- Article Title: Using LibreOffice in a Web Browser
Note: this is an obsolete prototype
This page was marked as inactive and is retained for historical reference.
Beginning with Version 3.5 LibreOffice can be launched as a web server. This allows using LibreOffice online within a web browser. A short demonstration is available here.
- A Linux server
- A recent version of gtk3. A backport for openSUSE 12.1 can be found here, but if you have all the current updates installed it should just work out of the box.
- gtk3 with broadway support (for archlinux aur/gtk3-broadway)
Since online support is not production ready yet, it is not included in the regular packages of LibreOffice 3.5. Therefore it's necessary to build LibreOffice from scratch. For information how to download the sources and compile them see here.
To ensure the required gtk3 backend is used, add --enable-gtk3 as an autogen.sh/configure option. For now it is recommended to add --without-java as well.
Running LibreOffice in server mode
After successfully building launch LibreOffice with the following commands:
Now point your web browser to http://<servername>:8080 - if you're testing locally that'd be http://localhost:8080 of course.
