So newbee here I have installed NextCloud pi onto my new Rasbery Pi4. I want to use it to replace Google Docs eventaully. My understanding is that I have a choice of either Only Office vs Calibra office. First I have to enable to app on NextCloud which is the easy part…but then I need to host the server side of Only Office vs Calibra office which seems alot harder.
I am only really doing this to see if Nextcloud is going to be a viable and reliable alternative to Google Docs. Hence I want the quickest and easier way to install the server side.
Is it ok to host the server side on my Rasberry pi 4?
I do have a domain with storage space would that be better ?
There seems to be many differant blogs which all show differant ways to install either which is the best way?
I have tried both and I settled on OnlyOffice soon afterwards. OnlyOffice offers the best results, when it comes to reproducing the original layout of Office documents. As already been said, OnlyOffice runs locally in your browser and thus lifts the heavy work from you OnlyOffice instance - a rather small VM will be enough.
Last but not least, OnlyOffice offers native mobile clients for iOS and Android, plus some desktop clients, which one can use to even work with local files, if the NC instance is either not accessible of there’s no network connectivity.
