OnlyOffice for YunoHost

Integration level Working status Maintenance status

Install OnlyOffice with YunoHost

Lire ce readme en français.

This package allows you to install OnlyOffice quickly and simply on a YunoHost server. If you don't have YunoHost, please consult the guide to learn how to install it.


ONLYOFFICE Document Server is an online office suite comprising viewers and editors for texts, spreadsheets and presentations, fully compatible with Office Open XML formats: .docx, .xlsx, .pptx and enabling collaborative editing in real time.

Online collaborative edition of ONLYOFFICE documents requires:

  1. a server part, with two installation options:

    1. ONLYOFFICE Document Server packaged for YunoHost.
    2. The Community Document Server for Nextcloud
  2. a client part, such as:

    1. The ONLYOFFICE connector for Nextcloud
    2. The ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors

A solution made easy by YunoHost is to install (1.i) and (2.i), see section below. The Nextcloud addicts may follow this tutorial to install (1.ii) and (2.i) on one Nextcloud instance. However, performance and architecture are limited.

Shipped version: 7.5~ynh1
