Project description

About tgextodt

tgextodt is a Pluggable application for TurboGears2 that allows the rendering of .odt (openoffice/libreoffice) documents as an output templates.

Installing

tgextodt can be installed both from pypi or from bitbucket:

pip install tgextodt

should just work for most of the users

Plugging tgextodt

In your application config/app_cfg.py import plug, then at the end of the file call plug with tgextodt:

from tgext.pluggable import plug
plug(base_config, 'tgextodt')

Usage

To use an odt template you have to declare the type in your controller as below:

@expose('odt:example.templates.about', content_type='application/vnd.oasis.opendocument.text')
def about(self):
    response.headerlist.append(('Content-Disposition', 'attachment;filename=filename.odt'))
    return dict(hello='Hello World')

obviously in your example application in the folder example/templates you should provide a templated named about.odt in wich you have defined the variable field py3o.document.hello.

To define a variable field in libreoffice you can dig more information on https://help.libreoffice.org/Writer/Variables basically from the menu Insert -> Fields -> Other -> Variables

For more complex features, like for loops and more detailed reporting stuff, you want to read the documentation of the py3o library itself http://py3otemplate.readthedocs.org/

Now you can directly download your output from /about or /about.odt
