Lately I have been watching at the OpenDocument scene and it’s development within PHP. So far I have detected 3 libraries/classes on handling OpenDocument and all of them are rather young. Here are the following:
- OpenDocWriter by Jose Manuel Sanchez Rivero
- PHP-OpenDocument Library by Adam Mill
- PEAR OpenDocuments by Alexander Pak
First thing I want to know is the XML parser that they use and the logic they implement. I also want to analyze the support on image handling, OpenDocument alternative like Presentation, Draw and Base. The logic implemented on the creation of lists, tables, frames and nested elements.
