This is a collection of utility programs written in Python to manipulate OpenDocument files. How to proceed: Each application has its own directory. In there, look at the manual pages. The Python-based tools need the odf library. Just make a symbolic link like this: ln -s ../odf odf ... or type: make For your own use of the odf library, see api-for-odfpy.odt -o- INSTALLATION -o- First you get the package. $ svn export https://svn.forge.osor.eu/svn/odfpy/trunk odfpy $ python setup.py build $ su # python setup.py install The library is incompatible with PyXML. -o- TODO / IDEAS -o- * html2odf Alex Hudson has been contracted to produce a command-line html2odf converter. It should include support for images, tables, CSS, etc. He will provide a C# version first, and later a C version. * odf2pdf A valuable tool, but one that is hard to do. PDF is an immensely popular format, but it's tricky to make PDFs. With an odf2pdf tool available, many developers would use ODF purely for the purpose of generating a PDF later. The latest idea is to hire KOffice developers and get them to trim down KOffice into a converter. * pdf2odf This conversion is less likely to produce good results, but it might be worth a shot. Poppler is a pdf library that can convert PDF into XML. Maybe we can convert that XML to ODF. http://webcvs.freedesktop.org/poppler/poppler/ * odfclean A command-line program that removes unused automatic styles, metadata and track-changes. Some companies might like to send all out-going files through odfclean to remove any information they don't want others to see. * odf2xliff Create XLIFF extraction and merge application. XLIFF is a OASIS file for translations. You extract the text strings, send them to the translator and then import them. It allows you to work on the document in the meantime and only retranslate the changed parts. * odfdiff A program that can generate a diff between two ODF files. Useful for SVN commit messages. This is very difficult to do. But see: http://www.manageability.org/blog/stuff/open-source-xml-diff-in-java/view http://freshmeat.net/projects/xmldiff/ * odfsign Sign and verify the signature(s) of an ODF document.
