Startup of an intranet for my local church community

intranet Sint Lucas parochie

intranet Sint Lucas parochie

A parish with eight locations, 100 groups and over 500 volunteers has recognized the need for their volunteers to share their knowledge and experience.

Mr. Ritter started to investigate the potential benefits of a Social Intranet and finally implemented a solution based on the open source Elgg system.

The Elgg system is a web application based on PHP code, the functionality can be extended by so called plugins. Mr Ritter developed a Google Drive plugin and donated his contribution to the community. The plugin provides the following services

  • directory explorer with direct access to Google Documents
  • extend Elgg with keyword search in all Google documents

The plugin is based on the OAuth2 library provide by Google.


Example: Google Docs widget
