Humble beginningsAbout a year and a half ago, after hearing some people voice complaints about the less than optimal setup for having administrator defined folders shared within an organization, I set out to write an app to simply the setup for the administrators and make things more clear for the user. How hard could it be, simply create some folders outside of the user’s home directories, re-use some existing logic for restricting access and mount it in the configured location for members of a group. Add a simple UI on top to configure the whole lot and everybody should be happy right? The admin interface for the first versions of groupfolders.
Today Nextcloud announced support for online office with Collabora Online using a docker image to host the Collabora Online server. The announcement contains steps of how to setup the docker image and integrate it with Nextcloud for users using apache as a web server, this post will explain how to set everything up with nginx.
This post describes the trough steps needed to create an ownCloud app with a React.js based frontend. As an example we will be rebuilding a simplified version of the logreader app, a single page app with the entire ui (save for some small chrome that comes with oC) made in React. Since this app uses a fairly simple read-only php backend we can focus on the client side part of the app.
