  1. It would be such a good thing to be able to do the same with document editors like Calliga Words… Do you think this software of you will be capable of collaboratively edit ODT documents?


    • No. What I wrote is strictly plain-text, and intentionally so in order to make it useful for the programming context (code review etc.). The underlying library I use could be used to do this for ODT files, but it's not implemented.

      Projects which do this for ODT do exist, by the way. I don't know how complete they are but from time to time demos are popping up.

    • Ah, I didn't know there were such projects. I'll search for more info.
      Thank you.
