Does anyone know if there is a decent #FOSS solution to editing #LibreOffice documents (particularly spreadsheets) on an #Android device? Bonus points if it works nicely with #NextCloud. I've come across collabora, but it seems proprietary.
Collabora Office is #FOSS as far as I know. The option I prefer to edit 'productivity' files (word processing, spreadsheets, presentations, etc.) is #OnlyOffice which integrates nicely with #NextCloud. It can be configured to read and write Open Document Formats (e.g. ODT, ODS, ODP, etc.) but it's very good at reading/writing MSFT's shitty OOXML formats, too, which is sometimes advantageous.It's not hard to run your own (there're lots of good tutorials on setting it up).

it takes a while to load documents via the NextCloud app but there's also an Android standalone OnlyOffice app (I believe it's #FOSS that only seems available via Google Play, not F-Droid (sadly).
@lightweight AND: You can now edit these files with the local applications! Nextcloud locks them, downloads them, and when you close the editor, the file is reuploaded and unlocked.
@lightweight Yes!
Follow-up question: is there an iPhone solution for this? It's all for naught if I can't get @Katy Lamothe on board.

Looks like my #epub reader of choice for #Android (Libera Reader) has a known #security vulnerability and F-Droid recommended uninstalling it. Can anynoe recommend a good replacement #FOSS epub/pdf reader?

Would you be able to share the details about it? I like Libera Reader and haven't headed about the bug (yet)
