Alternatively, the source code may be used under the terms of the GNU General Public License, version 3 or later. Authors ======= Source code: 2005 - 2016 Harri Pitkänen (firstname.lastname@example.org) Icon: 2011 Tarja Lindfors (email@example.com) Porting status ============== - Linux: This is the primary development platform, and should always work - Other platforms: The extension is platform independent Python code and should work as long as libvoikko is available for the platform. Platform identifiers to be used as directory names for native libraries on some of the common platforms are: Windows (64 bit): Windows-64bit-WindowsPE Windows (32 bit): Windows-32bit-WindowsPE Requirements ============ - LibreOffice 4.1 or later (must come with Python 3 or later) - Libvoikko version 3.8.1 or later. - Make, sed, find and zip for packaging. Instructions for packaging ========================== - Install all of the required software listed above. - Run "make oxt". This will build the extensions package voikko.oxt under subdirectory build. * There are some settings available that can be used to customize the build. Please see "build settings" in Makefile. You may change any of these settings by running "make VARIABLE=value" instead of "make". Supported Make targets ====================== - extension-files Builds the extension files under build/oxt. - oxt Builds the extensions package voikko.oxt under subdirectory build. - all Same as 'oxt'. - install-unpacked DESTDIR=some_directory Installs the unpacked extension under directory DESTDIR. Default for DESTDIR is /usr/lib/libreoffice-voikko. - dist-gzip Builds the source package. - clean Removes all files generated by other targets. Diagnostic tools ================ Setting environment variable PYUNO_LOGLEVEL=ARGS before starting LibreOffice causes debug information from PyUNO to be printed to stderr. Setting environment variable VOIKKO_DEBUG to any value before starting LibreOffice causes debug output from this extension to be printed to stderr. To debug possible initialization errors in production builds, try listing spelling suggestions for string "VoikkoGetStatusInformation". This will return a string that contains all successfully initialized languages and failed initializations along with error messages from libvoikko. Bug reports and patches ======================= Patches and bug reports can be sent to the author (firstname.lastname@example.org). The web site for libreoffice-voikko is located at https://voikko.puimula.org Change history ============== Version 2.0 was an almost total rewrite of the previous version 1.2. This version was designed to work well with libvoikko and aimed to use the best current practices for OpenOffice.org extension development. The old code was based on the internals of OpenOffice.org 1.0 and designed to work with a non-free Finnish spellchecking library. Version 3.0 added support for grammar checking. Version 3.2 added support for spell checking in languages other than Finnish. Version 4.0 extended support for grammar checkers and hyphenators to any language. The license was changed from GPL to MPL. Version 5.0 changed the implementation language from C++ to Python in order to make the extension code platform independent. For more detailed changes since 2.0 see ChangeLog.
