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.
