Is there Online Version of OpenOffice?

Postby teacher001 » Mon Jun 08, 2015 4:01 pm

I am an online instructor who uses OpenOffice. Many students are purchasing Chromebooks.


Is there an online version of OpenOffice? If so, does it include all components (i.e., database)?

No. OpenOffice must be downloaded and installed locally.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP

Look at www.rollapp.com. They have OO Writer available as an offline app on Chromebook. I have downloaded it for testing and I am having issues saving a document, so check it out carefully. I suspect that the files are saved only on their cloud server.

A database deserves its own service. Databases are radically different from documents. IMHO (don't know much about it) you can build a cloud service on a database but not the other way round.
Please, edit this topic's initial post and add "[Solved]" to the subject line if your problem has been solved.

I looked at the software products that rollApp has online and the OO database, draw, writer, and presentation packages are there. It appears that you have to sign up for a premium package at $5.99/mo. to save files to your Google Drive, Box, or Dropbox. The free level of service allows a user to view OO files saved on a another device where the file was generated if you are away from that device. Interesting approach to having software available from a cloud server. Hope this helps!
