Produce and Publish Update - collaborative editing with Nimbudocs and Plone

Over the weekend I hacked a quick integration of the Nimbudocs Editor with Plone 4.3 in order to demonstrate the collaboration modus of Nimbudocs Editor.

To make it short:

  • an editor can enable the collaboration mode for the current Plone document opened in Nimbudocs Editor
  • other editors (with edit permission on the document) can join the editing session
  • the primary editor of the document can give control to other participants
  • all changes are directly reflected to other participants (like Google Docs or Etherpad)

Here is a quick (unedited) video showing the integration:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwVcrSi-qwI
