Collabora Online will be shipped out of the box with Nextcloud Hub in version 19. A special community server has been developed which dramatically eases the work required for installation, avoiding the need for web server configuration, docker containers and more.
Note that Collabora online is the default document collaboration platform due to its integration with Talk. ONLYOFFICE is still an available option and is working in this area to bring similar capabilities.
