getting started with libreoffice online

I browsed through this manual before. What I think is a bit strange 
about this manual, it quickly assumes you have some sort of cloud 
connection. I also do not get why write/calc are even discussed, they 
already have their own manuals.

I think this manual should start with getting libreoffice online working 
without any other 3rd party connections. Just create a file and be able 
to edit it. To be able to quickly test it, and see if it fits your 

Up until now, I have not even been able to get a test environment 
running with this docker. I edited the loolwsd.xml, enabled the 
filesystem and added ip's. But just keep getting error messages. 

I am not sure if you are aware, but these docker images do not even have 
version tags.
I also start to wonder now what all these videos on youtube are all 
about. I get the impression this is still in some alpha/beta phase, is 
this correct? I am missing something in the manual about linking it to a 
standarized object storage api like ceph or amazon use.

take some time.
