LibreOffice Extensions and Templates Website Launched

The Document Foundation, following a six week public beta, has recently announced the availability of its new LibreOffice Extensions and Templates website. This website only accepts extensions and templates that are released under free software licenses, and everything is reviewed by community volunteers.

Florian Effenberger, member of TDF Board of Directors, at the TDF blog:

"This new website is one of the many community efforts at the LibreOffice project. Led by Andreas Mantke, a team of international community volunteers has worked hard during the past weeks to make this new repository possible, to the benefit of millions of LibreOffice and free office users worldwide.

We welcome everyone to try out the growing number of available extensions, and we invite developers to upload their own templates and plugins, to make them available to users worldwide."

LibreOffice Extensions are available here:

And the Templates here:

The availability of Extensions and Templates for LibreOffice would no doubt benefit its worldwide users. While browsing through the Extensions website, I noticed quite a few very useful extensions like 'Export as Images', spell-checking dictionaries for Russian, French and some other languages, spreadsheet-specific extensions, etc., but this stuff probably needs a dedicated post.

The LibreOffice Extensions and Templates repositories are based on Plone, and allow users to search them using keywords and sort the results based on ratings, numbers of downloads, dates added, etc.
