The official ONLYOFFICE connector became the first partner certified add-on on Nuxeo Marketplace. Now Nuxeo Platform users are able to edit and seamlessly collaborate on office documents right inside their content management system. Read this post to learn more.



About Nuxeo

Founded in 2008, the company is increasing its global presence and spanning three continents now: Europe, North America, and Asia.

Why integrate Nuxeo and ONLYOFFICE

In the day-to-day running, Nuxeo users create, store, and collaborate on all kinds of file formats: office documents, PDF, images, videos, etc. To enable users to edit office documents right inside the content management system, without downloading them or switching between multiple apps, it is necessary to connect Nuxeo to a third-party cloud collaboration solution. It can be a constraint if Nuxeo users don’t want to make use of cloud office suites.

To respond to this need, the ONLYOFFICE developers have decided to create the integration app to connect these services and thus provide Nuxeo users with a self-hosted and feature-rich alternative.

From the idea to Nuxeo Marketplace

Based on their previous experience (examples of connectors are given in the ONLYOFFICE documentation) and inspired by best practices available in the Nuxeo University, our developers got down to work.

After the first internal tests, we submitted the connector and the documentation for review. The Nuxeo team closely examined the code and all other elements, then they tested the add-on to make sure that all the tools perform as they should.

The ONLYOFFICE integration app has achieved the highest level of certification and is available now on Nuxeo Marketplace with all necessary documentation.
