LibreOffice Wrapper

Windows using DLL (shared library)

A very simple example can be found here: TestLibreOffice.ods. You will need to download the release 32-bit __stdcall shared library for windows from sourceforge or from the development snapshots. Place the downloaded DLL in c:\CoolProp

Linux using python

  1. You will need two files - coolprop.py and TestLibreOfficePy.ods

  2. At the command prompt do something like:

    # Make a folder for the script to reside in
    mkdir -p ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/Scripts/python/
    # Copy the dowloaded .py file to the folder you made (adjust download path as necessary)
    cp ~/Downloads/coolprop.py ~/.config/libreoffice/4/user/Scripts/python/
    
    # Install python script provider (uses python 3)
    sudo apt-get install libreoffice-script-provider-python
    # pyton scripting in LibreOffice uses python3, make sure we populate the right python site-packages folder
    sudo apt-get install python3-pip
    sudo pip3 install Cython
    # Compile CoolProp v5+ manually
    # you need to have numpy and matplotlib already - you can do sudo apt-get install python3-matplotlib
    git clone http://github.com/CoolProp/CoolProp --recursive
    cd CoolProp/wrappers/Python
    sudo python3 setup.py install
