According to and Wikipedia, Openleaf uses the ShareLaTeX
collaborative editing environment, which is open-source (AGPL), although
Openleaf itself is proprietary. That's allowed since Overleaf acquired the
rights to ShareLaTeX last year, but they promised to keep ShareLaTeX
open-source. Is anyone familiar with ShareLaTeX? Is it practical for users
to use ShareLaTex on its own?
