Lightweight python module to allow extracting text from OpenDocument (odt) files.

Project description

Lightweight python module for extracting raw text from OpenDocument (odt) files.

Linux, macOS and Windows platforms supported.

Just point at the file with the .odt extension and let it print it out for you.


$ pip install odtreader


You can simply use it by calling the odtToText() function. The file is parsed and the text returned to you as a unicode object.


from ODTReader.odtreader import odtToText

text = odtToText("path/to/file.odt")

It can also be used as a command line utility.


$ python path/to/file.odt
This is the contents of the odt file!

$ python path/to/file.odt -o outfile.txt
Contents written to 'outfile.txt'

Version Support

This module only supports Python 2.7 as of now.


GNU GPL v3.0 License, see LICENSE file.
