Some colleagues and I were talking this morning and someone asked what open sourceprojects were going on at SourceForge. So we decided to take a look. Here are four searches where you can examine the same lists we saw for SourceForge and Code Projects:
- SourceForge search for ‘ODF’
- SourceForge search for ‘OpenDocument’
- Google Code Projects search for ‘ODF’
- Google Code Projects search for ‘OpenDocument’
These lists will change over time and the SourceForge list, in particular, will increase once our ODF/accessibility contest gets into Phase 2. In the meanwhile, here are links to a few of the ones that intrigued me: docvert, perlodfconv, AODL, OpenDocumentPHP, Opyo ( !), ODF Add-in for Microsoft Word (this is the one that is sponsoring), odfgrep, and pdf2oo. There are others; I just picked a few. I’m not endorsing any of them, but they might be worth a look if you need what they do. The MS project in particular has provoked a fair amount of controversy.
There are other open source projects involving ODF as well. the list of applications at the OpenDocument Fellowship. Many of those are open source. (Incidentally, the OpenDocument Fellowship website is looking really good these days.)comes immediately to mind. You should also take a look at
