Postby vladboscaneanu » Fri May 12, 2017 1:36 pm

Hi to all.
I am developing an extension for LibreOffice (only).
May I put a direct link to this topic, so the user directly from the menu will able to access it?
I mean a kind of support page, for feedback (of course temporarily, extension site is under construction)
If answer is affermative, I will soon add the description and a guide.
Thanks in advance.

Hi to all.
The version 1.0.3 is available.
As before ,the main place to download extension is LibreOffice Extensions site.
However , here is a copy of extension:
--for most cases a user variant will work
--if you have problems,trying to start extension, then use an admin variant.
Due to Openoffice uploaded files size limitations, I can't attach the help file.Feel free to download it
from github,or from LibreWeb menu.

Please report for any bugs or incorrect work.

Features added with version 1.0.3

1.Import web settings
Now you can import the libreweb.data file with a previously inserted web settings.
So, if someone wants to make portable settings,made with LibreWeb all you need is
-libreweb.data file
-the Calc document,or another with the same name.

2.Export web settings
To transfer web settings ,made with LibreWeb, just export created libreweb.data,
then import it on another machine.

3.Check SSL module
Unfortunately some version of LibreOffice comes with a broken ssl module.
Due to this issue, the LibreWeb may works incorrect.
To check the integrity of installed ssl module,just use this command.

4.Check for updates
The version 1.0.3 comes with an important feature: update module.
Ever each week LibreWeb will check for new updates, it is also possible to do
this manually, using this command.

5.Download help file
You can download the last version of Help.pdf from github.

6.Menu icons from font-awesome
To improve user experience with LibreWeb, now each menu item has
a icon from font-awesome.

A small example
You want to get the titles of last updated topics from 3 selected sections Base, Extension and Calc.
Just import libreweb.data, then open example1 calc file and run Start service.

A more powerful example.
Using web-data to do some calculations.
In the zip file there are 2 files:
-- a Calc document
--LibreWeb web-settings file (libreweb.data)
I made a small table, where will import data from italian Stock Exchange.
real_time.PNG

For first , open your Calc file.
Then, from LibreWeb menu , import settings file (Import web settings ).
After just run Start Service.
In a few seconds the cells on column Current value will be filled with real-time prices of these items.
Of course on the working time of italian Stock Exchange.
Feel free to type every number of shares on Shares nr. to got a Total.
Feel free to update the sheet as many times as you want, just re-run Start Service again.
At this moment there is a limitation:
--LibreWeb works incorrectly with variable type Double, so the imported numbers will be Integer, as type.
I hope to solve this soon, in a next realise.
Good day to all!
