Understanding the differences between LibreOffice Online, CODE and Collabora Online

We welcome the first source release of LibreOffice Online, which has been released with LibreOffice 5.3. This is exciting news! Some people may wonder what the differences are between this new release and CODE (Collabora Online Development Edition) or Collabora Online, we’ll explain that below.

libreoffice_tdfLibreOffice Online:

  • LibreOffice Online 5.3 – source
    • LibreOffice Online while being fairly small has a very tight coupling to the underlying LibreOffice core version it works on, it requires that version.
    • TDF provide a source release that matches the LibreOffice 5.3 release branch suitable for packagers.
  • LibreOffice Online Docker Image
    • This is a convenient docker image at:
    • This is a very regularly updated snapshot of the latest master build of both online and LibreOffice that has passed both the LibreOffice and online automated testing.
    • Great for home use as well as enjoying the latest translations and developments.

Background information

Collabora, a leading contributor to the LibreOffice codebase and community, is the driving force behind putting LibreOffice in the Cloud. Initial development started back in 2011 and four years later, in 2015, CODE (Collabora Online Development Edition) was created, allowing people to check out LibreOffice in the Cloud for the very first time. Short after this, Collabora released the production-ready Collabora Online 1.0.

Recently, CODE 2.0 and Collabora Online 2.0 made collaborative editing available, and this functionality is making its first debut into the initial LibreOffice Online release.

We encourage people to contribute and get involved. While Collabora has done 99% of code commits so far – we would really love to have more people involved. Do send patches to gerrit or to the development-list to get in touch.
