Export Writer documents into any wiki format

Filed under
HowTos

One of the most welcome additions to OpenOffice.org 2.3 is a new export filter that allows you to save Writer documents as MediaWiki-formatted pages. That's all fine and dandy if you are using MediaWiki, but what about other wiki systems? The answer to this question comes in the form of the OpenOffice2UniWakka export filter. While it's designed to work with the UniWakka wiki, with a bit of hacking you can adapt it to other wiki systems as well, even if you are not familiar with XML and XSLT.

The OpenOffice2UniWakka filter itself consists of the OD2UniWakka.xslt file (or OOo2UniWakka.xslt, if you are still using OpenOffice.org 1.x.x). You can think of this file as a simple conversion program written in XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations), "an XML-based language used for the transformation of XML documents into other XML or human-readable documents." Since the content of an .odt document is stored as an XML file, XSLT is a perfect tool for transforming Writer documents into wiki-formatted text files.

To start hacking the OpenOffice2UniWakka filter, download its latest version from UniWakka's main page and unpack it.

And this is the case of GNOME Control Center, which was recently updated to version 3.21.90, which means 3.22 Beta. Read more
