Looking for a free text converter? Look no more, upload your OpenOffice ODT files and convert them to OPML files. Yes, it’s that easy.
Converting from OpenOffice ODT
Having office files in a proprietary format is a big risk, that you should avoid. Thanks to OpenOffice it’s not even hard to do. With the OpenOffice ODT format we’ve got an open format, that is based on other open formats. Every ODT file is a Zip file, that contains at least a content.xml (an XML file) with the — you might have guessed it already - the content. You can open the XML file in the program of your liking, update the content and re-open it in your office program without worrying to break the file. This enables you to interact with your office files through code. And even more important, you can be pretty sure there will always be software to open and edit those files. That’s a big plus, isn’t it?
The files end with
.odt by default.
Converting to OPML
The Outline Processor Markup Language (OPML) is an XML format for outlines, that is mostly used to exchange lists of web feeds between web feed aggregrators. It uses the RFC 822 date format, which is considered obsolete. Fans of the RFC 822 date think it’s a good idea to have only two digits to represent a year. But I have no idea if they were born 1900 or 2000 or if they’ve ever heard of the much cooler RFC 3339. Or how they would call it: RF 39. Anyway. You’re here because you want to use this format. Or you have to. My condolences.The files end with
