AddOn for OpenOffice.org (and LibreOffice) to export documents to Google Docs, Zoho & WebDAV servers created byPrzemysław Rumik
OpenOffice.org2GoogleDocs (OOo2GD) is a plugin to OpenOffice.org/StarOffice (should work also with other Offices derived from OpenOffice.org) which will let you export and import your documents, spreadsheets and presentations to and from Google Docs, Zoho. It will let you also export your files to WebDAV servers and « synchronize » your documents, spreadsheets and presentations with Google Docs.
So, you can:
OOo2GD may work in English, Bulgarian, German. Polish, Russian, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Chines (Simplified), French, Czech, Hungarian. To change your language use Configuration window.
If you want to share your opinion about OOo2GD you may do it by filling this survey form:
Times change, and APIs change. So not all features work now 😦 Here short table showing what works:
|Document type||Upload as GD doc||Upload file||Update as GD doc||Update file||Open GD doc||Open file|
|Text document||OK||OK||OK||OK||Doesn’t work 😦||Doesn’t work|
|Presentation (as PPT)||OK||OK||OK||OK||Doesn’t work 😦||Doesn’t work|
|Drawings||N/A||OK||N/A||OK||Doesn’t work 😦||OK|
Autoupdate doesn’t work at all.
Where OOo2GD works for sure (I tested it personally):
|Windows 7||3 and 4||3.x|
You need to have Java installed to make OOo2GD work.
Ubuntu 9.10 users, please read #7 on KnownIssues.
Mac OS X users, please read MacOS_Support (it worked with OS X 10.4 aka Tiger, now it doesn’t work because Apple changed something in theirs Java, and now any of Java extensions for OO.org doesn’t work).
Easy way to export and import your documents from OpenOffice.org 2.0.4+ or StarOffice 8+ to Google Docs, Zoho & WebDAV servers.
To download it go to Downloads or to OOo2GD side in OpenOffice.org extensions repository
You will need Java 5 SE and OpenOffice.org 2+ or StarOffice 8+ (LibreOffice 3.3 and OO.org 3.3 works too, those OO.org 2+ and StarOffice 8+ are minimal versions needed to work with OOo2GD).
My first description (in polish) here.
