Collabora Office Android app gory details

How we tweaked LibreOffice & the Online to get an Android app
UB4.136
Jan Holesovsky
The LibreOffice Android app consists of the LibreOffice core as the native code and Java part that takes care of compositing of the tiles, input handling, etc. It is hard to maintain, because everything that has been implemented in LibreOfficeKit for the Online has to be ported to Java - which is a huge amount of work. For the Collabora Office Android app, we have tried a new approach - to build on top of work pioneered by Tor Lillqvist for iOS: Using the native code for the rendering, the Online JavaScript for the composition of tiles, input handling, etc. and only a thin Java layer to instantiate a WebView where the JS lives. Come and see the current state! And don't worry, all the work is contributed back to the LibreOffice code too :-)

A good grasp of C is rather useful when it comes to improving LibreOffice. However, in the project there are vital roles and tasks that do not involve writing C . This talk explores these other ways of contributing.

LibreOffice has builtin support for working with encrypted documents since a long time (with some recent improvements adding OpenPGP support). Further support for more fine-grained control of what a user can do with access-restricted documents was though missing. Come and see what recent improvements we implemented for LibreOffice 6.4 and 6.5, to permit fine-grained access controls to individual LibreOffice documents, matching the feature set of MS Rights Management Solution.

Styles are the essence of a text processor. And while experts love to unleash the power of LibreOffice Writer, it’s at the same time a major source of nuisance. In particular when you receive documents from other people, it can be quite difficult to understand the applied formatting and to fix issues around. This talk presents two ideas for an improved feedback.

LibreOffice is free and open source office suite software that is very popular today. LibreOffice is almost used in various user segments, ranging from personal, community, education, and even companies. It would be very interesting to be able to have LibreOffice specific themes for each segment. For this reason, we (LibreOffice Indonesia Community) took the initiative to create a special extension to manage themes in LibreOffice, we call it LO-TC (read: Lotis) LibreOffice Theme Changer.
