The new LibreOffice extensions website will be driven by a new Plone add-on (tdf.extensionuploadcenter). I released a new version of this add-on some days ago. I’m working on the localisation of this add-on yet. I already created a translation template file (*.pot) and compiled a localisation file from it. I used the latter for a translation of the strings to German (as proof of concept).
During the FrOSCon I worked on an update for the Plone add-on that will drive the New LibreOffice templates website. This update contains some aditional validations. I released it weithin the ‚Cheeseshop‘ today. The new version will be available on the testsite for the new LibreOffice extensions and templates repository within the next run of buildout.
I worked in some more validators inside the TDF.extensionuploadcenter during the last days. I published a new release of this Plone add-on today. It will be used inside the test-website for the new LibreOffice extension Website during the next days.
LibreOffice kann über Extensions mit weiteren Funktionen versehen werden. Die Extensions werden von freien Entwicklern beigesteuert, können über die LibreOffice-Extensions-Webseite heruntergeladen und in LibreOffice installiert werden. So findet sich dort auch eine Extension, mit der sich eine Writer-Textdatei in das Dateiformat epub exportieren lässt. So lassen sich auch elektronische Bücher (eBooks) aus LibreOffice heraus erstellen:
I started to work further on a LibreOffice educational portal again these days. This portal (website) was discussed during a work weekend of the German speaking community. I created a first very alpha version during and short after that weekend and set up a development website. The site is driven by Plone and a specific add-on. I got some time to work on this add-on further and got the add-on more i18n-friendly. The add-on is hosted on Github in the account of the Document Foundation:
I added also a new repository for the configuration etc. of a new LibreOffice education website, which brings me to eight hundred commits to Github during the last year 😉
I had to work around an issue with user add form in the LibreOffice templates wbsite and found a solution. I added the user within the Zope Management Interface (ZMI), edited the user, assigned him to a group and reset his password in administration interface later. That takes some extra effort, but in the end it works for now.
I added the necessary changes to the Plone add-on for the new LibreOffice template repository and created a new release out of it today. The new release is available in the ‚cheeseshop‘ at https://pypi.python.org/pypi/tdf.templateuploadcenter
I added some changes and fixes to the tdf.extensionuploadcenter during the last weeks and published a new release of this Plone add-on today in the ‚cheeseshop‘.
I’ll work on such fixes for the tdf.templateuploadcenter soonish and publish a release a new release of this add-on too.
I did the the next step to migrate the current LibreOffice extensions and templates site to a new Plone environment. I changed the multilanguage framework from LinguaPlone to the new plone.app.multilingual with Archetype support. The content of the site was reindexed after the change.
I worked on some test environment for an upgrade of the LibreOffice extensions and templates websites to the latest Plone 4 version during the last week. I had to find solutions for some issues. In the end the upgrade in my test instance were successful.
I worked on the current LibreOffice extensions and templates instance with my experience, that I got from the test instance today. I upgraded the Plone buildout from version 4.2.6 to 4.3.9. I had to fix an unexpected error during the upgrade of the instance zope database. Apart from this the upgrade runs smoothly. The LibreOffice extensions and templates websites are up again, running on Plone 4.3.9 for now.
The next step will be the change of the multilanguage framework to a newer Plone add-on.
