Component for Joomla! 1.0 Web CMS Helps Sites Index ODF Files
The ODT indexer component will extend the Joomla search function with the ability to search through the content of indexed .odt files. One of the best known programs that will allow you to open and edit .odt files is OpenOffice.org.
You can add the path to your document in the backend, the component will read and index your file. The mambot that comes with this component will search through the indexed content for matches.
The component does not support the current version 1.5 of Joomla!. It is still helpful to those running the older version of Joomla! on their sites, but one should be aware that there has been no update since 2006. There is no indication on Joomla-Addons.org whether the component also supports Mambo, the project that Joomla! branched off from.
I am looking into addons for Joomla! 1.5+, Mambo 4.6+, Drupal 6+, and similar content management systems. What I’d like to see is tools that accept content-postings as ODF files, tools that will export content articles as exported .odt, .ods, and .odp files, and tools that index and search ODF files stored on a site. I will post anything find anything out right here on Opportunity Knocks.
