The Document Foundation last year announced plans to create both on-line version as the Android version of LibreOffice office suite, and to celebrate this past weekend the FOSDEM event for developers We could see how this project progresses .
Michael Meeks, SUSE developer and leader of the initiative showed the current state of both versions, and precisely one of the objectives of the development group is to share maximum possible code between the desktop versions, Mobile and Web .
might still be a long road ahead, but for example scene was shown in a prototype application for Android tablets (with Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich), and it seems that their skills promise.
executed in an emulated environment of Android demonstrated to be solved the main problem – LibreOffice adapt to a touch interface – and in fact is expected to be the first milestone of achieving a Document Viewer “High Fidelity” and then add limited editing capabilities they grow.
As with the case of the mobile version, the version code “cloud” is partly inherited from the current code LibreOffice as Meeks explains a complete PDF presentation in English here. application can run on a server and the user interface is “drawn” in the browser via an HTML Canvas element. Ars Technica have more data on the components of this version in the cloud, which could rival Google Docs in the future and we expect to see very rapid progress in the coming months.
