First time append.
I’ve used LibreOffice for awhile on my desktop for personal doc use and love it.
I would like to integrate Libre Office Online to one of the websites that I own/maintain so my clients can directly, in a browser, create/update/delete documents that I maintain for them on the server (without the hassle of upload/download).
I started looking at OnlyOffice to accomplish this as well, but have decided to go with Libre Office Online
My hosted server runs Centos 7 and I have full access to everything.
I have a few questions (mostly related to installing/running LibreOffice Online in docker) that I was hoping someone could help me clarify before starting down this path …
Since both LibreOffice Online and OnlyOffice offer a Docker install (and claim it’s the easiest way to get up and running)
it’s probably time I started learning Docker …
I had planned to start here - How To Install and Use Docker on CentOS 7 | DigitalOcean to get Docker installed and then get a container for LibraOffice installed. … or can anyone suggest a better place to start ?
This seems like a lot of overkill to be able to edit office docs on a server … I say that just because I don’t yet understand the resource/performance/maintenance hits involved with running things in Docker.
Still not sure if I can access/open/save a document that’s on my server that are outside of the docker container (?)
To clarify … I would only want to use the docker container to supply the document editor functionality of my web app. My app would continue to run as a normal web app as it does today (not in docker).
I already have some “document management” functionality running as part of my app using Cute File Browser similar to this demo - Cute file browser
Was hoping I could “hook in” LibreOffice Online when clicking to open a file.
Any help/advice/suggestions in getting started with this adventure is most appreciated.
