So I wanted to test something, for which I needed to create or modify an ODT file. Since ODT files are just ZIPs, I thought “open, edit, zip, done” would be sufficient.
- you need to create the ODT file using a special procedure.
- you may not include extra files into the ODT file (e.g. no “notes.txt” or sth)
The 2nd thing you have to take care of yourself, for the first I wrote a small Mac automator script, using
bin/bash as shell:
SAVE_DIR="$PWD" while read input_dir ; do [[ -d "$input_dir" ]] || continue cd "$input_dir" touch _odt_create_log.txt exec > _odt_create_log.txt exec 2>&1 set -x ODT_FILE="../$(basename "$input_dir").odt" rm -f "$ODT_FILE" zip "$ODT_FILE" -0 mimetype zip -ruo "$ODT_FILE" . -x mimetype _odt_create_log.txt cd "$SAVE_DIR" set +x done
