Google docs integration?

I know one can integrate collabora/onlyoffice, but I think it would be a nice option to have document editing with google docs as well. What is the likelihood of this happening?
Thanks to devs/maintainers/all contributors for providing nextcloud! Its awesome.


well open source means that everyone could (and should) take part in the developpment of the code. so i guess the moment you’d decide to start that project it would have a starting point.

apart from that i dunno about any project aiming to that goal (i even don’t know if g-docs is open source or if the api is public documented)

happy coding!

google docs is tightly integrated to google drive. And the api does not from what i know allow to open documents from another storage to edit in google docs.

So, I personally use Dropbox, and there you can just right click and create an google docs Dokument. When you dubble click it, it will open up in google docs also.

good to know. And thanks for letting the forum know about it (BTW: Thanks for your very first contribution on here and welcome to the forum)

Though it won’t change anything from what I said above. :man_shrugging:

Yes Dropbox is yet another closed source software.
So you don’t really know who the Gdocs are handled :space_invader:

You can use OnlyOffice.

Test free
User: nextcloud-demo
Password: nextcloud-demo

Or create a free account at and use Collabora and OnlyOffice with 8 GB for free.

The first post spoke already about collabora and OnlyOffice. His first goal was to use Gdocs :face_vomiting::nauseated_face::anguished: nobody’s perfect :ok_hand:t2:

Yes and after more than a year he do not need an answer :wink:
If he want use Google Docs it would be better to use the full G Suite

Google is the number 1
Google don’t need competitor when Google is superior in anything

Why bothering with Nextcloud when for a cheap amount of money you can have much better ?
Alright Google increased the cost of every Gusers by 30% in 2018, but it worth it.

The game is over and Google won !

/troll mode

For the most people it is the truth and no trolling.
Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Facebook, … have won.

I think Nextcloud is the future.

I’m gonna close that one as there’s nothing new added here…

Except for some Off-Topics.
Hope anyone would mind.
