office productivity packages

Unoconv requires services that my host fails to provide.  I asked and they will not give me access to open office on their server.  I suppose I could try to host the entire package myself, but I started looking for alternatives that weren't so heavy.

The old Zoho app from eyeos-apps failed to function due to outdated links.  If anyone knows of proper links to make that suite work, please let me know! The only part of that suite that even partially works currently is the "excel" part.  The link even loaded the very first time I tried, but then wouldn't load after that.  I thought it was strange, but moving on...

Next on the testing block is Feng Office, formerly open goo.  This looks promising.  It used to be called open goo.  Though I seriously doubt it will work without a little modification, there's an open goo app on the eyeos-apps site.  Even better, my host has a built-in installer for the Feng Office app.

Re: office productivity packages

Tested Feng.  disappointed.  It's a little complicated to set up.  I can only run it from a browser (either eyeIframe or eyeNav (with or without proxy)), and it only produces rtf and pdf formats from what I can tell.  It took so long to try to save a 3 line test doc that I forgot about it, printed a pdf file and closed the doc.  The rtf still wasn't saved, so all I ended up with was the pdf, on my hard drive, and nothing remained on the server.  On the plus side, it does stay self contained within a single frame and has an attractive and modifiable design.

Re: office productivity packages

I'm going to take another look at Zoho.  It should have all three features we want without all that extra fluff that's already built into oneye.  I just installed a Zoho plugin for MS Word, that is working even though I still use Office 2000 pro.  So hopefully I can get the old app to load zoho properly.

Re: office productivity packages

I have several of the Zoho links (all of the important ones, including the login module) running in Iframes and/or Nav. I need to tie them all into an app that will stay within the oneye framework, if possible, and not jump to a new browser window. I don't quite understand why all calls to a new browser window aren't handled internally by opening another eyeNav or EyeIframe already. Currently, logging in attempts to leave the page, but works fine if the jump is canceled, and opening a document from Zoho folders automatically jumps to another page without warning.

Furthermore, the app must not allow the user to open any of the zoho apps or the zoho folder until after logging in (without jumping off frame).  It must log the user out when he closes the last oneye frame.  These features will help prevent accidental or intentional use/abuse of someone else's account as well as ensuring the other links work properly. As a bonus, the app should integrate seemlessly with the oneye file system, if it's still possible.  The old app seemed to integrate the two cloud file systems by routing most calls to the user's hard drive to oneye's file system instead, and it seems that at one time zoho could even read the eyedoc/sheet/show files.  Those would be great features, if I could replicate them today. 

I'm sorry if I'm just flooding your forum with a bunch of "crazy" posts, but I really want/need a solid, "modernized" system up and running yesterday, so I can use it to get back to writing books and designing merchandise, and maybe even get a few friends to help me.
