Subject [jira] [Created] (COR-38) Create ODF Text filter
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2015 19:07:12 GMT
Peter Kelly created COR-38:

             Summary: Create ODF Text filter
                 Key: COR-38
             Project: Corinthia
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: DocFormats - ODF filter
            Reporter: Peter Kelly

Along with OOXML (specifically .docx), ODF (specifically .odt) is an important format for
DocFormats to support. Implementation of this filter will involve conversion to and from HTML.
The resulting HTML can subsequently be used with the OOXML filter (or others), which will
enable us to convert ODF to and from different file formats, with HTML as an intermediary

I've specifically mentioned ODF Text documents (word processing documents) for this issue,
as this is what DocFormats is currently designed around; support for spreadsheets and presentations
are separate issues with a different set of tasks/requirements.

The existing (but poorly documented) Word filter provides a design that could be readily adapted
to use in ODF. However, the fact that change detection and updating are intertwined in the
existing Word filter means that this would have to be replicated for the ODF filter as well.
A possible alternative to simply replicating the existing design would be to have change detection
done entirely separately, and modify the interface for both filters to accept a list of changes
to apply, rather than an updated HTML document.
