Python CFFI wrapper for LibreOfficeKit

Project description

<h1>pylokit</h1>

<p>A python CFFI wrapper for LibreOfficeKit. Tested with both cpython2 and cpython3,
need confirmation but should work fine in pypy too.</p>

<h2>Requirements</h2>

<p>An installation of LibreOffice >= 4.3.0 is required on the same machine</p>

<h2>Installation</h2>

<p><code>bash
pip install pylokit
</code></p>

<h2>Example</h2>

<p>A basic conversion from a rtf file to a doc:
```python
from pylokit import Office</p>

<p>lo_path = "/path/to/libreoffice/program/dir"</p>

<p>lo = Office(lo_path)
doc = lo.documentLoad("myfile.rtf")
doc.saveAs("myfile.doc")
```</p>

<p>Same conversion passing an explicit format and filter options:
```python
from pylokit import Office</p>

<p>lo_path = "/path/to/libreoffice/program/dir"</p>

<p>lo = Office(lo_path)
doc = lo.documentLoad("myfile.rtf")
doc.saveAs("myfile.doc", fmt="docx", options="skipImages")
```</p>
