5 examples of ONLYOFFICE editors integration

Many web apps would benefit from document editing capabilities, but not many developers have enough time and resources to create that functionality from scratch. ONLYOFFICE editors are here to the rescue! You can integrate them with your app.

In this post, we collected 5 examples of ONLYOFFICE editors integration – from simplest document management systems to world famous open source platforms.

#1. Integrating ONLYOFFICE with Node.js app

#2. Integrating ONLYOFFICE with Python app

Python was the biggest gainer in the Tiobe index of language popularity in 2018, and it is also the most popular 1st language taught at universities. We could not bypass it! So, here is the article in which we are creating a simple doc management system using Python (to be more exact the Bottle framework). Apart from adding viewing/editing functionality, you will learn how to implement co-editing and manage users.

#3. The Nextcloud case: integration with a PHP app

Integration with Nextcloud which is written in PHP is one of the deepest ones we have, and our services definitely have a certain chemistry. In this article, we’ll explain how it is done.

The thing is that for integration ONLYOFFICE needs certain permissions from the service, namely:

  1. Adding and executing custom code.
  2. Anonymous access for downloading and saving files.
  3. Adding new buttons to UI (for example, “Edit in ONLYOFFICE”).
  4. Оpening a new page where we can execute our script to add an editor.
  5. Ability to specify settings: at least, the virtual address of the ONLYOFFICE Document Server.

From our text, you will learn how all those things were implemented in the ONLYOFFICE integration app for Nextcloud.

#4. ONLYOFFICE + Pydio written in GoLang

This one was created in collaboration with the developers of Pydio Cells, an open source Sync&Share service written in the Go language. Check out the config and learn how the integration is done. Read now

By the way, Pydio developers used the free community version ONLYOFFICE Document Server for creating a testing environment. They also claimed that all the information needed for integration can be easily found in the ONLYOFFICE API documentation. We hope you find this inspiring!

#5. ONLYOFFICE editors + Community in C#

As you may have noticed, our server-based solutions (Enterprise Edition and Community Edition) have two main parts Document Server and Community Server which is written in C#. So basically this is the most advanced case and the deepest integration we have!

Apart from our internal DMS, the editors are integrated with CRM, Projects, and mail.
