Post by Kate » Wed Oct 12, 2016 8:21 am

Exciting news for open-source community - we have opened the source code of ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors!

Why to use

ONLYOFFICE Desktop Editors is an office suite that allows users to create, view and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations on PC or Mac without Internet connection. Being fully compatible with MS Office, the editors also support other popular formats, including ODF. The editors can be easily connected to your ONLYOFFICE portal, no matter which solution you use - cloud, Enterprise edition, open source or your free personal portal. In online mode you may use all the collaboration features: two co-editing modes (fast and strict), commenting and built-in chat.

Plugins (add-ons)

The editors' functionality can be extended by third-party plugins. Create templates, insert video from YouTube or write your own plugin to add a function you need to the editors.
