zc.buildout recipe that downloads and installs OpenOffice.org

Project description

This recipe download openoffice in your buildout, it can also (optional) create egg with pyuno and change the default python used by openoffice.

More info about Python UNO: http://udk.openoffice.org/python/python-bridge.html

We are using this to generate OpenOffice documents from zope/python

Buildout configuration:

Add this section to your buildout configuration:

[buildout]
parts =
    ... your other parts ...
    openoffice
...

[openoffice]
recipe = z3c.recipe.openoffice

This will just download and install openoffice in your buildout

To create the pyuno egg add the fallowing config:

[openoffice]
recipe = z3c.recipe.openoffice
install-pyuno-egg = yes

To also change openoffice python, add the following config:

[openoffice]
recipe = z3c.recipe.openoffice
install-pyuno-egg = yes
hack-openoffice-python = yes

By default it will fetch version OpenOffice 2.3 but you might want to install from another location or another version like this:

[openoffice]
recipe = z3c.recipe.openoffice
install-pyuno-egg = yes
hack-openoffice-python = yes
version = 2.3.1
download-url = ftp://ftp.openoffice.skynet.be/pub/ftp.openoffice.org/stable/2.3.1/OOo_2.3.1_LinuxIntel_install_en-US.tar.gz

Notes:

For this to work an OpenOffice process need to be running in background. As this require a X server and you don’t want to install a real X server in a production environment you might want to use Xvfb. Here are the lines we use to start openoffice:

$ cd myBuildout
$ Xvfb :3 -ac -screen sn 800x600x16 &
$ ./parts/openoffice/program/soffice "-accept=socket,host=localhost,port=2002;urp;" -display :3 &
$ ./bin/instance start

This recipe only works with linux at the moment
