Howdy Tom,

Well, I was specifically asking Mauricio, after looking over the example
basic code particularly, I am interested in his thoughts.

As for this being the user mailing list, macros are user level question I
would think, Basic is assumed usually, but Python is just as valid and
about as easily done these only to drop in a couple of extensions.  Maybe
it is a power user question, but still a user question, yes?

However, I suppose your'e right when moving on to talking about generating
extension packages from macros libraries (basic or python).

Hi :)
I think the Devs Mailing list or IPA, IIRC or whatever is prolly better at
giving a good answer to that.  They may be annoyed as it's prolly not what
they usually post to there.  Maybe it's best to try the QA Team?

There used to be a "mentoring" program to help people start to code for

I think LibreOffice is mainly Python but with significant chunks of C, C++
and C# and smaller amounts of other code.  I think pretty much all the Java
has been over-written in Python now.

There may be some devs on this mailinglist who can answer you but it
doesn't hurt to have other places to ask too.  Actually i thought you were
one of our devs but there we go.  I know you have done a lot for LO.
Good luck and regards from
a Tom :)

Howdy, Mauricio, Patrick

I am curious as to why you think python is always the better choice? (ie.
error handling, or whatever; or is it just always so in Patrick's use case
and the example code you supplied there)

Also, I you don't mind me asking. I'm new python scripting in LibreOffice.

Do you have recommendations for setting up tools with LibreOffice to with
Python scripts and perhaps then turning those into an extension.

Right now I am using the following: LibreOffice 6.x, APSO (latest), MRI
(latest), MS Video Code. Which of those would, if any, would you suggest I
look at replacing.

Thanks and best wishes,

Ok, with a factory for self variable into pseudo objects. I was
of this solution already, but I was hoping a better solution in next
version ...
- Do you need this pseudo object code could be better object model
complient next day ?
- Or do you think python will be a better way for
futur ?

Of course, definitely, Python is much better, I always recommend; learn
and used Python with LibreOffice

Best regards
