WOPI

This module was written to implement the WOPI protocol in order to allow online collaborative editing and viewing of office files. This works with LibreOffice online/Collabora online and probably also with Office 365.

Installation

To install this module, you need to:

  1. have a WOPI client available. For testing, use one of the Collabora or Libreoffice docker images. The first works out of the box, but is rate limited, the second needs manual interaction, but is unmodified. The Nextcloud documentation contains some information on how to get this running
  2. have your instance accessible on port 443 via your WOPI client and should have a valid SSL certificate
  3. use a dbfilter if necessary to have unauthenticated requests ending up in the database you want

Configuration

To configure this module, you need to:

  1. fill in your WOPI client URL in the configuration wizard

Usage

To use this module, you need to:

  1. on any supported attachment, click the edit button
Try me on Runbot
