Python CFFI wrapper for LibreOfficeKit
A python CFFI wrapper for LibreOfficeKit. Tested in cpython2, cpython3, and pypy.
An installation of LibreOffice >= 4.3.0 is required on the same machine.
If you are using cpython you need libffi-dev in order to compile CFFI.
pip install pylokit
A basic conversion from a rtf file to a doc:
from pylokit import Office import os lo_path = "/path/to/libreoffice/program/dir" with Office(lo_path) as lo: with lo.documentLoad("myfile.rtf") as doc: doc.saveAs("myfile.doc") os._exit(0)
Same conversion passing an explicit format and filter options:
from pylokit import Office import os lo_path = "/path/to/libreoffice/program/dir" with Office(lo_path) as lo: with lo.documentLoad("myfile.rtf") as doc: doc.saveAs("myfile.doc", fmt="docx", options="skipImages") os._exit(0)
The usage of a context manager is needed to properly handle LibreOfficeKit file locking. The use of _exit() instead of default exit() is required because in some circumstances LibreOffice segfaults on process exit.
Project inspired by Olly Betts’ lloconv.
