Nextcloud Text

Drone (self-hosted) with branch Start contributing

📑 Collaborative document editing!

  • 📝 Focused writing: No distractions, only the formatting you need.
  • 🙋 Work together: Share and collaborate with friends and colleagues, no matter if they use Nextcloud or not!
  • 💾 Open format: Files are saved as Markdown, so you can edit them from any other text app too.
  • ✊ Strong foundation: We use 🐈 tiptap which is based on 🦉 ProseMirror – huge thanks to them!

Nextcloud Text is available for Nextcloud 16 and will be part of Nextcloud 17 as the default text editor. To start editing just open an existing markdown or plaintext file or create a new one.
