Dear Gentoo community,

I would like to advertise my overlay for libreoffice-online at https://github.com/timeraider4u/libreoffice-online.git with the corresponding ebuilds. With these ebuilds you do not need any Docker container to get the collaborative office suite running but can install them on any workstation or virtual machine directly instead.

Feel free to use, fork and modify them.

Amazing.
I've just wondered if any real-time collaboration is finally available on Linux!

I wondering - should I install OwnCloud/NextCloud/... as well to get a "full" Google Docs-like solution?
Where would it save documents if *Cloud is not installed? Maybe some clarifications/FAQ on github for others to see?

Yes, you are right. I will add some more instructions on how to use it when I have some time.

Basically, as far as I have found out yet, the back-end-storage can be used in two different modes:
filesystem or webdav (I have not had time to test the later one, so no guarantee is given that it will work)

You can configure this in
Code:
/etc/loolwsd/loolwsd.xml
inside the tag
Code:
<storage>...</storage>

The important thing is the boolean value for attribute allow in:
Code:
<filesystem allow="true"/>
.
You can then open the file
Code:
/var/lib/libreoffice-online/home/hello.odt
by opening
https://localhost:9980/loleaflet/loleaflet.html?file_path=file:///var/lib/libreoffice-online/home/hello.odt&host=wss://localhost:9980
in your web-browser.

Sorry for digging out this old thread, but I am still looking for a way to implement online office in my nextcloud without the need of docker bloat. Now, if reading the following blog correctly colabora online without docker would mean to compile libreoffice and libreoffice online. Thats where I found this thread and I now am wondering, wether this still works as the github entries are 1-2 years old.

https://blog.emrich-ebersheim.de/2017/03/31/collabora-online-fuer-nextcloud-auf-ubuntu-16-04-ohne-docker/

Could this blog serve for creating an actual ebuild for this? Unfortunatelly I am not capable to create an ebuild myself :oops:

Or is the only way to use docker in the end? I dont hope so, as I read some posts about running nextcloud and online office on the same server and set it up without docker.

Docker is just a way of bundling together packages so you don't need to know what you're doing to get something going. If a project can be made to run in Docker, then you can get it to run without Docker, if you have enough patience and information about its requirements. Whether that is a worthwhile use of your time is a separate question.

I am still interested to integrate office document integration in my nextcloud but still not willing to do it the docker way. Is there some information available, on howto to do this with gentoo? I would really like to avoid the docker bloat but if there is no other way I maybe will have to think about docker anyhow.
