Hi Christophe,

Did you attend Michael Meeks' presentation at the conference?
Michael said that LibreOffice Online (LOOL) uses HTML5 Canvas
to display the user interface, in other words, it does not use a user
interface toolkit.

Sorry, my fault. I didn't read the whole thread. My mail was only
about porting to Android/IOS.
The Broadway stuff is pretty great in my opinion. While there will be
things that will have to be optimised for the in-browser use case
(mostly window management things, it seems), most of the code written
for it is also relevant for other GTK+ platforms. So, if this means
LibO 3.5 will look near-native in GTK+ 3, you wouldn't even have
needed the whole online availability thing to win me over :).

I am just a bit more pessimistic about Android/IOS, that can share
much less code and it will also be harder to implement. I was quite
surprised when I saw the TDF blog post announcing those ports that
"will become products sometimes in late 2012 or early 2013." I find
this ambitious, but I won't deny the necessity of these ports. That's
