Creating published libraries

Formalizing and structuring knowledge within an organization and thus making it easily communicable becomes quite simple with them. With its published libraries, luckycloud offers an ideal complement to its file sharing features. luckycloud's public libraries make team collaboration even easier.

Published Libraries + Sync & Share = Maximum Collaboration

The success of Wikipedia proves: public libraries are ideally suited for encyclopedias. But not only for that. The open and intuitive way in which information is recorded, processed and linked in them also makes them suitable for documenting other, less structured data. Work processes and instructions, how-to guides, and FAQs are just three examples of applications in which published libraries play to their strengths as practical knowledge containers.


luckycloud's public libraries can be used equally for internal knowledge management and for publishing information intended for the general public.
Publishing a library is done with one click - and, if necessary, undone. Editing articles in a published library is easy thanks to the integrated

Editing of the Markdown files is done via the integrated Markdown editor. Even inexperienced wiki authors will get along with it right away. Formatting changes can be can be executed - as in Office editors - via corresponding icons in the graphical user interface. The formatted text is displayed directly as such. The luckycloud editor can do even more: tables can be conveniently created and edited via wizards, images can be edited directly in the browser, and the version history of files can be displayed in color thanks to the integrated diff function. can be displayed in color thanks to the integrated Diff function.

As text-based documents, the Markdown files can also be displayed and edited without luckycloud's Markdown editor using simple text editors on all platforms. Formatting problems with cross-platform use, as they often occur with binary formats such as DOCX, do not exist with Markdown.
