I'm looking for a document collaboration solution that allows edits by password only.


I want to be able to create a text document online, and be able to share with others.

They should be able to EDIT the document with a password only - no signup, login, that junk.

That said, this service would have some kind of browser based editor to make that possible.


Anybody have any recommendations?

The more bare-bones the better.

I'd be willing to pay for an "admin" account.


I'm pretty sure what I'm looking for is NOT Sharepoint, Dropbox, Evernote, Zoho, Google Docs.


Is there maybe some heroku deployment that would take care of this, maybe a HTML based editor within a password protected directory?


Alright, thanks. Just want to be able to keep a text file in the cloud and edit it without forcing clients to use *whatever service it is* and have ANOTHER login. Just a password...


Thanks ~

Maybe this will interest you:




Microsoft’s Office 365 consists of Web versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Lync, and SharePoint. The package is aimed at businesses whose employees are accustomed to using Microsoft applications, and a subscription costs $6 per month, per user. The next version of Office 365, announced in July, will target consumers as well as businesses; and it will be designed to run on tablets as well as on desktop and laptop PCs. Although Microsoft has not announced pricing for the new version of Office 365, the company has stated that a subscription to the service will include licenses to install Microsoft’s Office 2013 suite on up to five devices. Priced right, it could be a fabulous value.


The Winner

Office 365 takes the crown in this category, especially for business users. Of the three services we evaluated, only Microsoft’s encrypts your files both in transit and in storage. Most consumers can get by with either Google Drive or Zoho. Google Drive is the best service for iPad users, because it works so well with the Safari Web browser.

I could be wrong, but I don't think there is anything out there that is cloud + password only.
