ODF visualization using WebKit

,----[ Quote ]
| Today is day 1 of of the OdfKit Hack Week. 
| We wrote a list of things we want to 
| achieve this week. In order to avoid 
| embarrassment, we'll spare you the details 
| and go straight through to an explanation 
| of how you can use WebKit (or any modern 
| browser) to visualize ODF documents. The 
| general idea is to incorporate the ODF XML 
| into a live HTML document.


Last Week in KOffice â Week 24

| Google Summer of Code student Benjamin Port 
| was amazingly productive, making Thorsten 
| Zachmann, his mentor, very happy. Read his 
| blog! Benjamin is working on implementing 
| animation of objects on pages. This is a 
| huge task, since ODF incorporates the SMIL 
| standard for animations, and thatâs a big 
| document. Ben implemented support for SMIL 
| duration, translations and keytimes â and 
| fixed crash in page navigation. Another 
| thing Ben committed was a sophisticated 
| HTML export option for presentations.

Reform or not reform?

| ISO and other standards bodies did not 
| learn from the OOXML debate. Reform of ISO 
| is pending to allow more fast tracked 
| standards from ECMA. Procurement of OOXML 
| might be illegal in Europe.



OdfKit Hack Week starts

,----[ Quote ]
| OdfKit is a project that reuses WebKit
| technology in a toolkit for working with ODF
| office documents. KO GmbH is sponsored by
| NLnet to work on OdfKit for three months. This
| week, Chani, who is on her way to Akademy, is
| working with me on OdfKit and since she's here
| an entire week, we're calling it OdfKit Hack
| Week.
