Taming the LibreOffice Help System

LibreOffice’s help system needs to evolve and be more effective for users.

LibreOffice’s help system was designed in 2003-2004 and released in 2005. Since then it has not evolved, except for the introduction of an online version hosted in a wiki server (and accessible from LibreOffice when the local help is not installed).

I worked recently to transform our ancient help system into a modern browser-based version. The partial result is available in the (temporary) website at https://helponline.libreoffice.org – please be advised that this is still work in progress.

The XML help pages are transformed into pure, almost static and responsive HTML. This approach has some advantages:

  • Works in every browser
  • Provides the current functionality of the help system
  • Preserves the current development, help authoring, release engineering and translation process as it is
  • You can read the help pages in your mobile phone or tablet
  • It’s easy to add extra markup for better search engine indexing

The disadvantage is an increase in disk storage on the server.

Transforming XML into HTML for every browser

The help pages were designed when the minimal standard HTML was version 3.2 and, since then, many developments have brought us HTML5 in all major browsers. There is little advantage now to keep the current XML, and all of its designed functionality can be replaced and improved by HTML, CSS and JavaScript, for example, adding better navigation and multimedia contents.

The new Help page layout benefits of many modern technologies

Help system functionalities preserved

By using cascaded style sheets (CSS) and JavaScript, it was possible to emulate and preserve the functionality for the offline help system.

Mobile use

You may question why desktop software needs a help system that fits in a mobile phone or tablet. Actually, the online help pages can not only be opened by LibreOffice in your desktop browser, but also be a LibreOffice reference for other uses – such as simple web surfing and responses to a web search.

Help system in a mobile phone?

Searching from the web

Many of us are familiar with the fact that pages returned by a search mechanism depends on careful configuration of the HTML pages. That domain of search engine optimization (SEO) is an open avenue for improvements in the way we write help content and use the right configuration. Opinions and advises are welcome from the community. As a start,
the online help contains a set of microdata from schema.org under the TechArticle schema.

The road ahead for LibreOffice help

Still, a better solution for the LibreOffice help may be found. The main issue remains in finding a better tool to comfortably edit the XML, and make it easy to add multimedia and other content. Editing XML files is not a fun job for most of us, and is done in text editors or the old Help Authoring extension. Here two approaches are possible to ease the authoring job:

Improve the Help Authoring extension to handle the improvements for LibreOffice help contents (eg multimedia), or progressively move to pure HTML(5), to benefit of the hundreds of WYSIWYG HTML editors available either online and offline…

Help Authoring extension installed in LibreOffice Writer

The Help Authoring extension is installed in LibreOffice to allow page editing in Writer. It has the advantage of performing lots of XML checks, but at the same time it becomes a challenge to modernize its set of BASIC macros, XSLT transformations and styles.

On the other hand, the strategy is to progressively add new pure-HTML tags in the XML DTD (Document Type Definition), slowly and carefully phasing out some of the complex markup of the current XML. As example, the current XML tag

<paragraph id=”hd_id3147331″ role=”heading” level=”1″ xml-lang=”en-US”>

can be replaced by well known HTML

<h1 id=”hd_id3147331″>

tag because we already know that role=”heading” and level=”1” uniquely means <h1> and xml-lang is not used any more. A partial map of XHP tags to HTML5 can be found here.


We want to make our help application more user-friendly, providing modern content and being a reference for LibreOffice on the web. The new online help layout is a step in this direction, but much more is to be done and the LibreOffice community is invited to help us. Get involved today!

As any other proprietary technology, DRM is killing user freedom of choice, and should always be avoided.

openSUSE.Asia Summit 2017 Tokyo will be welcoming LibreOffice people also ;)

Dear Asian LibreOffice folks,

Finally, the official announcement of openSUSE.Asia Summit 2017 Tokyo has been published! It will take place at the University of Electro-Communications, Tokyo, Japan on October 21 and 22.

I think it is wonderful that openSUSE people have their own annual event in Asia, and I proud to have an opportunity to help them.

LibreOffice is a quite different from linux distro like openSUSE because it is a consumer product; most users aren't tech people nor computer geeks and they use it with their own languages only (yes, it is one of LibreOffice projects' goal to use it with our mother tongue), however, I believe that we, Asian LibreOffice people, might have something to collaborate even we use different languages.

So, please mark October 21 and 22 on your calendar to come, and prepare to submit nice LibreOffice talks. CfP will be published soon, then I will share here.

See you in Tokyo!

Can I configure odf-report?

I'm struggling with odf-report under Rails. I created some 50 templates with placeholders in LibreOffice. Now I try to fill these placeholders with data from my application as shown in the documentation. Problem: odf-report recognizes a placeholder at square brackets ("[" and "]"). However, LibreOffice creates placeholders surrounded by pointed braces ("<" and ">"). So, odf-report doesn't replace anything. Can I configure odf-report to fill my LibreOffice placeholder with data? If so, how do I do that?

However, the result is that ALL mock-images are replaced by chart04.png?

