Hi FileRun Dev team,
I would like to suggest an additional way of previewing MS Office document. I already found a somewhat similar discussion of this subject on the Reddit FileRun forum .
Up to my knowledge I can use for MS Office Documents preview:
- Google Docs
- Office Web Viewer/Office356
Google Docs and Office Web Viewer/Office365 are cloud services and therefore bring up data privacy concerns. OnlyOffice offers a community version of the OnlyOffice document server as well as an enterprise version. Even as a docker installation it needs its own database and is a rather big package wit considerable dependencies for only previewing MS Office files.
As a conclusion, I would like to suggest to offer LibreOffice for MS Office files preview. It works for that use case in NextCloud (see https://www.allerstorfer.at/nextcloud-install-preview-generator/ for example) with a rather lightweight, local LibreOffice installation and a preview app in NextCloud. I see the advantage of my suggestion in the absence of data privacy concerns paired with a local and lightweight installation of the preview app.
Perhaps you may consider this feature suggestion for future FileRun versions.
