So my boss asked me to research and find a good plugin or software package to use as a document repository. The list of things we need it to do is this:
-- must integrate with Atlassian Confluence ver. 2.5
-- must have built in revision control (preferably using svn)
-- must have a client easy to use whether on a mac or pc
-- must support binary and text docs
-- must be able to work on documents offline
-- should be fast, easy to use, and not add a lot of overhead to the user
-- should be free, easy to maintain, and server side repositories able to reside on mac server
Just wondering if anybody had any suggestions. I see there's an unsupported Confluence attachment checkout plugin, but it doesn't appear to support SVN.
I think what you're basically doing is trying to find a free replacement for that anyway, that will pull in your existing (paid for) confluence wiki. I suspect you won't have much luck, since such a free product would eat into sales of the studio poduct I'd imagine atlassian are doing their damndest to make such a thing difficult if not impossible to produce.
If you can start again I'd recommend redmine. It does pretty much everything Atlassian studio does (wiki, bug tracking, document managent, subversion repositories, time management, extensible through plugins etc etc) but it's free and open-source. I started using it a few months ago and it's an amazingly well built and integrated product.