The images chart01,02,03,04.png are available and are all different. Is there something I overlooked? thnx!

Qué es la GDPR, LOPD y como afecta a tu empresa (ESP)

Qué es la GDPR, LOPD y como afecta a tu empresa (ESP) admindocxp Sun, 06/25/2017 - 23:47

El nuevo Reglamento General de Protección de Datos (RGPD o GDPR) en España, ¿como te afecta como empresa?:

1. ¿Qué es el RGPD / GDPR?:

El Reglamento General de Protección de Datos es un reglamento, de obligado cumplimiento, que regula todos los datos de carácter personal que utilizamos, ya que, por la vida que llevamos, internet (redes sociales, compras, viajes, gustos, vídeos, etc), cámaras de vigilancia, etc nuestros datos personales pueden estar al alcance de muchas personas, por ello, su regulación.

El Reglamento (RGPD o en inglés GDPR) es para proteger los derechos sobre el uso de los datos de carácter personal utilizados por cualquier persona física o jurídica. De forma que hay que definir medidas para garantizar el derecho a saber cómo se gestionan sus datos personales (tanto la inclusión como el borrado de estos).

2. ¿Cuando entre en Vigor?:

El Reglamento ya está en vigor y debe estar plenamente implantado antes del 25 de mayo de 2018, pudiendo, ser sancionados aquellos empresarios y empresas que no lo cumplan (20 millones de euros como máximo o, cuando sea una empresa, la cuantía equivalente al 4% como máximo del volumen de negocio total anual global del ejercicio financiero anterior, optándose por la de mayor cuantía.). ¿Está tu empresa preparada?. ¿No lo has hecho todavía? Docxpresso te puede ayudar con la gestión de los datos para cumplir la normativa (http://docxpresso.com/).

3. ¿Cómo Afecta el Reglamento (RGPD) en la L.O.P.D. (Ley Orgánica sobre Protección de Datos) Española?:

Todas las materias sobre protección de datos se unifican a nivel europeo para así reforzar la seguridad jurídica y facilitar su gestión a nivel burocrático, no más papeleo. Docxpresso te ayuda con la digitalización de los datos de tu empresa: http://saas.docxpresso.com/es

A partir del 25 de mayo de 2018 el nuevo reglamento (RGPD) europeo tiene que estar aplicado en España de manera simultánea al resto de normas en materia de protección de datos: LOPD + RGPD.

  • A quién le aplica: están obligados las sociedades, autónomos, comunidades, asociaciones y Administración Pública establecidos en la Unión Europea, y, los que estén fuera, estarán obligados aquellos que sus servicios se dirijan hacia residentes en la Unión Europea.
  • Cifrado: las empresas pueden elegir entre dos opciones:
    • Un sistema profesional de cifrado robusto.
    • O bien el espectro ensanchado  (la información no podrá ser manipulada por terceros y será ininteligible).
  • Fisura en la Protección de Datos: cuando el responsable de seguridad detecte una fisura en la protección deberán notificarlo en un plazo máximo de 72 horas a la Asociación Española de Protección de Datos (AEPD).

4. Descarga de los ficheros:

Con el nuevo Reglamento (RGPD) los responsables y encargados de tratamiento harán un registro de actividad de tratamiento internamente, por lo que, no hay que inscribirlos en la Asociación Española de Protección de Datos (AEPD).

5. ¿Que novedades conlleva el Reglamento?:

  • A partir del 28 de mayo de 2018 cuando vayamos a recoger datos personales deberemos entregar mucha más información que la que se ha dado hasta ahora: deberemos dar un consentimiento expreso por escrito; en el caso de los menores de 16 años serán los padres o tutores legales los que firmarán dicho consentimiento.
  • La implantación del Reglamento hará que el Responsable del Tratamiento deberá cumplir todos los principios aplicables, demostrando su cumplimiento, por lo que deben ser responsable proactivos (adelantarnos siempre a los problemas no a resolverlos una vez detectados).
  • Otra novedad es que la empresa tendrá más libertad para la implantación de las nuevas medidas de seguridad decidiendo que modelos, medidas técnicas y de organización aplicarán para tener un alto nivel de seguridad.
  • Aparece una Ventanilla Única para poder reclamar la vulneración de nuestros derechos.
  • Nueva Figura: Delegado de Protección de Datos (DPO); esté Delegado informará, asesorará y supervisará a los Responsables y Encargados de Tratamiento de las protecciones de Datos.
  • Aparece el Derecho al olvido o borrado de datos; se solicitará este derecho cuando el particular considere que sus datos ya no tiene validez para el organismo que los recogió o atenten contra su imagen.

6. Enlaces de Interés para Profundizar más sobre el Reglamento:

Best Mastodon client that supports multiple accounts I found so far for Android is Subway Tooter (jp.juggler.subwaytooter). If you don't use Google Play but F-Droid it's also available from the IzzyOnDroid F-Droid Repository.

Unlike in the web client you can choose which account to use when you toot, boost, reply, follow, favourite or send a message, where otherwise the web client uses the account on the server you happen to be logged in.
