ODT generator for Python

P: 6
Hi people, I need to generate ODT documents from Python so I wonder if there is any module capable to do so.

What I need is to generate an ODT document containing images and text frames with text within. I didn't want to do all the files that form an ODT doc "by hand"...

Can anyone help me?

From my searches, it looks like you could automate OpenOffice with Python scripts.

Also, a Google search on "otdwriter" turned up a bunch of python related stuff.

Hope that helps.

PyUNO would be the automation thing for OpenOffice. But Jayro, why are you asking us? Did you even bother to follow any of the tutorials like one of the Google results?
