Collabora Online Development Edition - Self-Hostable Office Suite


Collabora Online Development Edition

Integration level
Install Collabora with YunoHost


Collabora Online Development Edition also known as LibreOffice Online, is a server service built from the main LibreOffice project code which provides display and collaborative visual editing of a range of document types. It does not include any form of file system. To be fully functional, it has to be integrated with file access and authentication provision from an underlying stack of software.

Shipped version: 4.0.0 RC2



To be sure it works, you need :

  • one Nextcloud on a dedicated domain and install this package on an other dedicated domain (or subdomain).
  • Let’s encrypt on each domain

So I have made this package work again. It’s currently in a testing mode. Feel free to test it (not on your production server) as you have tried to setup it in the past.

If you have a problem to remove it, try this, and notice it here:

touch /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/25loolwsd
apt remove loolwsd

Note: i don’t know if i will maintain it (because i need to test onlyoffice too and choose the best for my use case)


Random very boring remark but : if we could have consistent name between the manifest id (collabora), the repo name (collaboraonline) and the key in community.json (collabora), I would be sooo happy :stuck_out_tongue: (so maybe renaming the repo while the app still aint used a lot)



@ljf, when you’ll have tested both, could you give us a feedback?

Etherpads : problème installation

Hi there, I was so happy to encounter an online LibreOffice Yunohost app being able to work with Nextcloud. I tried to install the Collabora app in the Yunohost admin environment, but it encountered an error and did not install, unfortunately (see the log below).

Does anyone have an idea why? Was it because I tried to install it on the same domain as my Nextcloud app? And is it really mandatory to create another subdomain for it to work?

I would be really happy if you could let me know what I need to do to get it to work :slight_smile: Many thanks in advance.

P.s. I see that this page linked above is “not yet available”. Some installation and configuration instructions would be very useful to have somewhere…

By the way, I read about the inability to remove the Collabora app in this thread. Is that the case for my try as well? Is the failed install still on my system? In the log it said something about it being unable to uninstall because it did not exist…
