What is OpenOffice.org?
For users, OpenOffice.org is the world's leading open-source office productivity suite. It has been downloaded more than 100 million times to date and reaches a broad audience across fields of applications, languages, and cultures.
For developers, OpenOffice.org is much more than that. OpenOffice.org provides a complete, open and free development platform that provides cross-platform compatibility and great extensibility.
With more than 7 million lines of code, 28 single projects, 100 localized languages, and around 1,000 contributors, OpenOffice.org is one of the world's leading open source community in terms of size, vibrancy, and vitality.
The OpenOffice.org Philosophy
We design and create, as a community, an easy to use and feature rich office suite running on all major platforms based on open standards like OpenDocument and XML.
UNO, you know!
Use web services to connect to the internet, use COM and OLE to connect to other applications on the system, or access system resources directly through CLI.
Share your Code
Share your code to the world with the OO-Snippets-Project – a code repository for developers on different components and different languages.
Whatever it is, C++, Java, Basic, or Python: you will be able to see how developers contribute day in and day out with different snippets of reusable code.
Extend, Expand and Customize
With the Extensions feature, you don't need a high level of understanding of the UNO API to start extending OOo into places you didn't think possible.
Use your own tools to expand functionality and even better, easily integrate with other applications you develop by using common standard protocols.The OpenOffice.org Extensions capability is so powerful that you can already find a growing body of commercial and free extensions in the OpenOffice.org Extension Repository.
ODF — Open Standard
Users create millions of documents using office software every day. Safeguard the future of these documents by using the power, flexibility and openness of Open Document Format (ODF). ODF was the first open and ISO standardized office document format. Use ODF and guarantee compatibility of your company's knowledge with future waves of technology.
OpenOffice.org comes with OpenOffice.org Basic, an object oriented language with which you can access components deep within the UNO API in the form of services.
The ease of use of OpenOffice.org Basic, combined with the power of the UNO API, creates an environment for both rapid and powerful development and integration.
Read the Fine Manual
Comprehensive documentation is available in the Developers' Guide explaining the internals of OpenOffice.org and hidden secrets of the powerful API. You are always welcome to the IRC development channel for 24x7 support, where experienced developers mentor newcomers.
The OpenOffice.org website also holds a complete list of support mailing lists for developers, on all components and all technologies. Join and participate in specialized technical conversations with experienced OpenOffice.org developers.
