Hi there,

I'm going to port the spreadsheet engine to iOS platform. I was just wondering is there anyone here who once did the same work before? Or could someone give me some directions/suggestions to do so?

Regarding of the spreadsheet engine, I mean I do not need any GUI or no any UI related logic and functionality. What I am going to do is try to build a lib which 1) has the ability to load Microsoft excel file. (xls eg). 2) support most of the excel formula, 3) if I change the value of specific cell or a range programly, it will calculate all related formula. And I could get all affected cells and their new value programly.

That's it.

Best regards. Wade

A handful of developers are currently working to port LibreOffice to iOS.

There's some code in version control relating to iOS, but I'm not sure how far along the builds are right now. If you go to the source code search application at you can search for the string "iOS" and get a lot of useful hits. You can also find some useful information on who has committed code to /core/vcl/ios and /core/ios/

My best suggestion is to hop on IRC or the mailing list and ask for information about LO + iOS. If you don't get an immediate response, see if one of the devs listed in the version control history (links above) can point you in the right direction.
