#428 new enhancement

Add python-uno library

Description

The xytools plugin offers the ability to open libra/openoffice calc files in QGIS. However it requires the python-uno library that is not available in the osgeo4w installer.

Is it possible to get this implemented? I think its not a great situation where we can open excel spreadsheets easily, but we cannot open files from another open source project.

The docs for the plugin are here:

Can python-uno work without libreoffice? That a quite heavy dependencies. We already have python-xlrd - that also should enabled python to read spreadsheets.

Replying to jef:

I don't know if python-uno can work without libreoffice.

I would like to open a spreadsheet that is saved in .ods format, hence why I would like to install python-uno.
