Re: Editing/Viewing attachments (mainly Word and Excel) directly on server without the need to download locally

Looking for alternatives I found these 2 articles that summarize exactly what I would need:

https://mikekaganski.wordpress.com/2016/10/29/first-blog-post/

https://mikekaganski.wordpress.com/2016/11/20/integrating-libreoffice-with-sharepoint-part-2/

 

So the alternatives (protocol - wise) that I can see are (talking about editing in desktop version of LibreOffice / MS Office):

  • WebDAV
  • CMIS

I have been looking for WebDAV already and mentioned it in initial email. Looking for CMIS I found this: https://github.com/OCA/connector-cmis

 

However that is for integration with external CMIS server such as Alfresco. So I would need to implement CMIS server as Odoo module to achieve what I want. Will research that.

 

Best regards
