RE: [tdf-discuss] Request for Libre Office on Spoon


Hi all,

Blake from Spoon here. I posted the question about featuring LibreOffice on Spoon, but didn't 
realize I would need to subscribe to the discussion list in order to get replies. I've subscribed 
and caught up on the thread so I'd like to take a moment to backtrack and answer some questions 
posed about the service.

Mac and Linux platform development: No, Spoon does not currently work on these platforms... yet. 
Cross platform development is a priority, though, and it is a project we are working on for the 
near future.

As to Harold Fuchs' question:

"If I create a document using the Spoon version of LibreOffice ("SLO"), where will that document 
exist? On a Spoon server somewhere or on the PC I was using when I ran SLO? If the document 
contains pictures or sound/video clips, where are those?"

Answer: Spoon powered applications perform identically to their native counterparts. Wherever you 
would normally store documents created with a natively installed version of LibreOffice, you would 
be able to do the same with the Spoon virtualized version. As an added bonus/ side note, both free 
and paid Spoon accounts come with a predetermined amount of available cloud storage.

Again, my apologies for not making proper use of the discussion email list earlier. Please let me 
know if you have any further questions. Thanks.

Sincerely,

Blake Madden

I didn't get too deep into Spoon, but it looks a good resource for
LibreOffice users. Not that much different conceptually from Mozilla
offerings.

Hello,

I was referred to this mailing list by Florian Effenberger of The Document Foundation. My name is 
Blake and I work for a company called Spoon, which offers the ability to launch desktop apps from 
the web with no installs.

We recently received a request to add LibreOffice to the Spoon.net app library.  We'd like to 
partner with The Document Foundation to offer LibreOffice on Spoon.  In the interest of 
transparency and public input, Florian suggested I submit my request to this mailing list for 
discussion.

You can see examples of Spoon powered apps at http://spoon.net/apps  . For free apps and trials, 
Spoon is a free service, and all that is needed for distribution is written permission.

Feel free to shoot me an email if you have any questions.  Thanks for your time.

Sincerely,

Blake Madden
