Subject Re: FOSDEM 2019: UNO Project as an Idea for Main track or fast talk? (was: FOSDEM 2019: no Open Document Editors devroom?)
Date Wed, 17 Oct 2018 07:40:43 GMT
Not directly. An UNO wrapper could be written to access the ODF toolkit
from other UNO languages (C++, Python, (old) Javascript, StarBasic, OLE
automation). Those languages would have to run in an UNO environment
though. Other approaches to interoperability do exist; UNO's advantage is
good performance when running in-process, and the possibility of network
transparency.

Our UNO implementation does need some maintenance, for example we have no
Win64 UNO bridge (main/bridges), and it's not easy to develop: AMD64
assembly language, and binary internals of Windows's calling convention,
C++ exception handling and RTTI...

Also UNO is pretty heavy, my estimate is around 30 binaries and 30 MB in
size, possibly more.
