    • Will talk to nginx too

Forum (Pedro)

  • Maybe we could somehow motivate more people to help there. The situations just got better. To promote more the forum and link it in other places

Symfony bundle ( Pol )

  • Really busy with work this week
  • What about adding to simple integration examples:
    • The main repository already has that but it’s currently very impartial but not really specific for Collabora Online. Everything is decoupled from anything (just an empty symfony that then he plugs the champs-libres/wopi-test-bundle)This test bundle is only made for testing, we could can make a bundle for Collabora only.
    • There is a distinction between a Symfony app and a bundle, a Symfony app cannot be plugged in into another app. On the contrary, a bundle can be used in any Symfony app.The structure of the wopi-app is as follow: wopi-app < wopi-test-bundle < wopi-bundle < wopi-libFind the wopi app here: GitHub - drupol/wopi-app
    • Simple examples — SDK documentation
    • “Advanced examples“ – and add PHP/Symphony there + description of the bits that it can do
    • PR#3208
      • Pol: I would like to have something standard
      • Kendy: could you please extend the discovery file so it has that? The discovery file is supposed to be something base. I think there I something that generates the file , somehow prepossessed . Could you please create a GH issue and provide some description?
      • Pol: I think we should provide the view name by default
