I have a number of Excel 2003 (and earlier) VBA utilities I would love to move to LibreOffice, since I’m spending more and more time in Mint and Calc, and less and less in Windows and Excel. It seems macro development in LO is largely dependent on OO’s progress in that regard.
My question, really, is this (and it is two-fold):
- is there a VBA-replacement pathway amongst the LibreOffice development team?
- if so, is some flavour of Basic still being supported or (as I fervently hope and wish) is the move to Python?
I believe development of a solid macro/app development language would enable a lot of Excel hold-outs who need that VBE to extend Excel. And, because of its robust nature, I would strongly hope that Python would become the macro/app-dev language of choice.
