Onlyoffice is an online document editing suite. Your can open documents in Onlyoffice by clicking them in Nextcloud. You can open new documents by clicking the “Plus” button in Nextcloud and selecting Document, Spreadsheet or Presentation.

Zulip

Zulip is a team chat application.

Unfortunately, Zulip does not yet listen to the Stackspin roles, so once you have installed Zulip, you need to make one of your users the owner. That allows this user to manage Zulip’s settings from inside the application. This owner can also edit other users’ roles.

For this, you have to replace <your email> in the the following command and run it on your cluster:

` kubectl exec -n stackspin-apps zulip-0 -c zulip -- sudo -u zulip /home/zulip/deployments/current/manage.py change_user_role <your email> owner --realm 2 `

Wekan

Wekan is a Kanban board application.

WordPress

WordPress is a website content management system.

Known issues

If you want admin privileges inside WordPress, you need to set this in the Dashboard. Then, you need to log in to WordPress again.

If this is your first time logging in to WordPress, you have to log out and in again for your admin privileges to be applied.
