How to install

On Ubuntu 14.04

Install libreoffice, uno library and python3:

$ sudo aptitude install -y libreoffice libreoffice-script-provider-python uno-libs3 python3-uno python3

I like virtualenvwrapper to make temporary environment:

$ sudo aptitude install -y virtualenvwrapper
$ mkvirtualenv -p /usr/bin/python3.4 --system-site-packages tmp3

Confirm importing uno module:

(tmp3)$ python

[GCC 4.8.2] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import uno

Install unotools from PyPI:

(tmp3)$ pip install unotools

How to use

Startup libreoffice:

(tmp3)$ soffice --accept='socket,host=localhost,port=8100;urp;StarOffice.Service'

Download sample-scripts from

(tmp3)$ python sample-scripts/ -s localhost
(tmp3)$ python sample-scripts/ -s localhost -d sample-scripts/datadir/
