Description phmadore 2009-08-29 17:44:00 UTC
There is a new open-source program which is geared towards producing epub
documents professionally. It's called Sigil. I think that OpenOffice should
integrate with this feature as soon as possible. It would be great to have an
"Export to Epub" feature right next to the famous "Export to PDF" one. Using
code or methods or whatever from Calibre, OOo could also convert to .mobi and
.lrf. Ebooks are the future and if one of the world's most popular word
processors got on this boat early then I think we'd see yet another spike in

Reassigned to requirements.
Comment 2 tuharsky 2010-04-09 14:00:44 UTC
Taking in account the growing body of eBook readers, eBook industry and
infrastructure for independent authors, it could be really handy to have OOo
export support such cool as the PDF one already is.

Please, take also look at this individual export project in order to decide,
whether there is some possibility of cooperation or code reusage with this

@tuharsky: may be you should first discuss the chances of implementation on and then write a specification on the Wiki instead of
writing issues for something which might not be implemented...?
Comment 5 tuharsky 2010-04-09 15:24:53 UTC
es: Well, that's for sure another possible, yet a bit more complicated way of
recording the feature ideas :-)

I expect this a dead end issue but I must agree (on both counts) agree with tuharsky. The ability to import from and export to EPUB file format should be on the table for future implementation.

If integrate - only via extension.
