-party web apps with document editing components, thus being used within their interface. In this article, we showed the most important features of ONLYOFFICE Document Server and three ways to install it and all dependencies it needs for further integration on your local server.
Just to remind, ONLYOFFICE provides a collection of ready-to-use connectors that allow integrating online editors into your favorite business platform: Nextcloud, ownCloud, Alfresco, Confluence, SharePoint, Liferay, HumHub and Plone. All these integration apps are available on GitHub.
There is also a large variety of connectors developed by ONLYOFFICE’s technological partners such as Seafile, Liferay, HumHub, Nuxeo, Jalios, Plone, kDrive, OpenOlat, Agorum and Maarch.
