Project description


This project is strictly for LibreOffice python projects that need to set UNO environment.

oooenv -h


In Linux and Mac all that is needed to run a project that requires LibreOffice UNO is to link the UNO files into virtual environment.

To add UNO links to virtual environment run command:

oooenv cmd-link -a

To remove UNO links from virtual environment run command:

oooenv cmd-link -r


Windows python projects cannot use linking to UNO Files.

In Windows the virtual environment configuration file is manipulated.

The Follow command toggles between original configuration and UNO environment configuration.

oooenv env -t

To update the configuration to match the installed version of LibreOffice's python.

This command should not be run until oooenv env -t has be run at least once.

oooenv update --update

If virtual environment is managed by Poetry then it will be necessary to toggle into original config before running poetry update.

When updates are done just run command again to toggle back to UNO environment configuration.
