Cross-platform LibreOffice document conversion and printing

Project description

LibreOffice Utils

Actions Status PyPi versions PyPi Download stats

Headless (command line) operations on Word, Excel, Powerpoint and most other formats LibreOffice can handle for:

  • Doc => PDF conversion (LibreOffice only)
  • printing (to the system default printer only)

from Python command line using LibreOffice or Microsoft Word

.doc / .docx to PDF conversion

Convert a directory of .doc / .docx to .pdf by:

doc2pdf ~/Documents

Printing

CAUTION:

The doc2print.py script can print an unlimited number of pages to an unwanted printer, possibly causing great expense or violation of private documents to a public printer. Use great care with these scripts, preferably to a local non-networked printer you are sitting next to.

doc2print ~/mydocs

The -exe parameter allows selecting the printing program. The script does not check that the files can be printed appropriately, it just prints. Thus use the -s parameter to select only the suffixes wanted. For example to print all Markdown files in a directory with Notepad++:

doc2print ~/mydocs -s .md -exe notepad++

Notes

LibreOffice

Since the command-line globbing of LibreOffice conversion is broken, this program provides a sane workaround for mass document conversion using LibreOffice. LibreOffice is not thread-safe, so documents are converted or printed one at a time.
