OMERO as Nextcloud Application running on Docker


I was wondering if OMERO in general, or OMERO.web could be integrated into the Nextcloud as an application.
We use a Nextcloud Docker Container on a University Server in the Würzburg Imaging Group for data exchange.
It might be interesting to combine that.
Further, we intent to run a test omero.server container next to the nextcloud container on the same server.
Maybe you have a better suggestion to install a closer communication between both, instaed of a OMERO.web app in nextcloud.
I am happy about any kind of response.

Kind regards and greetings to the CIC-Research Group

Hi Johannes

You’re probably aware of this, but for the benefit of everyone else the OME provides production Docker images for OMERO.server and OMERO.web:

For convenience you can use Docker-compose:

What are the requirements for integrating an application into Nextcloud?

Thank you very much for your reply.
I very much appreciate the OMERO docker container. I think this are very smart solution and we are about to testing the different container you mentioned.
However, I was curious if omero.web, omero.server could also run as an APP in nextcloud like this:
, as we use nextcloud for file exchange and group organization.
Nextcloud use’s MariaDB, therefore directly running a OMERO.server within nextcloud would be complex, but maybe OMERO.web could be integrated.
It might be interesting also in face of the popularity to set up a nextcloud app.

Kind regards


Hi @JohannesBalkenhol

That is certainly interesting. We do not have much experience with nextcloud and we also have very limited bandwidth at the moment.

Do you have experience in setting up an nextcloud app?


Hi @j.burel ,

thank you for your fast response. I am more slow in response.
Unfortunatelly, I have no experience in setting up a nextcloud app.
But, we ll see how this develops in future.



Keep us posted!
