Project description

Abstract

ezodf is a Python package to create new or open existing OpenDocument (ODF) files to extract, add, modify or delete document data.

a simple example:

from ezodf import newdoc, Paragraph, Heading, Sheet

odt = newdoc(doctype='odt', filename='text.odt')
odt.body += Heading("Chapter 1")
odt.body += Paragraph("This is a paragraph.")
odt.save()

ods = newdoc(doctype='ods', filename='spreadsheet.ods')
sheet = Sheet('SHEET', size=(10, 10))
ods.sheets += sheet
sheet['A1'].set_value("cell with text")
sheet['B2'].set_value(3.141592)
sheet['C3'].set_value(100, currency='USD')
sheet['D4'].formula = "of:=SUM([.B2];[.C3])"
pi = sheet[1, 1].value
ods.save()
