Etherpad allows you to edit documents collaboratively in real-time, much like a live multi-player editor that runs in your browser. Write articles, press releases, to-do lists, etc. together with your friends, fellow students or colleagues, all working on the same document at the same time.

Consider using Etherpad as an alternative to Google Docs. Registration is not required.

Public instances

The following lists are based on a list in the GitHub repository's list and a list on Framapad. I went through each of the instances to find out which plugins are supported.

Note: Many of these instances use French as their primary language. Some of the instances with English language support include Disroot,, Framapad, LibreOps, Riseup, Snopyta, and Wikimedia.
