Load a Python Library with Portable Apps LibreOffice on Windows 7?

asked 2018-03-19 06:50:41 +0100 gravatar image

Loading a dependency Library in a regular Linux installation of Python is done using pip.

Loading one using Portable Python on Windows, one can use Easy_Installer.exe

But how is this done using a Python installation contained in a Portable Apps version of Python used for writing LibreOffice macros?

I normally limit myself to the Python libraries that are included with LibreOffice. That way, the code can run on other LibreOffice installations.

I don't have Win 7, but I test in Win 10 (virtual) with LibreOffice Portable 6.4 and I can install pip in and other libraries. You need locate folder with python.exe and execute it.

I try record video for you.

¿What python libraries you want install?

This seems like a good enough answer although the question was asked in 2018 (shown only as '18 but mouseover shows the full date) so it is unlikely you will get a response.

Right, don't look at the date

You can either Run Python Interactive Console or install APSO extension and launch Python shell from its menu

  • additional info following Jim's remark:

Despite its title How to install pip in LibreOffice embedded Python… is describing the process of installing pip3/LibreOffice/Windows and loading a dependency library. I did not verify it…

The question asked how to install libraries such as with pip. Your answer does not seem related.
