OpenOffice.org2GoogleDocs 0.8 :-)

I had some spare time to finish coding of new features for AddOn ;-)
New in version 0.8 are:

  • new method of downloading of documents from Google Docs, this time without using of default web browser ;-) - author of downloading: Stefan Kolarov.
  • translation to Polish, German and Bulgarian. Authors of translation: Polish - me ;-), German - Pascal Herbert, Bulgarian - Stefan Kolarov.

    New version 0.8 you may find on extensions page.

    1. Could you share how the method of downloading without an external web browser works? I have been trying to build a similar tool for Excel and cannot get get it to work.

      At first I figured I could use the export url feature to export the document (e.g. opening will redirect you to a login page then will immediately begin downloading the spreadsheet that corresponds to the KEVAL in the format specified after output=). I have been unable to get Google to accept my program's GET and POST requests in a way that produces this result. Having the details of your method would be much appreciated.

    2. Hi Przemelek,

      I think you have a great concept and am really excited by this tool. I just downloaded v.8.0 and am using it with (mostly Calc).

      It worked great at exporting files. Super easy.

      But I can't get the import to work. After verifying my Google account details are correct, I clicked Google Docs > Import from Google Docs > Get List... and the Get List bar went darker blue for a second, then nothing. No list.

      But there obviously were files on Google since I just successfully exported them there using your tool!

      Any suggestions?

    3. Thanks for the tool.
      If you want I can do the Portuguese (Portugal) translation.

      PS : I see we are "scarlet letter mates" ;)
