'Intended Audience :: Developers'
- the "recipes" folder contains more than 50 working sample scripts,
- the "scripts" folder contains some useful scripts (like style management),
- the "doc" folder contains auto generated documentation.
styles: the best way to apply style is by merging styles from a template document into your generated document. See odfdo-style.py in "scripts" folder.
odfdo is intended to facilitate the generation of ODF documents, nevertheless a basic knowledge of the ODF format is necessary.
ODF document rendering can vary greatly from software to software. In particular the "styles" of the document allow an adaptation of the rendering for a particular software.
the best (only ?) way to apply style is by merging styles from a template document into your generated document. See odfdo-style.py in "scripts" folder.
