If you are running a website created and maintained with Drupal, a popular open-source content management system (CMS), you might want to add new functionality and customize your Drupal platform. Drupal is equipped with some great default features, like easy content authoring and advanced security, but its modularity is what makes it truly unique. With thousands of projects, also known as Drupal modules, contributed by third-party developers, you can make your platform more powerful and scalable.
To enable document editing and real-time co-authoring within your Drupal platform, you can install ONLYOFFICE Docs on your Ubuntu machine and integrate it with your content management solution by activating the corresponding ONLYOFFICE module. ONLYOFFICE Docs is an online office package that is publicly available on GitHub under the terms of the GNU AGPL v3.0 license. This open-source suite comes with a set of collaborative editors and viewers for text documents, spreadsheets, presentations, fillable forms and PDF files. ONLYOFFICE Docs is completely compatible with Open Office XLM (DOCX, XLSX and PPTS files).
The ONLYOFFICE online suite allows you to collaborate on documents in real time within a number of file-sharing services, e-learning platforms and electronic document management systems (DMS), including Nextcloud, Seafile, WordPress, ownCloud, Chamilo, Confluence, Alfresco, Nuxeo, Moodle, etc.
The recently released version 7.2 of ONLYOFFICE Docs makes the Drupal integration more powerful due to a new plugin manager. ONLYOFFICE plugins allow you to enable new features, like translation, grammar correction and communication, in the ONLYOFFICE editors. Starting from version 7.2, you can automatically install and delete plugins with a couple of clicks. Other updates include new interface themes (Dark Contrast and Same as System) and languages, ligatures, new field types and parameters in fillable forms, OLE spreadsheets, etc.
In this guide, we will tell you how to integrate ONLYOFFICE Docs with Drupal and how to use the ONLYOFFICE editors within the Drupal platform.
