Assistance needed to add Grammar Checker to LibreOffice Writer
As is mentioned on this site, LibreOffice is an open source facility, and is being continually upgraded. It is also mentioned here that there is a pressing need for a grammar checker that operates within the confines of a word processor, such as Word or Writer. As it turns out, the this has already almost been done in the case of Writer... All the rules have already been coded, by Kevin Scannell, and all that needs to be done is to implement them into a format suitable for LibreOffice.
The technical details:
- An API for LibreOffice grammar checkers exists. More info at:
- It uses a structure called UNO. See:
- A programmer familiar with C++, Java, or Python is required. One can work with UNO in any of these languages.
It is estimated that this is about one month’s work.

In keeping with the philosophy of Open Source this work is expected to be voluntary. This is one reason why programs such as LibreOffice are free.
This will be a great resource when implemented.
