Wollmux : open source tool for templates and forms

Postby henke54 » Wed Jul 25, 2012 9:31 am

More and more public administrations and enterprises are turning to Munich's Wollmux. This open source tool helps managing document templates and forms, including the insertion of standard texts taken from multiple sources. A workshop organised by the city of Munich earlier this month "drew more attendees than anticipated", reports Kirsten Böge, spokeswoman for Limux, Munich's Linux project.

The WollMux is an OpenOffice.org plugin with enhanced template, form, and autotext functionality. It can construct templates on the fly from multiple files (e.g. letterhead, footer, and body text) and will fill in personal and organizational data from various databases such as LDAP. An extra form GUI presents fields in an easily navigable manner and offers plausibility checks and computed values to ease filling in the form. Chainable printing functions allow various transformations during print and custom dialogs.

WollMux is licensed under the European Union Public Licence (EUPL - http://www.osor.eu/eupl).

The newly created Hungarian government's open source resource centre is piloting the use of Wollmux, a form management tool developed and used by the German city of Munich. It is contacting some of the country's public administrations to see if they're willing to participate in the tests.

The announcement was made this morning, at the LibreOffice conference, taking place in the Italian city of Milan. Gabor Kelemen, presenting the Hungarian open source resource centre, says Wollmux eases management and creation of document templates and office forms. "This centralized management of forms and templates was one of the two big concerns that we identified when talking to the early adopters of OpenOffice and LibreOffice in Hungary."

"Luckily, the German city of Munich also had this problem, and had already fixed it. In Munich, Wollmux has boosted the productivity of the city's users of the LibreOffice suite."
