Welcome to OpenDocument XML.org.
This is the official community gathering place and information resource for the OpenDocument Format (ODF) OASIS Standard (ISO/IEC 26300). Suitable for text, spreadsheets, charts, graphs, presentations, and databases, ODF frees documents from their applications-of-origin, enabling them to be exchanged, retrieved, and edited with any OpenDocument-compliant software or tool. This is a community-driven site, and the public is encouraged to contribute content.
Odfpy aims to be a complete API for OpenDocument in Python, essentially an abstraction layer just above the XML format. The main focus is to prevent the programmer from creating invalid documents.
From their website: "A project that aims to become an office suite for Android (a software development platform for mobile devices created by the Open Handset Alliance). In principle we are just working with the Open Document formats, used today in Open Office and other platforms."
Xapian is an open source search engine library written in C++ with bindings for C#, Java, PHP and Ruby. It supports the most commonly used document formats, including of course ODF.
Apache Tika - a subproject of Apache Lucene - is a toolkit for detecting and extracting metadata and structured text content from various documents using existing parser libraries.
Support for ODF was added in Tika 0.3.
