Integrating third party applications into Share

Question asked by bengrah on Aug 22, 2011
Hi guys

One of the things we would like to do is integrate other applications into Share.

For example, we've been looking into LibreOffice (the OpenOffice fork not affiliated with Oracle) and wanting to get it to work with Alfresco. What we'd like to do is use the Edit Online control on a document and then have the document open in LibreOffice Writer. Is there any way that this could be done via a button? I know Edit Online works via the Sharepoint protocol, but we have managed to get Edit Online working outside of Sites (in the Repo) just over webdav.

Could we potentially just change the application that we open documents with to get this to work? Or is there more involved in the process. We would potentially like to use links to other third party applications in the future, but for now this is the one that's currently on the radar.

Thanks,
Ben.
