Google Docs plugin

Added by Koob Koob over 8 years ago

We use Google Docs on a daily basis, for document collaboration - software documentation (coding standards, functional description etc.), as everyone can get access to latest information and edit files simultaneously, but it is very inconvenient to switch between google docs to redmine back and forth, so it would be awesome if there was a tab in Redmine with Google Docs.
We use google docs for lot of things - it's like, online sharing, storage and collaboration. I see that Google Calendar plugin is already there, but adding Google Docs as well would be priceless.

Most-likely the tab-plugin by James Turnbull fits your need. HTH...

It actually does not work as expected:

1. I can not add a long text like this as custom field to Redmine projects (which makes it mpossible to add it as project tab)
<iframe src="http://docs.<MYDOMAIN>.com" style="border: 0" width="800" height="600" frameborder="0"
scrolling="no"></iframe>

2 errors:

  • « Name » is too long
  • « Name » is invalid
    2. The global link is ok, but it navigates away from Redmine. Weird thing is that when I put address http://docs.google.com it shows in an iframe, but when I put our own address http://docs.&lt;MYDOMAIN&gt;.com browser navigates away

3. Did't get to try this, but I'm guessing that a log in will be needed in the I frame, but maybe it's possible to pass the login form fields from Redmine to Google Docs, so users don't have to type the login twice.

Apparently, there is a plugin on github that does exactly what you're looking for:

Has anyone tested this plugin? I'm trying to get it running on 0.8.5 and get a 500 error.

Thanks,

Paul

Okay, i missed the database migration, so now it runs, but it is not obvious (to me) how the plugin is supposed to be used or administered. There is a file index.html.erb that I can add an iframe to to bring up the google doc, but how do I create multiple docs and associate them with specific projects?
