Calligra Words generator for Okular



Some time ago i did create the ODP generator which allowed to view presentations in odp and other formats in Okular.  Back then I got lots of requests for a similar generator for text documents, but it couldn’t be done  back then as we didn’t have the needed functionality. As you can see below  that has changed now and I have started a new Okular generator that uses Calligra Words to render documents. I didn’t have a nice demonstration document around, but the full capability of Words can be used.

In the future that will allow Okular to show all the document types that Words can display like odt, doc and docx. Additionally this should provide provide a higher accuracy when rendering odt documents, while reducing code duplication.

    Considering that Okular is used in rekonq and avaiable as a Netscape plugin that’s really good news; so thanks! Okular is already installed by default on most distros (rightfully so, it’s much better than any other document reader that I know of), hopefully Callligra is on its way to being in a similar postion.

    It’d be cool if you could implement the text interface too 🙂
