Nuxeo ONLYOFFICE integration plugin

This plugin enables users to edit office documents from Nuxeo using ONLYOFFICE Document Server - Community or Integration Edition.

The plugin allows to:

  • Create and edit text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
  • Share documents with other users.
  • Co-edit documents in real-time: use two co-editing modes (Fast and Strict), Track Changes, comments, and built-in chat.

Supported formats:

  • For viewing and editing: DOCX, XLSX, PPTX.
  • For viewing only: PDF, ODT, ODS, ODP, DOC, XLS, PPT.

You will need an instance of ONLYOFFICE Document Server that is resolvable and connectable both from Nuxeo and any end-clients. ONLYOFFICE Document Server must also be able to POST to Nuxeo directly.
