ONLYOFFICE Docs is an open-source office suite distributed under the GNU AGPL v3.0 license. It is available as a free community version and also offers commercial editions for enterprises and software developers. The suite consists of web-based editors for text documents, spreadsheets and presentations that can be integrated with various cloud storage platforms and electronic document management services, such as Nextcloud, ownCloud, Seafile, Confluence, Alfresco, Plone, Nuxeo, etc. as well as with your own web application via the official API or WOPI.
Apart from the file-sharing and productivity software, ONLYOFFICE Docs can be used to create collaborative environments with some popular e-learning platforms including Moodle, OpenOlat, WebWeaver and Chamilo.
